The proposal we were told was entirely vital to our national security was dropped by its proposers without a vote after a debate yesterday. You can’t take your eyes off them for a second, can you? I doubt we’d have been so lucky if it weren’t for organisations like ORG and EFF. You can thank them by supporting them.
A telling quote from the debate by the former Defence Secretary and later champion of the Intelligence and Security Committee, Lord King of Bridgewater:
I am not a tweeter. We have Facebook and Twitter. Somebody tried to explain WhatsApp to me; somebody else tried to explain Snapchat. I do not know about them, but it is absolutely clear that the terrorists and jihadists do.
