"MI5 spying on Corbyn? HHAHA never, put yer tin foil hat back on"

Snowden finally exploded the myth of the tin foil hat. McCluskey was the butt of a billion jokes, even from my MP, yesterday. They're the ones that need to get a bit more paranoid.

"The cheap-as-chips sportswear company has an 800,000 square foot warehouse at Shirebrook, on the site of a coal mine that shut in 1993. It has been described as a Victorian workhouse, a gulag."

Theresa May SAYS:

"If we are going to have an economy that works for everyone, we are going to need to give people more control of their lives. And that means cutting out all the political platitudes about “stakeholder societies” – and doing something radical.
Because as we saw when Cadbury’s – that great Birmingham company – was bought by Kraft, or when AstraZeneca was almost sold to Pfizer, transient shareholders – who are mostly companies investing other people’s money – are not the only people with an interest when firms are sold or close. Workers have a stake, local communities have a stake, and often the whole country has a stake. It is hard to think of an industry of greater strategic importance to Britain than its pharmaceutical industry, and AstraZeneca is one of the jewels in its crown. Yet two years ago the Government almost allowed AstraZeneca to be sold to Pfizer, the US company with a track record of asset stripping and whose self-confessed attraction to the deal was to avoid tax. A proper industrial strategy wouldn’t automatically stop the sale of British firms to foreign ones, but it should be capable of stepping in to defend a sector that is as important as pharmaceuticals is to Britain."

Theressa May DOES:

Allows sale of Global leader in low powered CPU design to Japanese company renowned for asset stripping.

UK Media not interested. Farewell Acorn RISC Machines. We didn't want that GDP revenue anyway.

I know its a DM link, but not many places are running this story, not even the Guardian, where he has his own column.

Mark Lawson (Arts chap) sacked from the BBC after 16 years.
Franz Kafka's novel The Trial features a bank clerk - like Mark Lawson - who is dragged through a legal system and who has to defend himself against criminal charges, writes GUY ADAMS.
