Britain is run from an iPad

Written by Nick Farell



Which explains why it is not an empire


If you ever wondered how the UK is in such a state, it is probably because its Prime Minister David Cameron believes that is possible to run everything from his iPad.

According to the Daily Telegraph Cameron thinks it is a good idea commit serious data and public information to Apple's Walled Garden of Delights. He forgets of course that since Apple is a US company the CIA can pop around and take what ever he stores on it, but hell America has known British secrets for years.

In what appears to be a puff piece which is designed to show voters that Cameron is an “ordinary high tech sorta bloke” rather than an isolated, privileged, toff who still thinks that the UK can do without Europe, the Telegraph said that he has just had a special app made for him. The app will "allow the Prime Minister to see the latest NHS waiting-figures, crime statistics, unemployment numbers and a wide variety of other data at a glance."

The idea for the app "came from a trip by advisers to the US" we wonder why they suggested that?
