I had assumed that Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon would have taken it as a given that GCHQ and NSA are spying on everything she does, just as they do Angela Merkel and Francois Hollande, Jeremy Corbyn and Diane Abbott, and the rest of us. No one in The SNP gotten round to watch Citizen Four yet?
Time for the left to stop pretending this industrial scale surveillance by the Intelligence Agencies doesn’t really matter. Of course it does.
BBC, SKY News and Channel4 News headbangers (aka ‘editors’) want their viewers, the voters, to reason that if we have nothing to hide, what’s the big problem? That is the most disgusting attitude I can think of. In the first place, if David Cameron and Theresa May have nothing to hide, then when do I get to install cameras and microphones at 10 Downing Street and the bedroom of state rapists like Bob Lambert. 24-7 surveillance for the Prime Minister and Home Secretary? Just in case either of them is caught taking bribes from Rupert Murdoch or conspiring with Andy Coulson to commit perjury to protect a network of Bob Lambert type state rapists in the Scottish Socialist Party’s national executive committee.
What this illegal spying on politicians at every level of government all across the world is really about is getting information on absolutely everything, including the most irrelevant, but quite embarrassing trivia that is entirely personal, stuff that taken out of context can look bad, but that is no more than David Cameron and President Obama get up to, in fact considerably less important.
All this illegal surveillance can then be exploited by Theresa May and David Cameron to trick whistle-blowers, investigative journalists, crusading MPs, civil rights lawyers, judges, civil servants, government ministers etc to commit a little white lie, to do so under oath. And that is then used to persecute/prosecute, frame, entrap, blackmail or imprison someone/anyone, utterly discrediting the source of truly earth-shattering revelations.
What kind of revelations?
David Cameron’s 24% dictatorship is weak. It is unpopular apart from the Tory liars who pollute the television studios. Time for the left to stop pussyfooting when it comes to this criminal activity by GCHQ. All of the left from across the political parties have to raise this destruction of our most basic human rights and democracy to the very top of our political agenda. Hope that’s clear.
