About this spying business...

One of the things I'm finding odd is that everyone's pointing the finger at MI5/6 and saying 'oooooooh bad people' as a result of Clare Short's interview yesterday.

The wierd thing is, when she was interviewed on Channel 4 news, she seemed to be deliberately holding back from saying that it was British intelligence that had prepared the report. The report had been obtained, and she saw it, if I remember correctly.

Anyway, it's fascinating stuff, and it's currently available to watch online.

(Jon Snow does a great job of not saying 'coo really blimey gosh'.)

What, you mean you don't want to pay UKP 5 per month for the privilege?!
Actually, this content used to be free till a few months ago - you could get the whole of C4 News online, every day, albeit only at low (56K) quality RealPlayer format. They recently started encoding at higher data rates, and C4 (NOT C4 News/ITN) decided that it would be an ideal time to introduce the concept of payment to their audience.
Cue predictable massive drop-off in worldwide views.
I did argue against this, by the way, but was ignored.
