Polite request: Executive summary please for those of us too old and stupid for reddit and/or in a hurry.
Aaron Banks personal messages on twitter (i.e. his private ones) were hacked, and are currently being spread across the internet.

Apparently the file containing the messages is a couple of gb.

Going to take a while to sort through all that.

Any exciting highlights from the messages? Was it Dear Vlad, thanks for all the cash, Plan A is now in motion? Or was it Hi mate, had a long day, see you in the pub at six? Something in between?

Interesting - is this where the resident pearl clutchers huff and puff and come over all sanctimonious because, of course, everybody is entitled to equal protection from the law and it is outrageous that someone's private correspondence has been hacked or are double standards only deplorable when exhibited by opponentssmile?

At this point, something in between. A fair bit of anti-semitic stuff "There are good Jews and bad Jews, and then there's George Soros", some stuff about "Northern monkeys" which may have been faked, and various dodgy looking comms with people like George Galloway and Dominic Raab which don't add up to a whole lot IMO.

Galloway begging for money, and Patel and Gove meeting him for lunches. Also some interesting insights on Trump: "insane". Also an email in his contacts of "bustycarroll".

Its going to be hours if not days for it all to be worked through.

And they've had that twitter leak account shut down now.

But too late to stop people reading it and analysing it:

If (I say if) any of the stuff reveals wrongdoing (please note again that I said if), then there is no breach of confidence or privacy, because, to use an old fashioned way of putting the point, “there is no confidence in iniquity”. If there is no evidence of wrongdoing, then even alleged bad guys have the right to privacy about stuff that is private.

The Raab one looks fake - he spells "too" as "to". Which is a stretch even for him.

The far right and the far left can usually agree with one another on hating everyone who is Jewish. Maybe Banks can go for a few pints at the Slaughtered Lamb with Corbyn, and they can have a good old ranty together about those dreadful Rothschilds.

It appears that way, those enjoying this because they don't share his view on the EU need to give their heads a wobble

On your first point, sure, presumably so long as the wrongdoing is illegality rather than simply something some people disagree with, such as referring to northern monkeys. But regardless of whether Banks has done something naughty or not, someone has broken the law in hacking the account?

Otherwise, aren't we at a point where we are happy accepting that the ends justify the means, and then surely we'd also be happy with the rozzers not troubling themselves with obtaining warrants so long as they bag a wrong 'un?

No doubt there will be a robust defence of Hilary Clinton from both of you in the PH archives.

That'll be a 'no' from you then hehe

BTW - The Trump thread on here is up to vol 7, so I'd imagine that some people have an opinion on matters US.
