The truth is that without the bravery and professionalism of two serving police officers who have blown the whistle on state snooping I would know nothing about my files, and those of other campaigners, being shredded by the Domestic Extremism Unit.

msn published from the Guardian article on 26 March 2017:
The police don’t always act as neutral agents of the law.
And the World Socialist Website published on 15 April 2017:
“The letter reveals that through the hacking, Scotland Yard has illegally accessed the email accounts of activists for many years, and this was possible due to help from “counterparts in India.”
The letter alleged that the Metropolitan Police had asked police in India to obtain passwords on their behalf—a job that the Indian police subcontracted out to groups of hackers in India.”
Do I owe it to Indian hackers that two critical folders of emails disappeared from my computer and the skype archives on the computer of a friend of mine?
Am I an ‘extremist’ because I gave a voice to children and their allegations?
