WhatsApp BAN: Britons’ OUTRAGE over David Cameron’s ‘DISGUSTING’ plans to BLOCK app
Hugely popular messaging services – including WhatsApp, SnapChat and iMessage – could be BANNED in the UK under strict new encryption laws.
However – more than 45,000 people have voted against the government plans in an Express.co.uk reader poll.
A meagre 12 per cent of those 52,200 readers surveyed agreed with Prime Minister Cameron’s plans to intercept online communications. (To get 12%, half the government must have voted).
Private online communications will be opened-up by the Government’s “Snooper’s Charter” – or the Investigatory Powers Bill, to give the bill its full title – which requires internet service providers, phone companies and technology firms like Google, Apple, Facebook and WhatsApp keep a record of all of your activity.
This troubling database of information (which will include all your Google searches, your Facebook conversations, WhatsApp group messages and SnapChat videos) will be made available to the UK police and Government whenever they require.
Mr. Cameron is doing is nothing but blatantly invade the personal privacy of millions of Britons. I mean what safeguards are being put in place to police the watchdogs?
“A law of this nature is a property of an oppressive, Orwellian regime, where ordinary citizens are treated as suspects.
“Such a government is positioned AGAINST the people, not in favour of them.”
Please vote against the Snoopers Charter. We need to actively support the express standing against the dreaded Snoopers Charter. We literally are in East Germany… the clock is ticking.
