Climategate investigated by – WTF? – the 'National Domestic Extremism' team

James Delingpole
London Telegraph -

Finally the Norfolk rozzers are on the case of Climategate. Are they investigating fraudulent misuse of grant funds? Misleading manipulation of data by a taxpayer-funded research institute? Conspiracy to encourage the squandering of trillions of dollars on a non-existent problem?

Not according to the researches of the estimable blogger Bishop Hill. This morning he contacted the Norfolk Constabulary to ask them how the case was going: had they yet ascertained whether it was a leak or a hack. His response has just arrived:

Norfolk Constabulary continues its investigations into criminal offences in relation to a data breach at the University of East Anglia. During the enquiry officers have been working in liaison with the Office of the Information Commissioner and with officers from the National Domestic Extremism Team. The UEA continues to co-operate with the enquiry however major investigations of this nature are of necessity very detailed and as a consequence can take time to reach a conclusion. It would be inappropriate to comment further at this stage.


  1. "Get the whistleblower!" lol

    Literally, these people are truly insane. They are not investigating the true criminality - they want to catch the whistleblower or hacker that released the truth of the criminality of the organization.

    Let's remember - all corrupt insane groups always destroy themselves from the inside out.

    I'm waiting to see these evil ppl in the USA destroy themselves by nature of their own evil and insanity. They're trying to destroy us and this nation - and I believe they will succeed in destroying themselves. I'm expecting that LIBERTY will come through the flood and fire - but the evil insane oligarchal fascist power structure is going down in flames and will be swept away. In the USA - in this land - I'm more and more expecting to see it happen.

    Have a good one.
