To be fair, they have attempted to pretend they thwarted other attacks.

They also claim the data is used to attack organised clime. There is no evidence of success there either.

In fact, there is considerable evidence that they have no idea how to use the data in any meaningful way. Perhaps they should hire the people targetting online adverts to manage the data. Oh, wait ...

. I know people think Capitalism is some natural law,

Not sure what you think capitalism actually is, but I would bet a lot of anything that if I spent a few hours making a shovel, I could shovel a heap more shite in the next week than you could with your bare hands.

You might find it worth paying me to shovel your shite, or buy a shovel from me.

You and your mates might, over a period of years, be happy to support me while a build a power shovel, and shovel a load of other stuff too - maybe dig a ditch or two to save the village from flooding when it rains?

Perhaps you are a capitalist after all?

Or do you have another definition of capitalism in mind? - like it is when anyone can buy anything if they can pay for it, regardless of race, sex, or criminal record? Yep, Apartheid and Naziism are not capitalism.

There is no chance of discovering a Buddhist monastery tucked behind a thicket

I think I have checked behind every thicket in East London, and not a Buddhist monastery to be seen at all.

However, there are loads of buses and trains.

We don't need Al Quaida to terrorise us in London - we have traffic Wardens.
