Re: This must be....

Thinking about it, I think I see the real endgame, having been chatting in the office about this.

Use of encrypted comms (VPN, TOR, anything non-trivial) where a judge deems it to be 'unnecessary' becomes a terrorist act.

Encrypt your email? Boom, you're no longer a citizen of this country - no vote, no lawyer, no appeal.

And it'll slip through parliament like a hot knife through fucking butter.

Fucking sickening.
