They don't give a Flying F#@k about all of us...
"continue to pass around sensitive data"
That should read, "continue to pass around OUR sensitive data"
Meanwhile they will make bloody sure THEIR sensitive data (like expenses) never leaks and if it does, there will be strong laws in place to burn anyone who dares to leak their data.
One law for the powerful, another for the peasants ... as usual. They really don't give a Flying F#@k about all of us.
Plus how many sub-contracted companies are going to be freely accessing our data.
“Such data were accessed by authorities using RIPA powers 504,073 times last year. “
Yeah and thats just the start of the nightmare. How many of the 504073 spying moves are by local councils yet even more shocking is that the arrogant self centered control freaks in government have now secretly give literally Police State powers to the local councils to allow them to enter our homes without the police! (even the police are angry about it!), so now the councils are free to be their own police force, to enter our homes and are allowed by the new law changes to take our property for minor offenses like council tax.
So what the hell happens if you live in a flat where a previous tenant has failed to pay their council tax! ... I've been in that situation and had the loud and angry council debt collection bailiffs waking me up, just so I could prove to them I'm not who they are after. Thankfully I got through to them. Now imagine poorly trained arrogant local council thugs with the power of some kind of Police State SS being able to enter our homes and take our property as and when they choose and by taking it they personally profit from it because councils will sub-contract this work out. Its utterly jaw dropping they have so quietly sneaked this law past us all. i.e...
So now they refuse to protect our data. Almost every move of this government keeps showing the bloody minded control freaks in power don't care about us at all. We are just the peasants that our ever more powerful masters are free to keep spying on and bullying around however they bloody well choose, with utter contempt for protecting us.
I don't see how we can suffer at least another 6 months of this government, they need to be thrown out now. They keep showing they are too dangerous to trust at all with our privacy, freedom, liberty and even democracy.
