The Big Data ploy that brought about the #Brexitrumpocalypse

This piece of investigative journalism reads like the script for the next James Bond film. It has MI6, Greedy Hedge Funds bankers, the placing of a despot to head the most powerful nation on earth and the most stupid decision the subjects of HRM QEII have ever made. I'm not sure even Ian Rankin would have managed to write a more twisted and intricate plot.

Of course reality doesn't have lovable spies who single-handedly bring down a whole terrorist organisation, reality has the bad guys winning (in some places) exploiting the flaws of the electoral and legal systems to their advantage. We could do with our own Zero Zero Hate though 🙂

Oh and Facebook …. yeah just don't do Facebook
