My snoopers’ charter posts…

With Theresa May now trying to scare us into accepting the snoopers charter, I realised quite how much I’ve written about the subject since it raised its ugly head earlier this year. Here are links to some of my main posts on the subject….

April 2012:

If you build it, they will come: why building a system like this will create vulnerabilities

Choose your dystopia – how we’re following fiction: 1984, Brave New World etc… with the snoopers charter.

Wishful thinking – how the whole case for the bill is based on wishful thinking. My talk (and report) from the ISPA conference.

The politics of privacy – why, even if the Lib Dems end up opposing the bill, we may find it hard to defeat!

I’m almost sorry to have written so much – but I do think this is a very important subject… and we shouldn’t let Theresa May’s scare tactics frighten us away… the bill needs to be opposed, and defeated!
