Dumb move - government and the police should be encouraging the use of social networks for planning anything amiss. Far easier to trace and catch people afterwards...

Christ they're a bunch of vajazzles. It hasn't been all that long in historical terms that we have had a free press, now because they're scared and know that they can't fix the problem they want to sound all big and bad?

They've been doing that for a long time

It does seem wrong though that only months ago the government was praising the use of social networks helping in coordination of several of the Arab uprisings and now they have a problem with them for the same reason they praised them, allowing coordination between normal people.

>'We are not going to become like Iran or China,' Nick Clegg told the BBC .'We are not going to suddenly start cutting people off'

I personally don't trust what comes out of Clegg's mouth (let alone many other MPs) especially after the turn-arounds from his pre-election manifesto after he got into bed with the blues.

What was the definition of fascism according to Mussolini, again?
Nick Clegg is a phoney liberal.

You do realise that the Tories had to make as many "turn-arounds" as the result of the coalition deal don't you? (AV referendum, increase in tax threshold, 50% top rate tax, etc).

This talk of manifesto "broken promises" is frankly bizarre - manifestos come with one big proviso: "If we get elected" and the LibDems weren't. Coalition means compromise and anyone who doesn't like that should blame the British public for not voting more for $FAVOURITE_PARTY - and oppose electoral changes that make coalitions more likely.

One might as well blame the Communist Party for breaking their manifesto - Trident hasn't been scrapped and Britain hasn't withdrawn from Afghanistan...

(apologies for thread sidetrack)

I guess it's time to popularize decentralized, heavily encrypted P2P chat via networks such as WASTE.

Why is it anymore that the UK seems to have this idea that their laws apply to the rest of the world? Even if the company is in another country.

As always, trying to look like they are doing something by tackling the symptons and not the causes. Lets hope nothing comes of this stupidity.

couldn't agree more @Denis_iii.

remember that by their very natures governments and law enforcement are about control. many times this profits the greater good, often it does not. when it comes to what is considered "criminal" behavior, actions taken by the aforementioned will be for our own good, protection, etc. they are mostly reactive and do nothing to address the underlying causes because they have no intention and/or ability to rectify the underlying causes.
