Meanwhile in America, it’s PATRIOTic to wiretap. We trample on your democratic rights here all the time with gay abandon, no problemo. Except… it would be more proper if the U.S. government and corporations involved were to resign voluntarily over this. Instead they’d rather risk facing mortal penalties.

On the contrary, we should actually be pleasantly surprised if we had an administration which showed some moral fibre and did not stoop to such low ;levels.

One can but laugh at the opposition demand for a JPC. Who in this country believes anything constructive will emerge from it?
