“But I’ve got nothing to hide.”

The development of ToTok, experts said, showed that the [governments of Persian Gulf nations like Saudi Arabia, the Emirates and Qatar] can cut out the intermediary to spy directly on their targets, who voluntarily, if unwittingly, hand over their information.

It’s incredible how much negligence, bad decision-making, & in this case, loss of life that it takes to get fired when you’re a CEO of a big American company.

Zac Goldsmith, what a story. Son of humble billionaire, at 23 made editor of a magazine (owned by his uncle), gets Tory nom for leafy London seat at 32, loses the seat twice in 3 years, (also losing London mayoral race). Elevated to the House of Lords. Truly, the British dream.
