Spending Challenge - classic fail

Lesson One for running discussion website:

If you're going to do "wiki-politics" at least make sure you've got a moderator that is paying attention to what is on your site.

Many more examples of how the Spending Challenge website is little more than an echo chamber for webtards at the Other Taxpayers Alliance.

Private Eye won't need to make up their "From the Messageboards" column in the next issue, they can just cut and paste the real thing, e.g forcing cats to spend one hour per day on electrical treadmills or a windfall tax on people called Steve.

Clifford Singer from the Other Taxpayers Alliance and creator of the Cameron poster satire site, My David Cameron, summed it up beautfiully to me saying,
"I'm just worried those of us who want to deliberately create parody websites are being put out of business."
Never a truer word spoken.

Frankly, this is the funniest thing I've seen all day.
