Vexatious Fishing Expedition
So what they're proposing is vexatious fishing. They have no reason to suspect the people being spied on, they want blanket surveillance of everyone. Theresa May rejected requests for her web history calling it 'vexatious fishing' hypocrite!
It strips away the judicial control. A judge no longer issues each warrant and determines if the person is suspect enough to be spied on. Because they've done nothing to justify loss of their privacy right, and Cameron knows this.
It requires ISP backdoor encryption, which will be used by foreign powers against us. A multinational like Microsoft cannot resists Chinese demands for access to backdoors you require it to put in. All our trade commerical political secrets exposed.
To implement it, the ISPs want a $2 billion bribe. Lets not kid ourselves that is the cost, that is their 30 pieces of silver.
There's zero protection for journalists, campaigners, MPs, lawyers, judges, tv and newpaper editors, wanna-be politicians, or anyone with a view that the government disagrees with. We wouldn't know about all the illegal stuff you were doing without Snowden and the Guardian, and you want to spy on newspapers without a warrant? No.
Surveillance is kicked off by a politician in power against *.* with zero accountability and no means to check they comply.
This has been rejected 3 times by Parliament ALREADY, and the reason its come up again is because GCHQ has been doing it in secret and lobbying in secret to legalize it.
GCHQ have no business doing propaganda or lobbying against UK, using secret info only they have, against MPs who don't know the same secrets. They would be the biggest political party that isn't elected.
We found out that prosecutors have had access to this surveillance database, but yet that fact hasn't been revealed to judges in their cases. (I don't believe it was only ever done for innocent people, that's just cover for purjury, parallel construction and conspiracy to pervert the course of justice).
NSA no doubt had access to this database, and UK Parliament was lied to to conceal it. Which countries *NATIONAL* security do you lot represent?? We get it, you were elected under a system where Obama gets a report on UK politicians secrets, and thus his CIA and diplomats have had undue influence. So now we have a surveillance puppet government acting against its own people. No different than Eric Honnickers STASI was used against the East Germans to support the KGB.
