LONDON: Britain intercepted phone calls and monitored computers used by officials taking part in two high-level international finance meetings in London in 2009, a British newspaper said on Sunday.
The Guardian said some delegates from countries in the Group of 20 – which comprises top economies around the world – used Internet cafes that had been set up by British intelligence agencies to read their emails.
The report was published hours before leaders of the Group of Eight countries – all of which are in the G20 – start a two-day summit in Northern Ireland.

Not going to lie, but I often wonder what goes on behind those closed doors with some of the richest and influential people in the world. But to condone that and try to uphold our right to privacy is being a hypocrite, then again it IS in another country....
Lets just reflect on that. Why should we assume that those countries, or rather their representatives that were being spied on should have been ignorant of what is now a fact to us plebs? This is the G20 we are talking about. Makes no sense does it?

Really? Do you think other countries do not spy on diplomats while they visit their country?
