First, he was involved in the Blogosphere's campaign to free Nick Hogan, the landlord convicted of .. err .. having people smoke in his pub when he wasn't even there. For fuck's sake.
Hogan was jailed because he couldn't pay the fines and costs slapped on him, but when the Blogosphere had raised the money, OH delivered the cash necessary to free the poor sod.
Then today, as the three most egregiously troughing MP's had their first day in court, OH and friends went down to shout encouragement. No, not encouragement for the fucking MP's, encouragement for the court. Hang those fuckers high.
CF couldn't make it today - pressure of work - but the TV cameras did. As the BBC entitled it:
"MPs Elliott Morley, David Chaytor and Jim Devine are jeered by crowds on leaving Westminster Magistrates Court"
Yeah. And how sweet it is to see.
And would you just look at the footage? People jeering, people shouting abuse. People waving protest banners, people wearing pig masks - no, wait, perhaps that's Elliot Morley.
Fast forward to 30 seconds in, and admire. Free speech, witty protest, in action.
