Britain and Sweden — Obama’s European bitches

So Britain, disingenuous towards its people all the way, and Sweden (Obama’s other European bitch), have vetoed EU/US talks about espionage. All they can talk about is privacy.

Slowly and quietly, NSA and GCHQ spying on innocent people as part of dragnet data gathering and hoarding is being buried. What will emerge is that the two agencies simply gather targeted meta data — and that’s not so bad, is it?

The European super state, which makes the laws by which we live, is not apparently competent to discuss the surveillance by which we are monitored. This is nothing short of technical legal chicanery by the same European partnership that is colluding to deliver Assange to Obama.

Personally I am fed up with being lied to and misled by the politicians we all pay to protect us. Consider this: if government used the same risk-based security that everyone else uses, all anti-terror surveillance would be abandoned and the money diverted to road safety and better designed kitchens.

If we now listen to and believe this duplicity from the British and Swedish governments, then we are colluding in the establishment of an Orwellian police super state. We are being lied to and deceived.

    While politicians of all countries need and deserve a good roasting for their complicity here, I’m not sure I can blame them entirely. As the world’s #1 economy and sole superpower, the US has its boot hovering above the neck of pretty much every smaller country and the Wikileaks cables showed us they’re not above lowering that foot even on minor points of diplomacy. In this world you are indeed either a complicit ally or a pariah state like Venezuela and Iran; there’s not much in between.
