Sleaze unearthed at Tory party ISP

With only 1,200 users it shouldn't take long to weed out the miscreants

The Conservative Party has only managed to recruit a paltry 1,200 people to its own blue-branded ISP launched four months ago at its annual conference, The Register can reveal. The disappointing turnout for is likely to cause a few red faces at the party HQ although some have suggested it simply reflects the current popularity of the party at the moment. More embarrassing still, is the ease with which can be abused by anyone registering for the service. Bearing in mind the Tory party's adeptness at political rule bending, it took no time at all to register the email address Derivations of Labour Prime Minister, Tony, have also been reported. With the Conservative Party's high profile it is hard to believe that the organisation didn't set up some screening service to prevent such own goals. Webmaster, Richard Hyland, admitted that didn't employ an "active screening list" but said membership was checked every week or so. He confirmed would be disabled shortly. ® Link: Tory Party ISP site
