The Cambridge Analytica issue Phillip Frazer is spot on (he makes a bit of a habit of that) but I wonder if he has read of this:

‘International deception and meddling is the name of the game for SCL (CA’s parent company). We finally have the most concrete evidence yet of shadowy actors using dirty tricks in order to rig elections. But these characters aren’t operating from Moscow intelligence bunkers. Instead, they are British, Eton educated, headquartered in the city of London and have close ties to Her Majesty’s government.’ (http://bellacaledonia.org.uk/2018/03/20/scl-a-very-british-coup/).

And they’ve interfered in elections in over 60 countries. Nobody should be surprised.

I wonder what Americans think of the British government interfering in their elections.
