AH yes British telecom ,1970s Britain riddled with strikes BT comes forth and says we have just sold a telecoms system to Tehran hooray ,what they did not tell the public was that every call in every location down to the phones in the street were traceable and all calls could be recorded ,a lot of people died and or disappeared when that system was put in !
How far do you think they got since then ?
