Prebble's Rebels Remove Subversive Link From Site

In light of recent controversy over dangerous links on political web sites, Prebble's Rebels has withdrawn a potentially subversive link from their own site.

Rebel Webmaster, Gavin Middleton, said that a link from the Rebels site to the Alliance party's homepage was removed due to concern about material on the Alliance site.

Mr Middleton said "examination of the Alliance's policy section has been causing us growing concern throughout the campaign. Following the uproar over the Greens website, we did not want to risk exposing people to the dangerous, extremist information that lurks within the Alliance's web presence."

"Electing a Labour/Alliance government is the quickest way to sabotage our economy, destroy jobs and growth, and to deprive our young people of opportunities to fulfil their potential."

Mr Middleton said "after the Wild Greens had stopped linking to information on how to disable heavy machinery we decided it was only right to take down our link to a site which had policies that would disable the economy."
