    I guess we have to mention adhering to international law in every briefing now that parliament decided they would break it in a very specific and limited way

    To me, "The National Cyber Force" just sounds like a naff 80s kids TV action show, with people in neon colours adopting power poses during the title sequence!!

    I'm sure they definitely won't be warrantlessly spying on they people they're supposed to be serving, policing speech, and posting propaganda. They already do this of course.

    More money to go after mean tweets or are they actually planning to prevent some terrorism for once?

    International law doesn’t actually exist. Its actually international treaties between Countries which can be changed at any time due to domestic laws are supreme to international treaties mentioned by the UK Supreme Court with Gina Miller case regarding Parliament, German Constitutional Court is supreme to EU treaties (laws) and even the EU have said their “laws” are supreme to the UN Charter. The EU has the largest tariffs (fine) in history ($5 billion) placed on them by the WTO in regarding with unfair advantage to Airbus with subsidies against USA aircraft manufacturers. Therefore the EU is not the ones to point fingers of blame in relation to breaking international treaties. The UK Government is protecting the people of Northern Ireland (UK) by using the internal market bill to send food to them because the EU has refused to add the UK to the third Country list meaning a ban of goods being imported into the EU from UK. This is because in the event of no free trade agreement according to the withdrawal agreement Northern Ireland remains in the EU single market and customs union against their consent to appease the protectionist block of the EU and Republic of Ireland. Maybe you should read more instead of silly comments about things you know nothing about.

    I guess the part I read in the linked gov.uk article that says international law is wrong too then, maybe you should take it up with them in a very specific and limited way.

    Does this mean the next Bond film will consist of nothing more than 90min of Maurice Moss sitting in-front of a PC.

    Hmm... welcome to the forum.
    Bit of an odd choice of words and sentiments for a first post, though... Sockpuppet account, or just not intending to ever return?

    when I was young and the internet was in its infancy virtually the only time you heard the word 'cyber' was in those old chat rooms where "wanna cyber" was the frequent request after a bit of small talk. I got images of that, but now adorned with Tron-like neon courtesy of your comment too.

    Re: UK government describes role of the National Cyber Force (NCF)

    The WTO just imposed $4 billion in fines on Boeing for the same thing:
    https://www.chicagotribune.com/busin...uty-story.html

    World Trade Organization arbitrators said Tuesday that the European Union can sanction up to $4 billion in U.S. goods over Washington’s illegal support for plane-maker Boeing.
    Its not shocking when you also consider Boeing has not delivered properly on many contracts,and still gets awarded them. Its even in US law,companies have a percentage overspend in various contracts allowed before the contract has to be cancelled.

    Plus at the state level so many companies get huge tax breaks,etc. The US government actually divides up its own aerospace contracts,to make sure each of its own large companies gets some sort of contract,to keep its companies ticking over as they are huge employers. It means smaller companies fight an uphill struggle to get a look in. Plus foreign companies are pushed to either have a local manufacturing partner or a local fully incorporated subsidary. TBF,this is what is done in a lot of countries too- people seem to not understand governments do want to keep high paying aerospace jobs in their own countries. They are all at it,just trying to fiddle with the laws,and use legal means to weasel out of things! Then they get caught - all are as bad as each other!

    Also Airbus employs a lot of people here. So does Bombardier until Boeing tried the same rubbish with Canada,and Airbus stepped in to back them up(total around 17000 for both and just for the aerospace part IIRC).

    I think it was corn that they needed and didn't get sent due to the rich buffoons prioritising their wallets over people's lives. It would be like millionaires/billionaires lobbying for a political act that favours them while leaving the vast majority worse off and the ruling elite going along with it for their own selfish gain. History, repetition, tick.

    @567

    Why is there stupid misleading/lying brexit politics being pushed by a clear right wing and anti EU agenda posting sock puppet account on a tech site ?

    All I have to say is good luck with that US trade deal now that Irish Joe Biden will be president, he'll have none of your xenophobia, blatant racism and lies, break the Good Friday Agreement and nothing will be the same again, no matter what way you want to spew out your anti EU and anti Irish propaganda, nobody will take the UK seriously on any deal ever again, you'll be out in the cold and on your own forever.

    Also, Northern Ireland did NOT vote for brexit, neither did Scotland.

    Ireland still happily accepting UK immigrants trying to escape away from the so called right wing "ruling class elite" politicians who constantly push there divisive politics and propaganda.

    We don't care what country you are from, so long as you're not a sap.
