Earlier today politicians said that tired out line "If you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear."

Even more ironic when you take in to account that the government are trying to prevent the details of the overhaul of the NHS from being published.

"There was no WiFi signal when on the desk in front of the window in my room, but after some experiments, I discovered that the signal was quite good... on the ceiling of the bathroom," emailed Marc Petit-Huguenin.

I don't buy it.
