    So Mark Zuckerberg has accepted the European Parliaments invite to Brussels. I wonder if this will be as embarrassing for them as it was for the US senate ??

    Lol, I was just writing this up as news. Didn't see that you had beaten me to it!

    Bet May isn't pleased that he turned down the UK Parliament. I wonder if they will issue a formal summons like they've threatened...?

    Well you can always do that and delete this one if you think it will get a better reach. As for the summons I don't think they will as he has accepted their invite without any hassle.

    No it's fine, I'm happy to leave both.

    He accepted the invite from the EU Parliament but rejected the one from the UK Parliament - apparently they've threatened to issue a formal summons. It'll be interesting to see what happens!

    Isn't it a bit hypocritical the UK government questioning him on privacy when they have the Snoopers Charter ?

    Isn't that a bit "apples and oranges" — no matter how much we may (dis)like "the Snooper Charters" that exist in most countries?
