Elect Green MPs to fight the Digital Economy Bill

19 April 2010

The Digital Economy Bill is deeply flawed and illiberal, says the Green Party. The Bill could lead to people being forcibly disconnected from the internet ... or your company's videos on YouTube being blocked.

Tens of thousands of concerned citizens have lobbied about the content of the legislation. Yet, parliament only debated the forty-two clauses of the Bill for 7 1/2 hours, say campaigners.

"This is another reason to elect Green MPs," said a party spokesperson today. "Any Green MPs will provide a rallying point for opposition to the Digital Economy Bill."
