Cameron orders pulverisation of Guardian hard disks

UK Prime Minister Was Behind Guardian’s Hard Disk “Pulverization”

You know it’s bad when Russia accuses Britain of breaking human-rights and freed-of-the-press declarations, but that is what it has done following the revelations that the UK Prime Minister Cameron was behind the decision to ‘pulverize’ The Guardian’s hard-drives in an effort to suppress more leaks. As Reuters reports, two sources with direct knowledge confirm Cameron ordered his top civil servant to “deal with this matter.” Falling back on the old playbook, the government defends its actions on the basis of ‘threatening national security’, and adds, “we won’t go into specific cases but if highly sensitive information was being held insecurely we have a responsibility to secure it,” with regard the ‘pulverization’.

Via Reuters,

British Prime Minister David Cameron ordered his top civil servant to try to stop revelations flowing from the Guardian newspaper about U.S. and British surveillance programs, two sources with direct knowledge of the matter said.
News that Cabinet Secretary Jeremy Heywood had contacted the Guardian drags Cameron into a storm over Britain’s response to media coverage of secrets leaked by fugitive U.S. intelligence contractor Edward Snowden.

The sources named the official as Heywood, who is Cameron’s most senior policy adviser. “The prime minister asked the Cabinet Secretary to deal with this matter, that’s true,” one source told Reuters.
Government supporters say information leaked by Snowden, who has obtained asylum in Russia, could threaten national security. However, rights groups have accused the government of an assault on press freedom over a series of incidents.

A Downing Street spokeswoman said: “We won’t go into specific cases but if highly sensitive information was being held insecurely we have a responsibility to secure it.”

It has argued that these were operational security matters.

    Ridiculous. The US media has been broadcasting everything that Greenwald and the Guardian have exposed 24/7 for weeks now. They seemingly can’t get enough of Greenwald and his “traitorous” buddies. The media doesn’t let anything slip through unless the elite want it to slip through. This is just pure posturing on Cameron’s part. They’re all in on it together.

    All the jew luvvies in Parliament need clearing out and we need to start from afresh. The corruption in government has gone too far.

    Instead of waiting 4 years to sack these scum (through elections), how about the same principle of people in other jobs where you get your P45 on the Friday and goodbye.

    Politicians serve the public – not the other way round. Take your power back or they will continually take it from you.

    The Russian president

    Putin on Minority Rights:
    August 6, 2013

    February 4th, 2013, Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, addressed the Duma, (Russian Parliament), and gave a speech about the tensions with minorities in Russia:

    “In Russia live Russians. Any minority, from anywhere, if it wants to live in Russia, to work and eat in Russia, should speak Russian, and should respect the Russian laws. If they prefer Sharia Law, then we advise them to go to those places where that’s the state law. Russia does not need minorities. Minorities need Russia, and we will not grant them special privileges, or try to change our laws to fit their desires, no matter how loud they yell ‘discrimination’. We better learn from the suicides of America, England, Holland and France, if we are to survive as a nation. The Russian customs and traditions are not compatible with the lack of culture or the primitive ways of most minorities. When this honorable legislative body thinks of creating new laws, it should have in mind the national interest first, observing that the minorities are not Russians.”

    The politicians in the Duma gave Putin a five minute standing ovation. –
