<nettime> The GCHQ is leaving the EU. A chance for democracy?

With its practices of JTRIG[1] and KARMA POLICE[2]
the UK government is responsible[3] for a massive 
attack on democracy as the case of the Malvinas in
2008 has shown.[4] Does the new development represent
a chance to let the supporters of civil rights in the
European Commission dominate over the dumbheads that
still promote the idea that data were a fuel for the
economy when it primarily is the medium to blackmail
each individual person alive on the planet? And do we 
now have a greater chance of redemocratizing the EU?

P.S. Is it a shame that I only come up with one decent
