Of course this couldn't affect national security

It's a good thing that our UK politicians don't use WhatsApp for all their private plotting/machinations/etc. And I'm sure that they wouldn't ever use it to discuss matters of national security.

Oh wait...

Well at least on the plus side, Gavin Williamson now has another line he can use to claim that he wasn't a leaker.
