    I have been gently chided for not giving my reactions to the SNP conference, which I attended as a delegate. Nicola’s major speech was very good. The media universally attempted to characterise it as kicking a new Independence referendum into the long grass. I did not hear it that way at all.

    The Times claims to have identified the Kremlin’s latest secret weapon in Cyberwars – “Bikini Girl” @Organicerica.

The Times claims this is proven by the timing and regularity of the postings […] The post Bikini Girls and Cyberwars appeared first on Craig Murray. […]
