1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    Darroch should have written something like "It's all gone a bit EastEnders". Trump would have no idea what he was talking about!

    Surprise, surprise. Brexit Barbie and Mr. Sunbed-Tice are humping each other and the pair of them are humping the country. She makes public the stolen files damning a public servant and he puts himself forward as the victim’s replacement. The utterly corrupt Brexit Company.
    Meanwhile, it’s looking like the culprit has been identified already.

    There is an interesting typo in your first para above where you use "publics interest" rather than the correct term "public interest". However regardless of your opinion, the police do have a duty to investigate where material covered by any level of government classification has been published without the required authority. If they find grounds for a prosecution, this may then lead to a prosecution. Then for a court to decide, not you or me.

    BTW I signed the relevant section statement for the old OSA rather longer ago than 30 years. And one reason there has been a delay in my writing my next 'biography' webpage (covering the late 1990s) is that I've been working out what I can mention and what I can't. The bulk of my research work at the time was MoD funded and I was essentially 'rented out' to them by my old Uni.

    I appreciate the leaks may sell newspapers and titilate some readers. But that is quite different to the 'National Interest' in terms of the OSA, document classification and control, etc.

    Maybe the replacement Ambassador should be a Scot. They can then use broad Scots language. Many useful terms like 'scunner', 'guddle', etc, etc, that the White House might find hard to really appreciate. :)

    The job applicant for Ambassador to Washington is the same colour as Trump,

    Worth posting this image again from Trump's visit to his Turnberry golf resort...

    ...possibly not ambassadorial, but highly accurate and no OSA required.

    A message has no information content if it is what professional comms specialists refer to as "the bleedin' obvious". :) Hence since no information was actually 'disclosed' by the banner, the OSA probably wouldn't get used.

    BTW that might be an interesting defence in the case we're discussing. :)

    Nobody banged up yet though. Lots of other distracting news. Trump now is an obvious racist. Boris blames Islam for woes of the world. Apparently someone thinks some Labour members may be a little bit anti-semitic, sometimes, perhaps, allegedly. Just sweep this next PM may have engineered leak of diplomatic cables under the carpet here... ...LOOK, CRICKET, TENNIS, LYCRA ON BIKES...

    TraitorGate, day 10. Plod still unable to finger perpetrator. Whitehall enquiry silent.

    Who is attempting to manipulate Government by means most foul? Is it our cold war adversaries? Fifth column? The backers of the gulumphing blonde buffoon?

    Will we ever know?

    Why is this a problem? After all we forgot about Gavin Williamson riding a horse and cart through the OSA 5 minutes after the useless berk did it.
    They're tories/Brexil plk/fascists, lets get back to smearing Corbyn.
