An entirely stupid piece. Yes, you’ve guessed where.
However, it’s actually extremely encouraging. Read the comments. There are 35 or so as I write. Absolutely all of them are asking “what the fuck are you talking about?”.
Glenny’s point, such as it is, is that if we leave the EU then we’ll all be trampled by cybercrime. Only Brussels can protect us. It’s not so much that this isn’t a serious contention (which of course it is not) but that even the readers of The Guardian can see how ludicrous it is.
My own addition was this:
This is truly fascinating:
“In October that year the FBI, working with Britain’s Serious Organised Crime Agency (Soca) and other European police forces, succeeded in closing down the DarkMarket website. ”
The police forces and intelligence agencies of sovereign nations successfully cooperate to close down a multi-national criminal enterprise.
This proves that we cannot rely upon the police forces and intelligence agencies of sovereign nations to successfully cooperate to close down multi-national criminal enterprises.
Next week Mr. Glenny uses the same logic to show that because water is wet we must all have a bath to get dry.
