The Prime Minister has launched a strong attack on the US whistleblower Edward Snowden and some newspapers for holding a "lah-di-dah, airy-fairy view" of the intelligence community.
He said that there are people in the world "who want to blow up our families" and that "what Snowden is doing and to an extent what the newspapers are doing" is helping such people to "evade" efforts to stop them.
"That is helping our enemies. Simple" he added.
