Wait for a bus and three arrive, find a spoof website and another appears as if by Magic. At least this fantasy site is NEW - or claims to be "CPNI, launched on 1st February" purports to be "The Centre for the Protection of the National Infrastructure" again another mixture of alphabetical soups ...."formed from the merger of the National Infrastructure Security Co-ordination Centre (NISCC) and a part of MI5 (the UK’s Security Service), the National Security Advice Centre (NSAC)."
