For a long period of time there has been a disconnect between our politicians and their electorate. I think governments are worried because they wioll be seen clearly acting against the wishes and possibly the interests of the people they are supposed to serve. Which is why they are now running around screaming the sky is falling the sky is falling. I am looking forward to seeing how the British government responded to Operation Cast Lead, particularly as the polls were showing the majority of Britons were against it. If these leaks concentrate the minds of politicians all well and good.
