Why this Blog?

A place where I can lament the changing times; for eccentric comments on current affairs and for unfashionable views, expressed I hope, in cogent style; also occasional cris de coeur largely concerned, I regret to say, with myself.


I welcome your comments, so do please write. Please note however that all comments are moderated prior to publication. Whilst I fully appreciate that life can be frustrating, nevertheless, abuse, SMS language and illiteracy will not be tolerated!

You Couldn't Make it up!

This is unbelievable.

A bloke bought a secondhand Nikon Coolpix camera on ebay for $31.

On downloading his holiday snaps, he found some extra images: these came from MI6 - the British Secret Intelligence Service (fictionally James Bond's stamping ground). There were names and details of Al Quaeda cells, information about an MI6 computer system, fingerprints and so on.

I have written here before about surveillance in the UK - and also I have pointed out how leaky the British system is.

Obviously the British Government has decided to ignore my various warnings!

Until the next time
