Would you like some sanctimonious claptrap?

In my work researching, writing, and speaking about digital laws, I often come across quotes from politicians and legislators which make me want to cry.

Or laugh.

Or stick my head out the window and scream.

Or do all three at the same time.

Last week, while procrastinating on a task I really didn’t want to do (who me?), I decided to give these quotes a home.

I’ve put them on a separate blog called Sanctimonious Claptrap. You may recall that phrase, which was a securocrat peer’s condescending view of the legitimate objections raised to his Snooper’s Charter. (And they would have gotten away with it too if it wasn’t for you meddling kids.)

If you have any more sanctimonious claptrap for me, do share.
