David Cameron has stated that in the wake of the Paris murder of Charlie Hebdo employees, that he will be ending secure encrypted chat. What this means is that Whatsapp, iCloud, Pidgin OTR and many many more chat clients will become illegal in the United Kingdom. He stated:
“In our country, do we want to allow a means of communication between people which we cannot read?”
Of course he doesn’t want to NOT be able to spy on the citizens of The UK. Criminals will always find a way to do what they are going to do, so this will solve nothing other than furthering the Governments agenda for dominance over its people. They will be able to read EVERYTHING that is insecure, and not only that but they will open a major security hole in their citizens lives who want to protect their sensitive data. It seems many countries want this level of control over their people, and they are pretty forward about it. They however hide behind the guise of “Terrorism” and use big words to scare their citizens into accepting their freedoms being taken away.
Hopefully there is backlash that convinces him that what he is doing is a horrible idea. If you are reading about this here, please share this information with someone. Write about it. Do not allow the UK to be turned into a surveillance police state as it existed in V for Vendetta as. It seems it may be there in a few more decades if things persist as they are.
