The government can't fix potholes in the road, but dont worry they're going to fix the internet.

It's going to be interesting to see what they think they can actually do. They cannot control the whole internet and locking it down in the UK would compromise what we can achieve with it. Okay, so you can protect vulnerable people within Facebook, but that is not the whole internet. I really wonder if they even know how any of it works

Thanks to Edward Snowden we know that UK is the best ally of USA on his mass surveillance programmes, so this is not a suprise at all. I wonder if this may be one of the reasons for leaving the EU.

Its one of the first things that crossed my mind to be honest. Interesting you make the same point. In any case we are all headed to a police state like surveilance here in Spain they are taking similar steps to take our freedom away.

The EU always had better privacy protection than USA. However it is true that we are slowly losing those rights.

I live in Spain too (Madrid) and agree with you about the situation here. People that use social networks to threaten other people must be prosecuted, people that tell black humour jokes must be protected by freedom speach rights.
