Spartaci Wanted 21

Your chance to shout “I’m Spartacus!” Volunteers are wanted to post a PDF of “The Catholic Orangemen of Togo” on 12 January. UK volunteers are very welcome, but as many jurisdictions as possible are helpful.

The downside is that you may have your collar felt by Schillings, and be disliked by some rather unfriendly mercenaries. OK, that’s a big downside. The upside is that you’ll get to read the book before everybody else.

Volunteers please email [email protected]

If you don’t have the facility to host the PDF, be ready to post a link to one on the day.

    Two good choices (which I expect you'll be familiar with) are Wikileaks and Cryptome.

    Both strongly support freedom of speech, and have a good record of keeping suppressed documents available. Wikileaks in particular has experience of Schillings before.

    Have you also thought about making it avaliable on a P2P basis. In adittion to your website you could put a torrent for people to download. Once a few people have got hold of it, it would be a lot harder to stop as it wouldn't be the case of jsut shutting a website down.

    Please do put a donate link up at some point when you release the book.

    I have no website but will be a down-loader, of course. This blurb may interest you ! As usual there, the comments are often brilliant , and the article complete crap .

    TITLE —

    How can a government function if it cannot trust its civil servants?

    There are clear routes for civil servants to air issues, but leaking isn't one of them

    Try putting it on BitTorrent

    or Rapidshare:

    and then post a link on 4chan's Random board [contains questionable content]

    Servers are in America, as is about half the user base, but stuff that shows up there has a habit of exploding throughout the internet (it's where Rickrolling, pictures of cats with mis-spelled captions, and fake motivational posters come from). Plus, people there have a habt of sharing and a general contempt of authority, and their demographics probably overlap little with the sorts who read your blog.

    Invitation gladly accepted. Come January 12, you can expect to see it up on me blog.

    Incidentally, Craig, any idea what's happening with the Michael Winterbottom project? I'm a big fan of his stuff (and indeed yours), so I was quite excited about the whole thing – but haven't heard anything for a long while now …

    My blog is hosted in the States, although I am in the UK.

    Will you be publishing at some point, if not Wikileaks would be good, plus a few torrent sites…

    The book is 'Chilling and Shocking' as they say in your SuperSoarawayRag.

    However, some guidelines are also requested.


    Should the whole PDF be posted as one article, or do you want 'a chapter a day'?.

    I am reasonably comp literate but others may want to know something of the nutz'n'boltz.

    Anyway, I am pretty sure you will get a result and I have asked for the whole PDF to be embedded on a pair of Dock Martens for Christmas.

    The recipient yet to be chosen.

    Chutzpah? Hypocrisy? Did he declare an interest? Answers Yes Yes and No

    Fatty Soames in the HofC yesterday without mentioning the fat packet he gets from being a non executive Director of Aegis, Spicer's outfit who have benefited greatly from providing their services in Iraq.

    Nicholas Soames (Mid Sussex, Conservative)

    I join hon. Members on both sides of the House in praising the exceptional success of British troops in Iraq. At this time of year, we should also remember their families, who have been so steadfast for so long. Will the Prime Minister reflect on the fact that British troops have through the war-fighting phase and into the peacekeeping phase exhibited a range of skills almost unmatched by any other armed forces anywhere in the world, and that those skills are only sustained, at the same time as we are fighting in Afghanistan, by a considerable investment in defence training? Will the Prime Minister bear that in mind when those very great demands come to be made?

    Tim H,

    Film has funding problems, apparently.


    Thanks. You are actually the first person outside my world-weary ex-publisher who has read it and given me a reaction! I was worried people might find it boring (honest – not fishing for compliments), so "chilling and shocking" is good.

    I want it just put out complete on 12 January, so we hit Schillings with a flood of truth.
