UK ISPs Ask for Judicial Review of Digital Economy Act

UK ISPs TalkTalk and BT have asked the country’s high court to determine the legality of the controversial Digital Economy Act before it is fully implemented.

They believe the Act was passed into law without going through the correct parliamentary procedures, that it was rushed through Parliament in the ”wash up” period, and that this haste meant it became law without being properly scrutinized and without its impact being properly assessed.

As I mentioned before after the Act’s passage, a process that would’ve normally taken several weeks or even months of legislative scrutiny was squeezed into a two-hour Commons debate where only 39 of 646 MPs took part (5%). Largely ignored were the more than 20,000 people who wrote their MPs voicing their opposition to the DEB and demanding “proper consideration” of the bill’s effects.

Another case of the unacceptable side of politics. Let's see if the politicians stated aim of cleaning up the bad aspects of the political scene comes about in reality or vested interests prevail.
