Re: <nettime> MI5 spied on leading British historians for decades


Where is the problem? They were important enough that the MI5 was
interested in their work.

We live in a world of narratives and history is one of them. Everybody
is playing the legitimity-game maybe because nobody has anymore any, so
it was the duty of the MI5 to defend the UKs narrative.

The UK is still the country of spindoctors -- and they dont pay taxes.
