Never mind the Mail & the Mirror supporting the Blackshirts. More to the point what about our wonderful grasping treacherous royals? one of whom with his American tart was a great friend of Adolf Hitler. When he abdicated, Churchill saved his rotten hide by shipping him out of the UK as Governor General of the Bahamas, no doubt to save him being strung up from the nearest lampost by the people who would have been enraged by this Nazi loving moron.

Re: So "Don't Buy American"?
I trust none of the so called security agencies, least of al the NSA who seem to think that destabilising an elected foreign governmnent by the use of paid thugs to create riots all financed by the State Department is legitemate and legal.This action was of course supported by the whimpering jellyfish of a UK government who have to ask the US permission to wipe their own backsides.
No longer do the USA and the UK governments represent freedom, they are both quick to condemn other states for their short comings but con their own populations by selling them the lie of securitry.
Without the this big con, the US and UK arms makers and dealers would go bust.
Why is the US State Department so worried about a single guy holed up in the Chilean Embassy in London? Are they terrified he might just release even more truths about the us, uk, nato and the dodgy nuclear deals with Israel? or are they afraid that the truth might be revealed regarding which countries missile brought down a civilian airliner? History tells us that the US is very adept at downing civilian airliners and decorating those responsible. Of the major powers, the US and the UK are not to be trusted, neither for that matter are the USSR, Israel or Saudi Arabia they are all "goverened by melagomaniacs.
Re: the TPS is not worth the paper it is written on
Vimes I have a method which seems to work quite well. My 'phone and ISP link are attached to a"black box" which does the following a) Starts recording immediately I answer the 'phone for any speech call b) commences to unpick router links and creates a table for use at a later date.
I then present the evidence to the ICO with the proviso that they commence proceedings or I will proceed against them for failing in their duty for which we the taxpayer fund them.
Since I started this exercise 3 years ago my nuisance calls have fallen from 11 a day to 2 a month.
Re: Analogue vs. Digital
I guess I am a few years and some older than you, during the "cold war" I spent 3 months down a sewer in West Berlin tapping trunk cable which ran in a loop with branches under East Berlin. This exercise produced some 15 -20 reels of recording tape a day. A suspicious looking cove with a weak chin an a snotty accent collected them and drove away in an unmarked American truck. Nothing is new in this murky world of government paranoia.
Re: "we will restore those settings"
Mentioning Microsoft an virginity in the same breath is almost a technical oxymoron. Better to mention prostitution and Microsoft would be a more honest opinion. Technical excellence and Microsoft parted company some time ago when the rabid marketeers with a shared braincell decided they were masters of the universe.
Re: "The volumes of data are enormous on the internet"
GCHQ are welcome to metadata on all calls, if they really want to bust a gut anyone with any interest in personal freedom and privacy can cause havoc by sending an email containing random telephone number encrypted metadata to all their contacts on social media the recipients can then forward the same message to all their contacts, rinse and repeat and GCHQ will be non too happy. I design encryption algorithms for secure data, just alteration to one block in the algorithm plus a cycling additional prime number would be sufficient. I would consider it to be legal research into encryption techniques if it causes them problems, they shouldn't be sniffing around in my personal data in the first place.
Someone needs to educate this idiot forcefully if need be by slapping him every time he speaks.
The really bad guys don't use registered 'phones they buy a disposable phone use it and dump it. While these 'phones are available without the need to register them to a checkable address, then they will continue to be used. When that happens, the bad guys being very clever will clone a 'phones user ID and then dump it once it has been used. All this nonsense regarding helping the police and the security services is flim flam, and the sheep are slowly and surely being brainwashed into accepting the lies emanating from both the Hole Office and GCHQ. Should the government think it acceptable to spy on its citizens, I consider it is legally acceptable to spy on our government which were elected to represent us.
When the government no longer trust the electorate, it is time for the electorate to remove the government.
No longer "of the people, by the people, for the people" it has been prostituted to become "by the powerful, for the powerful" Warmongers, corrupt bankers, on the take politicians, big Pharma, tax avoiders, arms dealers, and state sponsored terrorist supporters (hello CIA, NSA, State Department, FCO, MI5, IDF, AIPAC) we all know who you are. Not forgetting the died in the wool neocons, (Hello Yes go on kiddies) who haven't an original thought in their empty skulls and rely on Fox News (That's a joke in itself) the Daily Wail and the assorted gutter press.
Wolfclaw, the evidence that Cameron is lying again is irrefutable. Yes he probably is illiterate regarding I.T. most 3rd rate recycled failed PR people are. More to the point he is dangerous and many of his neocon friends in the UK and across the pond in the land of the not so free love him. UK Patriot Act anyone?
and there hangs the problem and the government,s excuse to use its overarching powers.
Who determines who or who is not a suspect? Answer the government and its "security" agencies including the Home Office, GCHQ, MI5, MI6, The FCO, and strangely enough the creeps from the CIA who are answerable to nobody.
If in the future anyone takes issue with the government, the basis of all modern democracies, the government will use one of the oldest pieces of legislation still on the statute book, "The Defence of the Realm Act" This in many parts is similar to the US Patriot Acts 1 & 2. i.e.The power to declare ANY public meeting or demonstration illegal and arrest without warrant any individual or group of individuals that the government considers a threat or a perceived threat.
Those arrested will be held without access to legal representation and brought before a court held in camera. The presiding judge will be appointed by the Home Secretary and will pass judgement on the evidence of arrest plus any "evidence" gleaned by the security services. A disreputable and morally weak government could and probably would use this absolute power to silence any opposition, discussion or condemnation of its policies.
An example of totally non democratic control and over arching secrecy, is the Bank of England, and its secretive and shadowy "nominees" It is an offence under the Official Secrets Act to disclose, name or publish the list of "nominees" Why? because then the public would know, who really controls the government and the BOE.
Once government is no longer trusted by the electorate, it is time to remove the government. Freedom of speech is slowly being eroded, what next, freedom of thought? The diminishing freedoms that we still enjoy were never given freely by the government or its establishment friends, every single freedom had to be fought for.
TalkTalk plays 'no legal obligation' card on encryption – fails to think of the children (read: its customers)
I do hope that this silly ex marketing women tries to defend this useless company in court.
May be not a criminal offence, but in Civil and Common law she and the company have a problem.
A company and its officers and servants have a duty of care to protect the property and information relating to their customer from theft, misuse and any loss, damage or otherwise if the comapn, its officers and servants fail to use all reasonable methods to prevent loss, damage or abuse.
Reasonable methods within the industry would be the de facto standard encryption.
Please some one sue this arrogant women and Talk, Talk using Civil Law.
Typical of Microsofts increasing arrogance over the last few years. From the "We know what is best for you school of failed PR executives" Every update that comes from Microsoft is examined, checked for viruses and scrutinised before anyone in my company is allowed to install it. As soon as a working alternative to Microsofts bloatware is available, Microsoft will be dumped.
Re: The law is an ass
The law is not always an ass. Some of the time it is there to protect the majority from moronic little prats who consider playing with their toys is more important than concentrating on safe driving. This sad idiot should never have been issued with a driving licence. I bet he can't wait to get his hands on a driverless car!
Re: Microsoft taking a swipe at another company
The only thing that Microsoft has learned is advanced marketing for spivs. Why is it that IE has been a total security failure for the lasy 8 upgrades. Could it be that Microsoft has "invested" more in marketing than software engineers? Answer on an email not via IE9.
Re: Yet another Agile F**K up
So true.Some years ago, having explained to a bunch of collective morons that the database that they designed was totally inaccurate due to the fact not one of them had database design, test and implimentation skills I decided that perhaps I would be better employed working with professionals rather than damage my blood pressure dealing with idiots in Central Government. Since making that decison I am more relaxed and better off financially.
Re: Markie Sugar town Cannot be Trusted
20 year ago we had remedial english and maths courses for students in the first year at university! Nothing has improved since then it has got progressively worse. Try failing a student for poor work and then be prepared to lose your tenure, because the real thickos with wealthy parents are under the misapprehension that their overindulged spoiled brat is a genius and they call the shots.The fact that their offspring can't communicate in their mother tongue and requires a calculator to do simple addition is not even considered a problem. The real problem comes later when these same village idiots are given responsibility way above their intelligence level because of their parents "connections" and financial clout.
I despair of the West stopping the educational rot, it is given lip service with emphasis on wealth however obtained legally or illegally. Service to the community and the country has become a dirty word.
Wow have you serious problems. The jury with brains is still out on 9/11 as the inconsistencies found by experts all point to a deliberate act internally, the planes did not cause ths building collapse the internal explosions did. You of course mouthing off about everything are obviously an expert or a total dipstick. Somehow I don't see you as an expert, but I do see you as a brainwashed crawling sycophant for the USA. You obviously have a lot in common with your inglorious PM who worships on bended knee at the Washington cabal.
Re: Good Poodle!
Total arrogant nonsense so typical of the warmongering USA. The legitimate government of a sovereign state (Ukraine) was deliberately destabilised by the illegal efforts of one Ms Nulland of the US State department who funded $5Billion to known terrorist thugs to shoot Ukraine policemen. The real reasons where 1) To threaten and annoy Russia. 2) To use the Ukraine as a launch pad for US weaponry all targeting Russia 3) To give free reign to Monsanto Chemicals to use Ukraine soil to experiment with their products on crops which elsewhere are banned.
You can if you are capable of joined up thought see the link between the US closing bases in the UK and Europe to save $500 million a year to the US spending just over 10 years savings on Ukraine not counting the cost to date to other counties who's economies have suffered due to the US bullying Europe to put sanctions on Russia. None of these sanctions affect the USA, its just another way that the US uses bullying tactics against legitimate business competition. When is the US going to repatriate Germany's gold reserves? or do they no longer exist as the US government have blown them on warmongering. When is the us going to return the 90 tonnes of Ukraine gold which they "lifted" in March 2014 and flew to New York.
You seem to be nothing more than a crawling sycophant for the USA and a bloody thick one at that.
I agree, but what it boils down to is the ridiculously flawed doctrine so beloved by duplicitous politicians, "My enemies enemy is my friend" wow has that been torn to shreds over the last 20 years.
After the illegal war in Iraq and the nonexistent WMD's it should have been change to my supposed friends are my enemies friends.
A very slippery slope to go down. No government has any right whatsoever to decide on what is acceptable for an individual should watch. Attempting to use flawed legislation introduced as a knee jerk reaction is always going to fail from mostly lack of respect. In todays overburdened legistaive nightmare of a world, the John Pilger photograph of the little Vietnamese girl on fire running up the road, would probably have been banned material by the Met Police and the government.
I have seen stills from the video and it is disgusting, but it also in its pictoral form sends two messages.
1. The "executioner" is sufficiently arrogant and brutal as not to care about the consequences.
2. This is the world like it or not that the West has helped to create by its heavy handed blind incursions into other countries. We are all of us partly culpable for creating the conditions that allowed this to happen.
