The great Cambridge Analytica Rehab Project kicks off with softball interview with former CEO Alexander Nix. Which, um, includes him confessing to bribing St Kitts politician. "Naive," he says. Er, no. It's "criminal". Totally illegal under UK Bribery Act

I'm sorry but this *is* a crime, isn't it, lawyers? UK Bribery Act was groundbreaking piece of legislation. We knew company was behind this - but just bizarre to confess to it while attempting to rehabilitate image. Doesn't this now put pressure on @NCA_LynneOwens to investigate?

This is also a crime under UK law. We published a year ago. @NCA_UK took no action or even got in touch. It's not that I want to see individuals punished. But actively seeking publicity while pretending entire story is a persecutory fantasy is...too much
