Still in transition - I could tell stories of the criminal activity of large corporations - but I couldn't resist a Hoon quote:
"Transport secretary Geoff Hoon said last night that if the government is not able to harvest details of all internet communications, society will have granted terrorists a licence to kill.

Appearing on BBC One's Question Time, the journeyman minister was asked by Liberal Democrat MP and fellow panellist Julia Goldsworthy how far the government is willing to go undermine civil liberties to monitor extremists. An irritated Hoon snapped: 'To stop terrorists killing people in our society quite a long way, actually.'"

Bibi's thank-you card is no doubt in the mail.
