"C" Comes Out Of the Closet

"C", as in the chief of the British intelligence agency known as MI6. His name is John Sawers and he gave a public speech. His main point apparently was that secrecy is a good thing and that the sheeple Britons should not ever question what MI6 does.

He also said that MI6 does not torture people, but hey, if someone else does, he'll be shocked, shocked to discover that the Moroccans or the Egyptians or the Jordanians torture people. And if they then pass torture-derived intel to MI6, well, that's just peachy.

Note also that the British cops received extra authority to stop and first anyone they damn well pleased in order to combat terrorism. They have done that to 101,000 people and come up with nothing.
