If Variety is the Spice of Life, are New Opportunities Created
That new speculative collaborative team venture involving/revolving around Iran’s Information Technology Organization (ITO), a government agency charged with developing policy related to data networks and digital services, and Rostec, Russia’s massive conglomerate of science and technology companies, many of them focussed on defence or industrial application, will be of great interest to any and all who would also be finding the London Tech Bridge attractively appealing …… but disappointingly uninterested and disengaging in matters peculiarly strange and particularly contentious and practically disruptive and/or virtually creative.
That’s bound to create a novel competitive environment which is sure to drive excellence to perform its strange things in search of satisfying perfection and thus is undoubtedly worthy of positive engagement and every possible support …… 🙂 which in the very simplest and immediately most effective of staple traditional and conventional forms is a handing over of a stash of flash cash/fiat bank money transfer to agents of interest and concern in an easily universally recognised show of the strength of gratitude for one’s interest and concern for their success and progress too in an vast emerging array of very strange things of great future importance.
And there’s surely bound to quite a few more of those types of positive pan national collaborative operations with both state and non-state actors engaged and highly ACTive in novel ground and mould-breaking roles ….. with some, who can be more than just a misguided and misguiding few, assuming a contrary and opposing position leading them into the clutches of dark webs of intrigue and despair on the wild wacky wicked side of life. Take a walk there guarantees one doesn’t have one’s sorrows to seek for they are generously provided …. so beware, take care and be aware. Forewarned is forearmed.

Re: Only the Guilty?
As only the guilty have anything to fear, I presume that Messrs Levy and Robinson would have no issue with me having a browse through the contents of their phones? …. Roj Blake
One imagines that MPs are terrified of what would be found out about them and their proposing shenanigans should their WhatsApp and Signal and Telegram communications be monitored rather than their being granted an immunity/exemption from snooping by the UK’s own Secret and Security Services.
Many would tell you they should be at the top of any leading list of likely candidates to be victimised by errant abuse and misuse of that very particular and peculiar privilege.
One wonders what MI5/MI6/GCHQ really think of that arrangement if it so easily and quickly can lead to wholesale chaos with parties in conflict and opposition. Common sense and a greater wisdom would dictate that they totally ignore the prohibition and discover all that is necessary for a true picture of events be produced and directed for subsequent daily media presentation and virtual realisation.
