    Your talking about the “five eyes” or FVEY. These five countries share (or supposedly share) intelligence. It’s the most tight knit intelligence alliance the world has seen - so of course they’re all spying on each other as well 🤣

    It's still fun to bring up the revolution, and not mention France's help. Lol. I'm 80% British. Both sides of my family's came over in the 15 and 1600s.
