Peter Hitchens today in his blog

'The creepiest and most fascinating thing on the internet is the trailer for a new film, M3gan (pronounced ‘Megan’), which has absolutely nothing to do with Prince Harry or his wife. It portrays a sinister child-sized doll robot, which starts out claiming to be the heroine’s friend and protector, and then turns out not to be. Be especially wary when she starts to dance. Make of it what you like, but to me it’s a good metaphor for the whole new electronic world, a glowing, seductive shop window which has beckoned us into a world of censorship, surveillance and, I suspect, despotism.'
