Security for virtualized datacentres

A usually reliable source directs us to the newly polished-up web site of Number 10 Downing Street, suggesting we might care to take a look at the interesting choice of metatags for the site. So off you go everybody, over to the site, look at the source of the page, and up near the top you have...

"10 Downing Street, Prime Minister, United Kingdom, Tony Blair, UK Government, News, PMQs, Prime Minister's Questions, press briefings..." Which all seems logical and fair enough. "E-petition, E-mail updates, Winston Churchill..." Again, logical enough because although Winston may not have been prime minister for a while now, he's the most famous of the lot, isn't he?

"Margaret Thatcher, Cabinet, Ministers, Whitehall..." Hang on, what was that? "Margaret Thatcher?" You've got the current prime minister, the most famous prime minister, and... her. What's she doing there? Have the last of the loyalists got jobs as Number 10 webmasters to further a plot to engineer the return of the dictatorship of the Duchess of Hacksaw?

That thought's terrifying enough for you to forget to wonder what "war on terrorism" is doing there, isn't it? ®
