    Crossing my fingers that if they go through with this, all tech companies just stop doing business in the UK, causing them to realize what a horrible mistake they have made and undo it quickly.

      Not to mention people who will just up and leave. The Tory party have been turning this country to shit.

        Unfortunately the damage has already been done.

        The Assistance and Access Bill 2018 pretty much forces companies to backdoor their products when requested if they operate in Australia.

    Maybe if the EU did this, something like that would happen. With the UK? Pull your headquarters out there and dare them to block your service.

    Go ahead, ban all messaging services and cause riots. I’ll wait.

    When this goes ahead, and it probably will, I hope that every single app implements it in a totally different, unfriendly, unautomated, way, or even better, make it unique per person, per app. Or, even multiple methods that are only available at certain times of certain days. It’ll be absolutely useless to the government if they have to wade through mud to get at the data.

    I think with this they are even worst than China… Getting UK back to the top of at least one list must be the goal here.
