Another disturbing development on Facebook, brought to you via Same Difference:
Campaigner and reader Gail Ward posted something on Facebook last night that I’m not at all happy to hear. That is that our fellow disability rights campaigner, Tisme’s Cares, has had her account removed by Facebook.
I caan only assume that this is beause she does not follow their ‘real name’ policy.
Tisme’s Cares does a lot of good work for disabled people and carers through Facebook. She shares useful information and requests advice for her followers and friends.
Gail Ward wannts to try to get Tisme’s Cares’ Facebook account reinstated. In this, Gail Ward has the full support of Same Difference.
Updated 10.45: Gail Ward has now set up a petition. Please sign and share widely.
This development, so soon after Keith Cameron’s ‘A Letter A Day To Number 10’ page was ruined by a hostile takeover, is extremely worrying. It seems that certain elements (and we all know who they are – the people attacked are prominent leftie bloggers) are determined to win the political debate by removing anyone who dares to disagree with their blinkered, small-minded, right-wing point of view. They are all Friends Of Ol’ Lynton (Crosby) to be sure!
How long before they try it on you? Better be prepared for the moment.
