They can see whats coming, people are not totally oblivious to absolutely everything.
That is whether or not a civil war is brewing, and if there was, this law could actually help stop planned protests, so it is in fact not a pointless law and they have bigger things to worry about.

Not sure when. all it will need is a catalyist. Whatched a program on tv kast night that followed the protests and riots last time. The feeling on the street is that it will happen again and this time maybe normal people will be out aswell.

Unless you are a super-geek, you would never be able to tell if someone has hacked into your e-mails, etc. Either way, it's not difficult to get a warrant nowadays. The police have been cracking into Facebook accounts for years without anyone knowing it - and before anyone asks, they can do it without that "Someone tried to log into your account" bullsh*t appearing when you log in. People are so damn naive...

The warrant system for obtaining communications data under RIPA is rather different to that for obtaining warrants for search/seizure of property. It's the Home Office who grant the warrants, and reasonable grounds need to be established. But as your ex-Plod, I imagine you knew that anyway.

Only got 5 posts in, but this sums it up.

Are you serious? That's the sh*ttiest argument ever.

Very much so buddy. It is not an argument, its an opinion. It won't affect 99% of the public in there day to day lives. I'm not saying its morally right. But i completely fail to see why there is such a controversy over something that doesnt affect the way you live.

I disagree, freedom is almost tangible. It's the ability to speak out without fear of reprisals, the ability to offend others and be offended in turn and it's also about the sharing of power, so no one is completely unaccountable. Freedom is a real thing, not some woolly philosophical concept you can argue away.


I'm afraid ill agree to disagree. I'm sorry but I fail to see the logic in that. I.can say and speak whatever I feel, without worry? I mean, I would walk through a city centre smoking a reefer, talking cocaine with mates and it Wouldnt bother me. I genuinely feel free. Eat what I want, drink what I want, think what I want.

Anyways, I might be completely missing the point. But regardless if I am, it won't affect me. I'm a free man.

@Kent Traffic Cop...you really being serious about them censoring TV networks? How did we go from talking about them monitoring web conversations to them shutting down TV networks...and even to the conversation about 1984?

@Viperman...free man? Come back and say this when the law is finally brought in that bans smoking from ANY outdoor place, or the one where it bans us from smoking from inside our own vehicles. To abide by laws in this world means we are not 'free', as such.

About the riots subject, do you think it's a matter of when it will happen again, or if? If this Government keeps going the way they are, then it won't be too long before the 'Lost Generation' bring the country to chaos again.

Mr Clegg has insisted any enhanced powers, plans for which could be included in next month's Queen's Speech, must be subject to extensive study by MPs before becoming law.

On Sunday, Lib Dem President Tim Farron said the Lib Dems were "prepared to kill" the plans "if it comes down to it" while suggesting he would be surprised if the final plans looked "anything like the press reports we have had".


To be honest as I surmised earlier in this topic, I doubt it if ever would come to fruition, there's probably EU law which prevent it.

But those riots were not about a 'lost generation'. They were about opportunists hijacking a legitimate protest.
But in the future could we see similar things? Possibly. But unless future riots have a decidedly political bent and do not attack public buildings, they will accomplish nothing.

But it must also be remembered that many in this country are ignorant, pig ignorant. And would not act against the established system even if their lives depended on it, as long as they have their football and pornography, they're willing to grumble through any laws, no matter how unreasonable they may be.

A Law doesn't mean anything to anybody, unless it is applied 'unfairly' to yourself.
Most people don't even know when a law is enacted, let alone discussed/debated.

As I mentioned in a seperate topic though, I think it's fair to say it was 50/50, and all depends on who you are and the way you want to look at it. Yes, many of them were scummy little bastards who wanted a new pair of trainers, but it's also down to the society that they live within. I can't see a political riot happening within the UK for some time now, simply because no-one seems to give a f*ck about the politics anymore.

And yes, 90% of this population are pig-ignorant, rather sitting there and complaining about something, yet not been arsed to deal with all the little details...as we have seen from the English people in this topic who have been spurting out all these sensationalist comments.

Your missing the point - I'm not talking about different legislation, etc.

What I'm trying to explain is this:

Property warrant = you will KNOW police have been there. You can see it with your eyes.
Digital warrant = how will you know whether you e-mails have been hacked? What physical thing will you see?

Unless they leave you a note with "police woz 'ere 2012" you will be none the wiser.

Nope, I must have missed that part of the book where everything they did on the internet was monitored. sarcasm.gif

You mention scaremongering a nation, then come in here and rant on about them censoring TV networks and much more.

When the only way you can get some is by dogging in the woods or humping in the upstairs of an old mans shop, then you might have a point. When someone threatens to let rats use your face as a buffet table, then you might have a point. But goddamn, it's not comparible to 1984 so stop being so dramatic and getting carried away.

How am I being dramatic and getting carried away... or even ranting? All I've done is state a few things. I wasn't aware I had been writing "OMGZ we iz all gonna dies!!!1!!" or anything to that effect.

I am simply "putting it out there" - if you decide to ignore everything I say then that is up to you, but don't effectively call me a c*nt just because I don't like something.


Also, I'm referring to "1984" as a concept of control, not as in word-for-word from the book.

People are using "V" from "V for Vendetta" as a symbol - doesn't mean they have to follow it to exacting standards... or are you going to complain that "Occupying St. Paul's Cathedral" is not in the comics? rolleyes.gif

Being pedantic doesn't make you clever... sarcasm.gif

I'm just saying using hyperbole doesn't help. "We didn't avoid 1984 we just delayed it" Does sound a bit dramatic to me. If you're against it fine, I'm not bothered about that. But if you're going to say things like that you're painting a target on your head and you're going to be open to ridicule.

Sorry but I just don't agree with your analogy. Firstly, you're not obtaining anything tangible. If someone executes a property warrant on your house, they're going to remove your possessions. Removing them means they cease to be in your ownership. The same is just not true of data- it's not being removed, it's being replicated, and in order to replicate it it needs to be transmitted voluntarily, or must be held externally. RIPA makes it quite clear that data privacy only applies inside the four walls of one's home- if you start hosting data externally, or transmitting it publicly (through the phone lines or wifi, for example) it ceases to become private as the ultimate owner of the medium through which the data is transmitted is the government. When you sign up with your ISP, or with Hotmail, or Facebook, you're not signing a non-disclosure form- they own your data and can do whatever they damn well please with it. It's not actually your data, it's theirs. You are just subject to the illusion that it's your own because, more often than not, you've not actually read the terms and conditions of whatever you signed up for.

Now, if you're talking using malware, or active attacks to break into computer systems of individuals for the purposes of obtaining data without the owner's permission, that's far closer to your example. But the vast majority of electronic intelligence is gathered at the point of transmission or prior to reception, rather than before transmission as this would imply. And as much as you may try and invoke images of an Orwellian future, the simple fact of the matter is once that data has been transmitted, be it a web click or an email, it ceases to become your property. The data carrier is the legal owner, not the sender. And they're already holding all this information- so exactly what difference does it make to allow the security services to access it actively rather than passively? Why should you even care seen as, as far as they law is concerned, it's no longer your data or even private?

The issue isn't the law, it's a lack of understanding of the law. If more people actually understood that, aside from that which is on their hard drive and not transmitted in any way, they don't "own" any of the electronic information that they've sent, hosted or received, then the entire thing would become a non-issue.

If we were ignoring you then how come we are arguing against the points you are making? You said something, and we debated against it, and now you're getting all worked up about it.

I understood that you were using 1984 just as the basic concept, but it's still too farfetched to be brought up in this topic. This law would only allow a group to see who talks to who, when, and for how long the conversation lasted, and I just can't see the slightest resemblance to a nation that has everything censored/monitored.
