Denham noted this will be a complex investigation requiring co-operation from political parties, social media platforms and data analysis companies both within the UK and abroad.
And why does she think that a foreign company specialized in rigging the elections in various places we like to meddle with is going to cooperate? What exactly will make it cooperate? Asking it "Pretty Please, we understand that you were quite good in rigging elections in 20 odd countries half of which are now either dictatorships or mid-civil war, can you please assist us with our query regarding you screwing our country too?"
Yeah, bollocks. Until the DPA develops politics specific teeth (not that this will ever be allowed) and is capable of disqualifying a political party for breaking the law and making election results void it will be exactly like in my fav Russian extra fable added to the Aesop ones by Krylov. The fable about the cook and the cat.

And the cat continues eating. "А Васька слушает да ест".
