Theresa May’s ‘snooper’s charter’ doesn’t apply to MPs, of course.

Theresa May’s snooper’s charter has been passed allowing a huge long list of people to look at your Internet browsing history whenever they like.  Not only is democracy dead but privacy and free speech are also dead. The thought police have arrived.

razor-bladesGood advice for anyone right now is to switch to private internet browsing such as TOR, and private internet e-mail providers such as Startmail or ProtonMail.

However, what’s worth noting is that MPs are exempt from this legislation.  Yet more evidence of ‘do as I say, not do as I do’ and one rule for them and another for everyone else.

Why should MPs be exempt from this?  Because they write the legislation and they can make themselves exempt, and we can’t.  Could it be because they don’t want anyone knowing their private affairs, which might or might not involve the offshore companies, tax avoidance, expenses fiddling and sex scandals that we have come to expect from the crop of often reprehensible politicians we are served up by the establishment?

A country that works for everyone under Theresa May?  Well judging by this if it works for Theresa May and the MPs  (which we pay for) then naturally it’s working for everyone. Not.
