I heard Hauge speak earlier, and I have never been more ashamed of my government in my life. My grandfathers, and thier entire generation, fought, killed and died to prevent people from ever making a statement like that to OUR people, and to end the reign of people who would use that sort of speech in Europe.

And now, lo and behold, the government of my nation, a nation which was staunchly steadfast against the Nazis, is now using thier own playbook against its people. This is a bloody farce, or at least, it would be if it wasnt so damned WRONG.

This is feigned surprise.
What happens is the US spies on foreign nations and foreign nations spy on the US. Then they share what they find. I thought this was pretty well known.

But since this is making headline news now and the foreign governments know their people are gonna realize the US is keeping tabs on them those governments have to act outraged. In reality this is all according to plan.

The last person who was anywhere near parliament who had a chance of doing the right thing, was Guy Fawkes. I am pretty sure that you cannot technically be British unless you know that.

And where the current choices for political parties and candidates are concerned, I really havent time for any of them.They all desire power, more than they have the capacity to actually understand the position they are supposed to hold.

A governments job is not to lead a nation, nor is its Prime Minister or President supposed to dictate the way thier administration behaves. It is a governments job to enact the will of the people, and if it fails to do so, it is not doing its job correctly.

But there is some distance between failing to do ones job correctly, and using the position one is in to scupper our rights to freedom and privacy.
