Buzzing Back....

Fear not Dear reader, the Hornet hasnt shut up hive and moved off. She has been diligently looking at the recent events and it is a sorry state of affairs.

The website that Cllr Palmer refers to in his recent email to most councillors, a handful of officers and a member of the public has according to him "co-incidently" been taken down, well, as Hornet will show you its more "convenient" after Cllr Palmer had been steered toward it.

Here is an extract of the email:

Dear Fellow Councillors,

Last Thursday night Hornets web site said that emails could be sent by sending emails to the following address. It was brought to my attention that with the use of Google  the only other place you would find this address was on the web site..... 

The email he sent out claimed that Hornets email was connected to a website containing unsavoury pictures, Hornet had a look at the link included within his email and while there are definitely some peculiar offerings it is by and large a regular image hosting site, similar to Flickr, Picassa, Yahoo Pictures,  and a host of other commercial sites that enable anyone to upload their online albums. Indeed the site owners have clearly stated they will  act against anyone posting illegal material.

The interesting point here Dear Reader, is that the email address field to which Cllr Palmer allures is in fact free text - it doesnt require validation. That means anyone, even you now reading this, can create a profile and in the email field write the email address of anyone you like and it does not send out an email to validate the entry.

In a short period of time you can then Google the email address you entered and lo and behold be steered to that profile page displaying whatever pictures that have been uploaded. Of course Dear Reader, Hornet does NOT suggest anyone do this, nor has she done it herself. She wouldn't stoop so low.

As for hacking, it is true someone has managed to obtain access to the email account used by Hornet which is why it is taken down, and will be replaced shortly. It is probably the same person who, back in late 2010 managed to disrupt the blog page, but thankfully fell short of doing real damage, except posting many hundred gibberish comments. Hornet has been working with the appropriate authorities and bodies to attempt to uncover the perpertrator or perpertrators in this rather sad and sorry affair.

It is all an attempt by someone to silence Hornet or to discredit her to the extent her sources dry up.

Nice try. But the Dame is back.

With a vengeance.


  1. Can the Dame( who seems to know everything) explain why Mr Suresh Gupta and his daughter, who works in the Cabinet Office has been cc'd.

  2. Happy days.

    Do you note how your counter goes up when you are absent for a bit? People are desperate for your kind of news.

    Anyway, where were we? Ah yes, the results of the Driveller survey ...

  3. Unfortunately thats a question Hornet cannot answer, they were cc'd for reasons known only to the sender of the original email

  4. I wonder if there can be any connection between Mr Gupta's fury at being focused on by the Dame and the recent disturbing events. Why else would he and his daughter be included by the buffoon Palmer. Incidentally, time he resigned over this abuse of council resources. The man is a liability

  5. Hornet is clearly getting up the nose of Cllr Cockell and his henchmen, including the unemployed Cllr Palmer. So much so that they are resorting to desperate measures to try and silence the dame.

    Could it be that they fear more embarassing revalations in the lead up to the Leaders confirmation of office by conservative councillors in May?

    Perish the thought.....

  6. This design is steller! You definitely know how to keep a reader entertained.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well,
    almost...HaHa!) Wonderful job. I really loved what you had to say,
    and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!

  8. I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way
    of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

    Stop by my blog post; reviewed quantrim
