I shall be going to a satellite screening of this on the 17th.

Although I don't fully understand Snowdon's motivations, in my gut I think what he did was right and that citizens are far too trusting. They need to know that the state is not some benevolent entity with their best interests at heart.

As an aside, some of my work colleagues - not many of the women, I should add - think Snowdon to be more deserving of the Nobel Peace Prize than Malala Yousafzai. They may be right - I'm still trying to sort out my own position on this.

More deserving? Since the Nobel Peace Prize went to Kissinger it's not hard to find more deserving candidates.

I view Snowdon as a hero, he did all of us a BIG SERVICE and put his life and wellbeing on the line. Telling how the Western World regards its own so-called values when a man who made a giant and ongoing crime against all our privacy public has to live in a rival dictatorship for his pains now. I support the Peace Prize for Yousafzai, but I'd support it going to Snowdon just as much if not more. He's a Winston Smith inside the apparat and hopefully his actions serve as an example for all those whose conscience isn't numbed out or handed in at the security gate.
