Shamima Begum’s case shows us citizenship can never protect our rights | James Bridle | Opinion | The Guardian
It is not hard to see echoes of May’s jingoism in her use of the British citizens living in the EU as pawns in the Brexit negotiations; we are, after all, mere “citizens of everywhere”. The global surveillance regime initiated in the “war on terror” has also allowed the security services to perform a de facto rewriting of the concept of citizenship, as revealed in the Edward Snowden documents. No longer is a passport or ID card sufficient to assert citizenship, and the rights that descend from it. Instead, our legal status is in a constant state of reassessment by GCHQ and the National Security Agency’s algorithmic data-processing systems, exposing us all to a form of digital statelessness.

Britain’s zombie government — Mosquito Ridge — Medium
"The triple crisis — steel, welfare and now tax havens — makes the UK government look like a committee for managing the affairs of the super-rich: assiduously lobbying Brussels to lay off scrutiny of tax vehicles, assiduously ignoring the plight of steel.

The only reason they are not in absolute panic mode is that the media will do everything they can to avoid this turning toxic. Not only because the media are ideologically committed to the freemarket doctrine of smash the poor and avoid taxes. It is because many of the owners are personally enmired in the system the Panama Papers reveal the tip of."
