Andrew Scheer has been on a world tour of late meeting luminaries the likes of Boris Johnson and John Bolton. One wonders what they talked about during these meetings.
All three being staunch defenders of democracy I'm sure they conferenced on how best to defend this institution that is under a massive assault.
John Bolton-founded political group was one of Cambridge Analytica’s first customers
Donald Trump’s new national security adviser John Bolton collaborated with the data analytics firm Cambridge Analytica on an experiment to target YouTube videos to different “psychographic” profiles of US voters, the Guardian can reveal.
The project, to explore how different types of political campaign ads
would resonate with an electorate divided into different personality
types, involved Bolton appearing on-screen endorsing candidates in New
Hampshire, North Carolina and Arkansas in the run-up to the 2014
Boris Johnson’s undisclosed meeting with Alexander Nix of Cambridge Analytica
Now that Alexander Nix has been suspended as Cambridge Analytica chief
executive, the hunt is on to see who else he has been meeting – in
London or Washington. His meetings with UK officials would have been
disclosed. But one wasn’t: a meeting with Boris Johnson in December
2016. The Foreign Secretary wasn’t seeking the algorithm that took Trump
to victory – his objective was to try to learn about, and improve links
with, Team Trump. And here was a Brit who, apparently, was a close part
of that team.
