I’m amazed that no-one at the beeb has made the connection between Panorama’s revelations and Wikileaks.

The plain truth is that there can be no case for suppressing evidence of corrupt practice, particularly when the guilty parties are involved in a current decision.

I smell a large potential rodent. “Genuine” “cybercrooks” and malware sites are distressingly competent. This sounds incompetent. More like the kind of site an authoritarian might request if they wanted to garner support for kiddie controls – which can, of course, easily be morphed into adult controls…
