"As long as He has not disclosed specific intelligence....like Wikileaks"
It was newspapers such as the Guardian that actually published the Wikileaks info (until the Guardian double-crossed Assange, possibly because he let them know he wasn't happy that they didn't publish stuff relating to Israel).

"You must be a public sector apologist"

Dear user - your data really is in the clouds
"I want my money back. Otherwise, it is simply tantamount to theft"
You will get more sympathy if you claim it was a stealth tax - the downside is that you would have to admit it was a stealth tax on the stupid. But hey, you may get your £30 back.
Which is worse?

Another stupid moron
Not so long ago the real terroists with real explosives (Semtex etc) were white, and spoke with distinctive accents. They are raising their heads again in Northern Ireland. Tell me, do you support helfire missiles being fired at their houses? If not, why not?

Single party state
"But who is a genuine 3rd party? " - we need a genuine 2nd party first. One that is not beholden to corporate lobbyists. And remember that the Goatse guy is a politician who deals with the US.
