So who's the company?
Dettica (BAe infrastructure spying subsidary)
Fail as I don't consider bumping up £500m of UK taxpayers money spent on "Cyber security" (WTF that is) well spent.
UK security and counter-terrorism minister Baroness Neville-Jones steps down after a year in the job. The former chairman of the British Joint Intelligence Committee is leaving at "her own request" in order to work in the private sector. The peer will retain a role liaising between government and business as special …
...it just means that the customers, or so the directors believe, will come to companies "endorsed" by having a named VIP on the board.
Sorry but if I see some muppet MP on the board of a company I am interested in, I have to seriously ask myself if I really want to be involved with them!

Is that a step down or a step up .... from being a national government minister to working in the private sector? Many people would have assumed that national government leadership is a role which cannot be trumped but it just appears to be a holding position at the expense of the public purse until something more lucrative comes along, and that would make being in government something of a non-event and nothing at all special. Indeed, it could be classified as a sub-prime business model which preys upon the electorate.
And that was a very pertinent/impertinent query raised by Whitter who posted Wednesday 11th May 2011 11:10 GMT .... "Aren't misisters meant to be banned from going straight from public office to business in the same sector?"
Why are attacks against businesses the government's problem? Surely no intelligent goverment would have infrastructure critical to national security built, owned and operated by the lowest bidder?
So these attcks are the corporate issues. The corporations can pay to deal with them...or wait for the police. Federal government intervention seems like playing favourites. Do private citizens get such intervention?
