A good question that needs to be asked is why has BBM decided to clampdown on the internet now? Is it to detract attention from the Committee set to implement the proposals of the Constitutional Conference which met a few weeks back? Or is it to hose down the furore enraging Samira Rajab's tactless comments? More likely the former. If anything though, this is only more likely to raise the calls for the return of the 1973 constitution that Bahrainis have been calling for since 1975, which was again hijacked by the King in 2002.
