Stilgherrian takes weekly nominations for "Cnut of the Week". Traditionally the gong goes to Stephen Conroy, for his increasingly futile attempts to hold back the (largely imaginary) tide of paedophiles sweeping over the internet.

Unfortunately I believe this week's spot has already been claimed. However, I'd like to make an early nomination for next week.

Steve Turner, assistant secretary of the Public Service Association of NSW, said ... the blame did not lie solely with the Government as "any computer system can be hacked ... even American defence force computers".

[update 12/2/2009] Nope, there hadn't been a Stilgherrian Live for a while. There is now though, so consider this a nomination[/update]
