Its seems the National Security Agency and GCHQ are still sharing tech with Australia rather than just the raw product been offered.

“Carriers should deny boarding. This individual is highly likely to be refused entry to the UK.”

Strange how the UK gov can be so fixated of this issue with Mr Snowden’s photograph, passport number and date of birth…

after its years of uncontrolled immigration paperwork and many working “students”.

The G8 summit will move past Enniskillen, Northern Ireland seeing business from their car windows.

The shuttered businesses are been given large stickers hoping to disguise the empty sites.

Enjoy the “brilliant advertisement”.

Recall the old joke about East Germany, buildings were painted to just over the first floor, all that could be seen from the backseat of Erich Honecker’s limousine.

An anonymised mobile phone usage data package came with a nice bit of info:  your location down to ~100 metres.

The data was all anonymised, aggregated-  just dont think too much about the 100m part.

More reports on the UK  role in detention facility H1, the SAS, CIA, a death and a wonderful new Justice and Security Bill to make it all go away with the help of MI5.

Don’t worry “core” police functions still get a real sworn officers.

Investigating crimes, “detaining” suspects, working to bring cases, caring for victims and witnesses, securing high-risk individuals, intelligence, PR, aspects of forensics, legal services,cells and computer systems might all be offered under privatisation deals.
