    Default Phorm Back in the News

    Looks like Phorm is back in the news again -

    "Ah, do come in, Mr. Mints! We were told to expect you, so your table is ready - it's the one with the fat brown envelope lightly sellotaped to the back of the menu.
    I think you'll find "UK Green Turtl" of particular interest.
    No, that's not a misprint, sir - it's a slightly different creature, this one. "

    Interesting that the alleged dining habits of a City of London police officer are to be looked at by...
    ...the City of London Police.

    Phorm will never go away as the government and the police both failed to act in the publics interest instead they lined their own pockets..
