Stephen Milligan

The pathologists report into Milligan's death discounted the possibility of murder, lending weight to the belief that he died accidentally, as a result of autoerotic asphyxiation. No drugs or alcohol were found in his blood, and no substances were found to have contributed to his death. Milligan's death significantly contributed to ending John Major's "Back to Basics" policy initiative. In an interview after Milligan's death, Major said that "What I suppose does seem as though it is probable: he must have been pretty unhappy, pretty miserable".

bondageself bondage
The death in 1994 of Stephen Milligan, the British Conservative MP for Eastleigh, was a case of autoerotic asphyxiation combined with self-bondage. Self-bondage has all the risks of physical restraint and sexual bondage, with the added factor that should anything go wrong, there is no-one to effect a rescue. For example, if blood circulation cuts off sensation in limbs, the planned escape mechanism may not be usable. Self-bondage can be either strict or sensual. In sensual self-bondage, escape from restraints is simple and available immediately, if desired. For example, the keys might be within reach or the knots loosely tied.

Glenn Greenwald

David MirandaGreat American Hypocrites: Toppling the Big Myths of Republican PoliticsGreenwald, Glenn
Journalist Andrew Ross Sorkin said "I would arrest Snowden and now I'd almost arrest Glenn Greenwald", but later made an apology for his statement, which Greenwald accepted. Journalist David Gregory accused Greenwald of aiding and abetting Snowden, before asking, "Why shouldn't you, Mr. Greenwald, be charged with a crime?" In a 2013 interview with Martha Raddatz of ABC News, Greenwald said that members of Congress are being "blocked" from getting "the most basic information about what NSA is doing ... and what the FISA court has been doing ...", and specifically referenced Rep.
