Uzbek billionaire silences bloggers


I am a little late with this but Alisher Usmanov who is an Uzbek billionaire has managed to close down a few blogs after threatening their webhost with legal action if they didn’t.

The fact that he was able to have the blogs closed down without any court action shows that money talks and you don’t even need the courts to make the decision. Anyone with a blog should publicise this so everyone knows that this creature is trying to silence his critics and destroy free speech over the internet.

Could You Please mention the appalling service that West Midland Travel Offer on Your programme at 6. Despite Complaining to the company, I have no response other than to say they are investigating the matter.

If their investigations are as poor as the buses then I will not hold my breath!!!! The Buses are always late, the drivers don't seem to understand speed limits, and are very often rude and can be quite racist.

Their is no incentive to use public transport, i will stick to my car

Thank You
