Default Cameronís internet law has huge loopholes

The Draft Investigatory Powers Bill presented by the UK Home Secretary Theresa May to parliament earlier this week has a loophole so wide you could park a 747 in it, sideways.

This is legislation that will force UK ISPs to keep an Internet Connection Record for a year and force Apple and Google to abandon consumer level encryption.

But the entire law fails to mention the one thing which makes the whole law pointless Ė Virtual Private Networks (VPNs).

For a few pounds a year you can install some Ďcustomer-friendlyí VPN software which makes every transaction show up as encrypted traffic. This makes them the tool of choice of any paedophile child sex ring and practically mandatory for terrorists.
