Web Game Lampoons British Govt's Plan to Monitor Internet Usage

May 4, 2009 -

The Labour Goverment of Prime Minister Gordon Brown is pushing ahead with plans to monitor all Internet usage in the U.K.

Britain's Conservative Party is against to the plan and that opposition is the basis for t-enterprise's latest online political parody, Hands Off Our Data!

In the game players assume the role of Conservative leader David Cameron. Wielding an old school raygun, players must blast data mining spiders bearing the likenesses of Gordon Brown and Home Secretary Jacqui Smith while allowing e-mail packets and search engine traffic to pass by.

It's like Britain during WW2, and before.

Now if Jeremy Clarkson was Prime Minister he would fix things up!

Just relax everyone. We are "in the home stretch" to use a baseball term. Old people in positions of power who don't understand this new fangled internet thing with its freedom of information that arrives from a series of tubes are going to die off soon enough. Their generation is almost done. Then the UK can finally enjoy a normal life again being run by people who have only known a world with computers and information at their fingertips.

Public apathy is still ripe so even if the old coldgers die off the young morons that via for votes and bend over for business as a job will keep screwing the people over.

Copyright infringement is nothing more than civil disobedience to a bad set of laws. Let's renegotiate them.

Depends on how much damage the current generation does to basic freedom in the meantime, and as stated above, they are still politicians, which means they may still shoot for the votes of overprotective parents and old people, andi n Obama's case, people who won't vote for them regardless.

Re: Web Game Lampoons British Govt's Plan to Monitor ...

Just because they know how to use a computer doesn't make them any less c**ts. They will still be politicians after all.

Again, it is totally sickening to see a supposedly "free" country trying to monitor internet traffic.

Something that everybody seems to forget is that you just need to look back at history and you will so that it has all been done before.  Look at EverQuest, it is still going strong with the same game play from the past. Does anybody think that it really matters.

Andrew EisenNeo - If you're not bleeding then it's probably not you who needs to go to the doctor.11/23/2014 - 5:45pm

Wonderkarpwhich is interesting cause this the first one 100% made by 2k games after the THQ buy11/23/2014 - 4:17pm
Wonderkarpbleh. the more I play WWE 2k15 on PS4, the more I get disappointed.11/23/2014 - 4:09pm
Neo_DrKefkaIt happened around 1030 this morning. I was not blooding because blood was on my hands11/23/2014 - 3:50pm
Andrew EisenThat depends on a lot. Were you bleeding at the time you requested to leave or did you want to leave work to go to the doctor over an incident that happened on a different day that you didn't file an incident report for?11/23/2014 - 3:21pm
Neo_DrKefkaThat would be a major OSHA violation correct?11/23/2014 - 1:54pm
Neo_DrKefkaOff topic but I was at work and went over to the first aid kit to get some eye drops. I look at my hand and noticed blood on my hands. My employers said their is no incident report and they won't send me to see a doctor and that I am abandoning my job.11/23/2014 - 1:54pm
MaskedPixelanteThe more I hear about AC Unity being rushed out, the more I think Ubisoft was telling the truth about why they couldn't add female co-op models.11/23/2014 - 1:14pm
IanCI wouldnt say the 360/PS3 version were superior. They were different games.11/23/2014 - 11:49am
MechaTama31It's hard to rank my top 5 against eachother, but they would include Ghostbusters, Back to the Future (all of it), Monty Python and the Holy Grail, The Shawshank Redemption, and The Princess Bride.11/23/2014 - 11:09am
Andrew EisenTrue, but I liked the fact that rather than do a crappy looking version of the PS3/360 version, it went with an art style more suited to the Wii's strengths.11/23/2014 - 12:26am
