The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

Here's a new use for the Internet and Web sites - an efficient lie-detector for politicians.

You won't have failed to notice that the Labour party, sorry New Labour party has become a little more right wing than it used to be. Hence the word "new". Of course, it has never been daft enough to say it is turning its back on Marx and socialism - it's just done it and managed to pull off a second Labour term for the first time ever.

But it you wanted proof that New Labour no longer holds these beliefs, you need only visit its Web site and ask. As such, we taped in Labour's URL, went to the search engine and asked about Marxism. This was the result:

Screengrab of Labour's site - no matches were found for Marxism

Proof, were it needed, that Tony Blair is a reincarnation of that mad old bat Margaret Thatcher. ®
