Let's print the "Downing Street Memos" and we will see these 2 British pukes run for the Scottish hills!

There is an obligation to report wrongdoing and waste in government., even when they say that operative’s lives are at risk, and adversaries are rubbing their hands with glee, al-Qaeda is lapping it up. I've told these numbskulls a million times not to exaggerate.


yeah ... more like ....

The only thing Snowden's evidence is damaging is the advance of the NWO and police state agendas. Which NONE OF US WANT FROM YOU BARBARIANS.

They keep on about needles in haystacks , conclusion stop building haystacks and keep your needles in a safe place.

Snowden leaks shows the extent of illegal snooping by govt agencies, and Britains jobs worth Andrew Parker is only making the situation worse by saying that "Snowdens leaks damaging". Mr Parker you are in a hole and the best advice to you is to stop digging,

Snowden thought he finally got some dirt on these superiors that would make him look good. The surveillance he was snooping on was legitimate surveillance needed to protect national security. He acted like an ACLU hack, blatantly violated his oath and will be prosecuted.

Given that something the scope of all of this, one would assume that it would be impossible to believe that it would not all come out at some point, especially with all the fraud in London, so what was all of these guys' plan when it did? Were they going to pretend that they have the high road when it comes to stealing peoples' intellectual property? Seriously are they not having some other phone hacking scandal involving the police in the UK?

34 terrorist attacks thwarted in the UK, amazing, wasn't that exactly the same number that the NSA stated they'd stopped in the US also?

Sir Iain Lobban, if you don't mind!

He was knited with the highest possible decorations for a non-military servant of Her Majesty this year. He now should appear dragging a funny long blue robe decorated with gold thread, and an even funnier hat as:

"A Knight of the Most Distinguished Order of Saint Michael and Saint George."

He must have rode to Westminster on a horse with a jost in his right hand, and feathers hanging from his extremeties.

Andrew Parker, the MI5 Cheif is Mister Parker. He could have arrived at Westminister on a vegetable cart surrounded by sacks of rotting vegetables and fruits, or not!

I wouldn't know better if it wasn't for channels like RT.


Its quite a challenge to get anywhere never the truth nowadays. I see the main stream media in the UK and US presented in two ways. The BBC in its current incarnation as a mothering news channel or Fear mongering with the likes of Sky. Most channels focus on the Fear mongering!

So the UK officially admits that it is a police state.


Its not just a police state, The aim of the five eyes (Canada, Australia, New Zealand, UK and US) is what Mussolini called "corporatism&qu ot; the merger of Nationalist State and Corporate enterprise or corporate fascism!!

Its time to give money to the english homeless intead of playing a little part in the current spying events.


What money exactly! If you take UK public borrowing and combine it with personal debt. The staggering amount that the UK owes is 508% of its economy. It owes 5 times its entire economy in debt. The UK is insolvent, The just have a very good PR machine that tries to convince the rest of the world that its is solvent and a good investment. The only countries worse are the US and Japan in that order

BBC=Baseless Bulls h!t Conveyer .


I remember in the run up to the iraq war the BBC vehemently opposed Bush and Blair's fabricated war. Since them the notion of any independent reporting at the BBC has been suppressed by governmental intervention. With the exception of the Independent, Guardian all other media is in collusion with Business and government.


Carlos 07.11.2013 22:37

Staged lies from Professional liars to a panel in collusion with the liars!!!The British government and its so called ministries of disinformation along with their five eyes counterparts are a disgrace. They trample on the aspiration of many trying to make this planet a better world in which to live. It is not about terrorism (apart from their own). Its about corporate, economic and political global dominance. Every nation that still seeks their independence should oppose these nations with every fibre of their being!!!

The caption is laughable- think NANO technology public not this propaganda that somehow listening to cell phones or tapping the internet is high tech- good grief.
Where is this NANO tech- in you home -on the streets - in all buildings public and private- time to wake sleeping beauties
