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

All the crowing yesterday about the fact that the ECJ had sent this issue back to the court of appeals seems to miss that, had the ECJ not had jurisdiction over this matter, the case would already have been settled in favour of privacy.

You mean if we weren't part of the EU and weren't party to the EU Charter on Fundamental Human Rights, AKA the very basis for this challenge.

Yes, it'd have been settled quickly, the courts would have said "Those EU rules don't apply here".

So, yeah, it's a good thing
