Draft snooper's charter 'fails on spying powers and privacy protections' | World news | The Guardian
Theresa May’s draft “snooper’s charter” bill fails to cover all the intrusive spying powers of the security agencies and lacks clarity in its privacy protections, a parliamentary committee has said. The intelligence and security committee said the draft legislation published by the home secretary suffered from a lack of sufficient time and preparation. It was evident that even those working on the legislation had not always been clear about what it was intended to achieve, it said.

The Guardian view on fair play in politics: a Conservative coup | Editorial | Opinion | The Guardian
From trade union reform to parliamentary process, the Tories show a pattern of contempt for the protocols of democracy [...] Thanks to a crafty, albeit constitutionally permitted, parliamentary manoeuvre, a cut that will affect hundreds of thousands of disadvantaged young people went through without proper debate or vote on the floor of the Commons. David Cameron commands a slender majority, but it is enough to pass most of his legislative programme in a more transparent fashion. Only the most controversial elements risk obstruction, either through rebellion on the Tory benches in the lower house or rejection in the upper one. [...] That episode, like the vote on student grants, is consistent with a pattern displayed by this government of impatience with democratic norms, verging on contempt. One habit is bundling measures of primary importance up in secondary legislation. [...] lay the foundations for a long-term Conservative monopoly on government.

Lawmakers Have Snuck CISA Into a Bill That Is Guaranteed to Become a Law : technology
CISA allows private companies to pass your personal information and online goings-on to the federal government and local law enforcement if it suspects a "cybersecurity threat," a term so broadly defined that it can apply to "anomalous patterns of communication" and can be used to gather information about just about any crime, cyber or not.

'Dark ages' warning issued over freedom of information changes | Media | The Guardian
Exempting advice given to ministers from freedom of information requests risks returning the UK to the “dark ages” of “private government”, the information commissioner has warned. Christopher Graham told a review into the legislation that changes to FoI being considered by a government commission could lead to a blanket ban on all advice being made available to the public. //&! bit.ly/1N3fuLD //&!

Überwachung in Großbritannien: Neues Gesetz vorgestellt - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Die Werbekampagne hat sich gelohnt. Am heutigen Mittwoch veröffentlichte Innenministerin Theresa May einen Gesetzentwurf (hier als PDF), der britischen Geheimdiensten noch mehr Macht verspricht. Die Spione können, sobald die sogenannte Investigatory Powers Bill vom Parlament verabschiedet wird, ganz legal das tun, was sie bislang ohne solide rechtliche Grundlage machten. Gleichzeitig sagte Innenministerin May, sie wolle die Aufsicht über die Geheimdienste stärken. [...] Theresa May betonte im Parlament, dass es nicht darum gehe, den gesamten Browserverlauf zu speichern, sondern nachvollziehen zu können, mit wem Verdächtige kommunizieren.

The NSA Reportedly Stole Millions Of SIM Encryption Keys To Gather Private Data | TechCrunch
The American National Security Agency (NSA), and the British Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ), similar clandestine intelligence agencies, stole SIM card encryption keys from a manufacturer, allowing the groups to decrypt global cellular communications data. [...] “NSA and GCHQ basically have the keys to decyrpting mobile communications anywhere in the world, even without the participation of local communication carriers (which, even if not much, acts as some check on intelligence agency behavior). It’s the equivalent of these agencies having printed doorkeys for the front doors to millions or even billions of homes around the world, just in case they one day decided they needed to get in. Frankly, people should have no faith in the security of global mobile communications.” >> CLU’s Christopher Soghoian - "Steal millions of crypto keys and then complain publicly that encryption is a problem. The UK and US govs are shameless."

The French government can now force ISPs to block websites without a court order | PandoDaily
Efforts to grant the French government the ability to control which websites are allowed inside the country accelerated after the shooting at Charlie Hebdo’s office on January 7. The government has also threatened to consider companies like Facebook and Google “accomplices” to hate-speech if they don’t remove extremist content from their properties. That’s the unfortunate irony of the Charlie Hebdo attack: an effort to silence a magazine which has since become an idol for free speech has led France and the United Kingdom to propose or introduce laws that limit speech through direct censorship and intimidation. [...] Internet content, France once again circumvents the judicial power, betraying the separation of powers in limiting what is the first freedom of all in a democracy — freedom of speech. // invites also abuse of the system. say one hacks ones business website, uploads illegal stuff, reports website, gets blocked 24hrs later, business has no website/business for 3 months.
