Twitter Reacts to David Cameron’s Encryption Ban Plan

/ 3 years ago

Britain's Prime Minister David Cameron gestures as he delivers a speech on the economy, in Nottingham

On Monday, UK Prime Minister David Cameron announced plans to essentially ban end-to-end internet encryption and to grant British intelligence access to any part of the web they choose if his Conservative party is re-elected in May.

Cue Twitter to mock, protest, and express absolute incredulity at the clueless politician:

Cameron seems to think that end-to-end encryption is a nefarious tool only used by “terrorists”, either ignorant of the fact that the post-internet world runs on encryption – every international transaction his banker friends makes relies on such protocols – or appealing to the implied ignorance of the British public. With an election looming, the latter seems most likely.
