Has anyone else heard about an update to the UK spying laws?

Here is a link to the article, I live in the UK and I find this very concerning. I was think it would introduce a 1984 style spying foundation the UK.

TLDR; If you live in the UK go offline and buy a tinfoil hat.

It's been said before and I'll say it again. Orwell was an optimist


They always pass this when the news is dominated by something else or someone they let in blew something up:)

You're talking about the British Isles that wants to ban Encryption. I mean cmon, if you're not doing anything against the law you've got nothing to hide right? They could also argue it would reduce the power bill at Mi6 headquarters breaking the encryption down at their base.
