    And that's how we like it, thanks, says gov

    Why doesn't this surprise me? :rolleyes:


    "The UK government says it isn't exercising any control over the sale of surveillance software nor stopping it from finding its way into the hands of repressive regimes.

    At the start of the month, Lord David Alton of Liverpool called on the Coalition to ban the export of espionage software and equipment, and questioned previous sales of UK software to Iran and Yemen." ~ The Register

    The way they treat this is "if we don't, someone else will, so we might aswell make a buck from it."
