Additional Legislation required.*
We already have had Turnbal and a few other ministers come out and proclaim their love of apps which create absolutely no meta-data. What we need is for more legislation enacted that bans public officials from using any forms of communications that cannot be traced or tracked, in the name of transperancy.
This will aid in the fight against corruption performed by our officials, as they will not be able to hide their shadey dealings behind these apps. As they like to say to us, if they have nothing to hide, they have nothing to fear.
But we all know this will never happen. We peons aren't meant to be able to hold our officials accountable for anything.
Perhaps it's time to organise a grassroots movement, whereby out of work, or part time workers volunteer their efforts in physically following these people as they move about town. Public officials, in a public space, have absolutely no right to privacy.
*This is not to say I'm in favour of the metadata trawling in the first place. Only if theyre going to do it to us, then they better be prepared to be held to the same standards.
