Prisoner freed, Obama and Big brother states.
Chinese artist Ai Weiwei most famous for his 'sunflower seed' project has finally been released from jail after 81 days. Ai Weiwei is now a much thinner and quieter man from the one that was brought into custody initially for supposed 'tax evasion' although this has been largely disputed and after pressure from multiple European leaders he has been released on bail.
President of the United States Barack Obama has finally broken the silence and spoken out on Weiner-Gate. Obama said he hopes that the recent resignation of Weiner will now allow the man to focus on his family life.
The collective police database that has been in the works since 2002 following the Bichard inquiry into the failings by police into the Soham murders in 2002. Questions have arose however as to the method at which police are obtaining 'intelligence' for the database as it is believed that out of the millions already set to be transferred onto the new system a significant proportion is believed to be compromised by innocent people including victims themselves to the wrongly accused. After the large number of recent security breaches in major organizations people are beginning to fear the worst that their data will soon be compromised.
