Foot-shooting

Finland is said to enjoy strong legal protection over government surveillance of data, particularly when compared to neighbouring Sweden.

That is the current situation, but in a fit of incomprehensible me-tooism, officials now want to change that and allow mass surveillance of the net. Pure stupidity. It would not really help with security (baddies can always find a way around such wiretapping when aware of it), and would remove one competitive advantage in the data centre business.
