UK Information Commissioner Christopher Graham told the Draft
Investigatory Powers Bill Select Committee that there is no apparent
justification for the proposed 12-month data retention period. Graham
also said that the bill should include a sunset clause, so that
legislators can re-evaluate and amend the data collection provisions.

US technology companies Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Twitter and Yahoo
have provided a joint submission to the British government in which they
offer their criticism of the bill. Among other concerns, they object to
a provision that would require tech companies to help intelligence
agencies access computers and phones.

I hope this gets junked. Really bad legislation that bares no merits.

They keep talking about the Paris attackers but they didn't even use the internet or encryption to coordinate their attack, it was done by SMS text messaging, the most basic level of digital communication available.

Strong encryption and privacy need to be an unmovable pillar of a democratic nation. Allowing governments to read everything we do should be a sign of a dictatorship.
