Someone just sent me a link to a post in Chicken Yoghurt's blog...

Tim Ireland’s Bloggerheads site is currently down after his webhost pulled the plug. You can thank the latest Russian (that should be Uzbek) billionaire to reach the UK.
Tim’s currently also without email so if anyone needs to get hold of him, I’m happy to be the go-between and pass on any message by phone. My email address is at the top of the page.
This also means that the family of websites that Tim and Clive (whose site is also down) look after are also currently AWOL. So if you’re missing the online presences of Craig Murray, Bob Piper or Boris Johnson, now you know why they’ve gone.
Tim and Clive are now looking for a new web home from themselves and the rest and are hoping to be back within 48 hours. If any sympathetic souls would help spread the word, it would be most appreciated.
and, yes, the blogs in question do appear to be unavailable
Yet more proof, if ever it were needed, that we in the UK are gifted with the finest legal system that money can buy
Given that this situation appears to involve banning of blog sites and the British establishment's ongoing policy of kissing oligarch arse, two subjects dear to my heart, I should be joining in with others screaming from the rooftops about this
and I probably will
However, there is a certain degree of irony involved as at least one of the bloggers caught up in this has been involved in one or two unsound campaigns (imho) against blogs he doesn't like himself. On top of that, several of the blogs coming out against what has happened over the last couple of days have also been prone to heaping abuse on we Conspiraloons in the past and, presumably, the present - though I'm not sure as I stopped reading them some time ago
Personally, I'm all for finding common cause with decent people unhappy about the direction our lives are being pushed towards, even if they hold some beliefs that I believe to be misguided - and that includes people of religious, political or scientific faith. Divide and rule is a tactic of the powerful and I for one try very, very hard not to be suckered into that game
So, yes, the latest act of censorship stinks and needs to be publicised and acted against. It would just be nice if some of the people caught up in it weren't in the habit of accusing my conspirabuddies who have issues with the 'Official Narrative' of 7/7 of being insane c*nts
edit: Lord Patel has more here
edit #2: Tim Worstall has compiled a list of bloggers who have commented on and criticised the actions of a certain Uzbek
