Comment Re:Russia Playing Catch Up To Corporations (Score 0) 106

I'm no fan of May's government, and I tend to agree about the (lack of) mandate. I think there should have been a general election when Cameron resigned. However, my definition of a dictatorship, is, no elections, no opposition party, no independent judiciary. Think, Hitler, Mussolini, Peron, Stalin, Pol Pot etc. We're not there yet.

Paranoid much!! I'm not allowed to take a phone/camera into testing facilities, server rooms etc to stop accidental/deliberate leakage of customer data. This seems to me like an obvious step any government with half a brain between them would take to secure meetings such as this. No need to invoke the OTT 'authoritarian/dictator' rhetoric. Get real

My god ... you have a short memory The Bologna massacre (Italian: strage di Bologna) was a terrorist bombing of the Central Station at Bologna, Italy, on the morning of 2 August 1980, which killed 85 people and wounded more than 200. The attack was carried by the neo-fascist terrorist organization Nuclei Armati Rivoluzionari (which always denied any involvement); other theories have been proposed, especially in correlation with the strategy of tension.
