And then they came for the Sceptics……..

A British blogger who was one of the first Climate Sceptics to receive the Climategate2 Emails has had his home raided, and computers seized.

An Englishman’s home is his castle they say. Not when six detectives from the Metropolitan Police, the Norfolk Constabulary and the Computer Crime division arrive on your doorstep with a warrant to search it though.

I waved the first three in and bid them head through to the sitting room, where there was less of an chill near the woodburner. Then they kept coming, being introduced by the lead detective from Norfolk as they trooped in. I thought I’d been chosen to host the secret policemen’s ball or something. :)

Go and read it all over at Tallbloke’s Talkshop.

If they really just want copies they could have asked me. I’d have saved them the time and trouble, by just E mailing them to Force headquarters.


  1. Frightening, bloody frightening.

    The question HAS to be asked:- "Why did Norfolk Plod not confiscate many of the computers from UEA', where there is prima facie evidence of actual crimes being committed?
