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?
So.. what, we gonna have them monitoring our messages now for 'key' words? Joy.
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.
Not too worry, only gayfags use social network sites anyway.
bugger me i just found out that im gay...
Hmm me too and about 5 billion other people... That's alot of adoptions
All those gays are gonna make for one hell of a parade, the government isnt going to like that
And congratulations on your coming out Nukeman8 and fdbh96!
Maybe you guys could hook up?
Post your address and we'll happily oblige...
>'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might as well blame the Communist Party for breaking their manifesto - Trident hasn't been scrapped and Britain hasn't withdrawn from Afghanistan...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)
Astral: Because breaking pre-election pledges isn't wrong either.
Hmmm, I'm big brother is watching you, the truth is out there etc
I guess it's time to popularize decentralized, heavily encrypted P2P chat via networks such as WASTE.
i seriously have a feeling we might just have another coalition. i know thats bad but current condition suggest that it either labour, or another coalition
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.
