Let's presume a member of the chinese intelligence would have informed the general public about undreamed details of the whole dimension of digital snoopery and hacking activities of the chinese intelligence. This whistleblower would have fled from china in search of asylum. How fast a private jet of the CIA would be underway, the man celebrated as a hero of freedom witnessing in front of congressman and woman?
Artful Dodger: And a new one hit this weekend. That the family of Stephen Lawrence were targeted by a Met police smear campaign so they might go away and not end up (as they did) revealing how institutionally racist the Met police force was through their campaign for justice.
18 years to convict the killers, just because Stephen and his family were black.
N' now it looks like the UK's GCHQ used the USA's abuse of the Patriot act to spy on US citizens to illegally spy on UK citizens. The UK government tried to get the power to collect all our web browsing data but couldn't get it through Parliament. The Liberal democrats would not vote for it killing the idea.
... It seems the Data Protection act means didly squat. But I knew that anyway...
Artful Dodger: On "Question time" last night that was mentioned. More talk was on the latest batch of "cash for questions".. paid lobbying to you. Yet another sting operation was carried out by the Sunday Times and BBC with hidden cameras.
All broadcast on "Panorama" last night.
Funny, you'd thought after the last time it was done our "Lords" and MP's would be more careful about being caught with their heads well and truly in the trough.
rod03801: I think it's safe to assume a mermaid terrorist cell was discovered. Seizing the domain name is just the first step. They'll need to follow through by physically going in to seize the mermaids themselves. This isn't as easy as it sounds, because them mermaids is slippery and hard to hold onto. They'll also need to clean up any water that gets sloshed onto the floor, after the mermaids are dragged out of their tanks and put under arrest.
Our tax dollars at work. I don't know about you, but I feel a lot safer knowing our government is doing all that it can to keep those mermaids from... from, uh...
Artful Dodger: I clicked on that Mermaid site, and you know what I got?
I got a message saying: This domain name has been seized by DOJ-Homeland Security Investigations, pursuant to a seizure warrent issued by a United States Distric Court under the authority of blah blah blah blah yadda yadda blah.
Iamon lyme: It's ok... I've adopted the standard of not answering as laid out in "Yes Minister" and "Yes Prime Minister". Also with contributions from 'Prime Ministers question time' and Saturday and Sunday politics shows where saying nothing is the norm...
.. also, it seems to be the standard here.
It'd be nice if that changed... a Common principle.
