    Default Cambridge Analytica, great British success or a really evil organisation?

    Are we knocking a British success here? Does it matter if it's evil?

    If good and evil are abstract concepts why can't we celebrate a British company providing services around the world?

    As long as the evil is performed with class, it should be celebrated. As Jaguar tried a few years ago

    Seeing as the British are inherently evil because we are the only country to have raped and pillaged our way around the globe (the Dutch, Portuguese, Spanish, French all being saints) then this is a Great British Success as it's taking our basic moral decrepitude and making it work in the modern age.

    Of course! There's nothing more British than knocking British success. One only has to peep into the remoaner sub forum to see that.

    Exactly, lets make a success out of our bad boy reputation.

    The Democrats used data from social networks for their campaign when Obama won, so Cambridge Analytica are a success story as they have worked out how to use what others have before and make a decent profit.

    Democrats did not steal data, and they did not get it enhanced by foreign power who hacked electoral rolls and matched people's affiliations with their Facebook accounts

    Big difference
