Showing our true character?

Last week GCHQ was censored over its sharing of internet surveillance data with the United States. There’s no real surprise here. But what is interesting is to read it in the context of the New Statesman’s feature last week about growing political interest in the “Anglosphere” – a global alliance of English speaking countries.  

I am reminded of Bill Hayden’s observation from Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy “I still believe the secret services are the only real expression of a nation’s character”.
