Where were you when the war on encryption and monitoring became legal?
I don't want to live in that world.

Another interesting perspective on the current election situation with respect to privacy. It's astounding the degree of ignorance displayed by the major parties, particularly while privacy is currently a very hot topic within the public and with respect to Snowden and Assanage topics.

"... In their manifesto, the Conservatives vow to “keep up to date” powers to access communications metadata - the who, where and how of emails, text messages and phone calls. The Labour party manifesto said it was committed to “strengthening” the powers available.
...
Only the Liberal Democrats, the Greens and the Scottish National party have pledged to curb surveillance powers. The Lib Dems, who helped to defeat the communications data bill from within the coalition, said they were opposed to the “blanket collection” of British people’s personal communications.
...
Gus Hosein, the executive director of Privacy International, said: “We are gravely concerned that at the moment the larger political parties are totally out of step with public opinion on the right to privacy.""
Campaigners say both parties’ manifestos would extend powers of security agencies with pledges that are ‘totally out of step’ with public opinion

It is currently discouraged to broadcast possible negative consequences from leaving a union, while before it was the only broadcast theme.
Welcome to the biased broadcast stations, frequently controlled in what is publicised by the Government. The hypocrisy would be laughable if not for the consistency becoming the normal.
UK’s largest commercial radio group cited ‘editorial reasons’ for pausing coverage of how bank’s Swiss banking arm helped wealthy customers dodge taxes
