Labour lose case over “abusive registration” of domain name

Carshalton and Wallington Labour Party has lost a case over the suttonlibdems.org.uk domain name, which it had registered.

Gerry Jerome from Sutton Liberal Democrats took the case through Nominet’s Dispute Resolution Service, which concluded that Labour’s action in registering the domain name and using it to urge people to vote Labour amounted to an “abusive registration”.

Unless Labour appear by 10 October, the domain name will be handed over to Sutton Liberal Democrats.

(Gerry is happy to advise any other local parties in similar situations; just let me know.)

  • As usual, Chris Paul’s robotic response makes no sense to anyone except himself.

    “I mean, if it wasn’t Labour that tried to plant this false story, which the Express didn’t run, how would Chris know about it?”

    This claim has been reported by the local press in Richdale:

  • Has anyone ever seen Chris Paul and Grant Shapps together? Cold they be related = or could that infamous 1234 password have returned again?
