Re: All very Orwellian.
How quaint, lots of down votes for a reasonable rational comment.
Let's look at two possibilities,
1. The government is completely clueless and has absolutely no idea what it is doing with regards to encryption or IT, they have no advisers and absolutely no one who understands anything. Lets face it she's a woman who incorrectly used the term hastags.
2. They know exactly what they are doing and it's got nothing to do with terrorists.
I know what I believe.
