This is why I'm desperate for the UK to remain in the EU. If we are given sole governance as many seem to be pushing for, little will stop the government from enforcing all of its most draconian tracking and anti-encryption legislation, regardless of what the experts say.

I must say, although the intelligence surveillance seems more embedded in the US, there are at least politicians there that seem to understand it all.
