Peter Mandelson, the ex-MP, current lord and power broker we love to loathe has been named Internet Villain of the Year.
Mandy was named the biggest internet villain of the year by the Internet Service Providers' Association, thanks in part, though probably not wholly, to his giving birth to and raising the bastard son of a thousand rights holders - the Digital Economy Act.
Mandy got the gong last night, we weren't there and we doubt he was either. Knowing him, as we don't, we can only assume that he's lurking on a yacht somewhere with some other equally unpleasant people.
Conversely, the internet hero of the year was Tom Watson, the MP who took a stand against the onerous Act. Reading between the lines Sneak thinks that the Digital Economy Act is an opinion splitter, but then he was always slow to work things out.
In an ideal world the prize for winning villain of the year would be a ticket into space, preferably a one way one, but we suspect it's actually some sort of gong which few of the winners ever pick up.
Sneak would like to volunteer to hand deliver the trophy to Mandy in person, or at the very least hurl it through a window of his.
Either way, congrats Peter, it couldn't have have happened to a more deserving individual.
