Did EU ruling invalidate the UK's bonkers Snoopers' Charter?

Re: Still debating the same points, again

"All the above points have been raised and debated so many times. I really don't understand why the Government just does not go back and amend the act "

The *whole point* of the DRIP and IP bills is to legalised the (pre-existing) indiscriminate mass surveillance that Snowden and others revealed was happening, in absence of law, oversight etc.

As it turns out, those activities they seek to legalise are incompatible with leaving in a free, fair and function democracy. Never mind fundamental rights to privacy (remember, the EU rights just enshrine UN principles). But Our Glorious Leader has hitched her self to the "something must be done. Terrorist blah blah blah" wagon and so has no way out (such as an appeal to expert opinion).
