New UK Home Sec invokes infosec nerd rage by calling for an end to end-to-end encryption


It's still a mostly free country...

...and she has a perfect to be bloody stupid!

It sounds like a perfectly valid reason for some ne'er do well to hack her personal comms and publish everything to all an sundry as a fine example of what will happen.

The thing is, these idiots say they want no encryption but what they don't realise is that the average person has a duller life than dishwater, so no one cares about what they talk about. The crims will simply hire someone to build them a phone app with encryption. That leaves those in charge who have a ton of dirty secrets they don't wany published and so they're the ones who will have their dirty laundry aired.

So have it is what I say, the sooner these prats have their personal dirty little lives splashed all over the tabloids, the quicker they'll belt up about removing encryption and let the rest of us have it back so we can send dirty love notes to our partners.
