Bliar’s Legacy Live On

John O’Nolan, wrote in a blog post: “we’ve elected to move the default location for all customer data from the UK to DigitalOcean’s [Amsterdam] data centre. The Netherlands is ranked #2 in the world for Freedom of Press, and has a long history of liberal institutions, laws and funds designed to support and defend independent journalism.”

Being English I was once proud of our belief and actions that we used to call ‘The Freedom of The Press’. Being English I am now angry how that it is not just being torn down bit by bit - but actually being torn down wholesale. Bliar started it - but truly disappointed that Cameroon (sic) has done nothing to reverse this decline and just watches. And now companies are voting with their feet.
