Re: ....risks breaking international human rights law
I trust Johnny Foreigner just because he has so much less to gain. What use is anything I put down the VPN to him? Anything useable in distance crime will be HTTPS. My government can use "communication records" to blackmail me, Johnny Foreigner is unlikely to have a motive to do that. Worst case is that he gives it back to the UK and I'm still better off than I would otherwise have been because the evidence is tainted.
