Cameron to ban encryption somehow

I watched his actual speech today rather than the press coverage that's been going on for the last few days.

I was yelling at the screen by the end of this >:(

  • Honestly surprised it took this long until this was posted here.

    Yes. Cameron is to ban encryption... Which would mean that Private Messaging apps wont be private anymore... and (potentially) connections to YOUR BANK ACCOUNT won't be either...

    Er... This isn't too thought out well. Also love this:

    Yes Dave. I do prefer to keep my privacy, well, private. Ta.
