[quote name='Pan_a_sonic' time='28.10.2013 13:53']I could imagine Germany following America into the third world, because all their gold is in America,

Germany took her gold home last year.

British tabloids are not real press?! They are a nation of servants to the Queen and not citizens...

  


Yes. But the Queen guarantees the safety of Her Subjects any where in the world.

I could imagine Germany following America into the third world, because all their gold is in America, they are spied upon and their trade secrets are being sold on, and they will never leave NATO. They are only upset because Americans aren't operating in an overt fashion.

Good article Ms Machon but ust wondering why there are no trumped up charges against you with threats of extradition to the US like those of Julian Assange and Ed Sonwden.

....... Stop giving them our tacit approval to govern us BADLY!! DO NOT COMPLY!!

  

I think you make a good point, but am not sure what you mean by "do not comply"? Do you want people to refuse to pay their taxes, rise up in violent revolution or write an open letter of disapproval...?

.. .You don't think they have the capabilities and resources to spy on everyone, regardless of their social status?!...

  


Well that's definitely not what he said.

At least if your phone is being tapped you must have some importance in society

At least if your phone is being tapped you must have some importance in society . Those who are not being tap must feel very let down. I think the Americans ought to tell us who is being tap it could be quite a status symbol. I do hope I am being tapped !

The UK is simply a seriously bent state, where black is white, and white is black, the lie is the truth and the truth is a lie.

There is only one peaceful way,and we all know what is,
no one wants to be the first to do it,some of us don't have the balls ,some of us are just too plain 'ol stupid , too old, or too young,but the rest of us know ,and yet we sit by quietly day after day,and play the waiting game. do we really need to see how bad it can get before we act? Stop giving them our tacit approval to govern us BADLY!! DO NOT COMPLY!!

[quote name='Roxy Chick' time='27.10.2013 18:11']What do you expect

This commentator seems obsessed with the blacks and colour prejudice. There are more important things to worry about than the colour of someones skin.

 

jack smith 27.10.2013 18:36

when you have a computer network designed to read and record all communications, I would think it would be easy to infect such an infrastructure with viruses.

 

Roxy Chick 27.10.2013 18:11

What do you expect from the british they so scared of tearing themselves away from the blacks and promoting those who bring money and business into their countries! The british are way too stupid to recognise anyone else they are too far up the black community literally 'black' nosing them they are too scared of them and now are too scared to admit they have been 'black' nosing obama's black b-u-m also! The british are racist and offensive to everyone except the black community the truth should come out about the british making them look weak for a change!

RT: what is with all these internet scam comments, they should be deleted.

I like the truth. I like this article, and world leaders have just been playing dumb... as if they didn't know it, since forever!...

Take me back to the 70s and 80s of the workshop floors to the days of just modems in the office to wait to see what orders were arriving from the national coal board, then the culling of jobs in our industry 84/85:(! (progressing to 96 was the year uk paid of its wartime lend and lease debt back to USA. Yet now Securty is crucial in the midst of terror times -sadly a lot of it has gone so very wrong.

I am pleased that a senior political person has been a victim of NSA surveillance. This is because, the people have very little immediate power to curtail the illegal activity, whereas when the sting is felt by persons like Madame Merkel, the potential for a serious backlash is great. The Americans should understand that the majority are not happy with what they are doing; the minority can stop them.
