[Only two emails on this one, but they're good uns. Linda wrote plenty about the RIP Bill and also about the discover that top White House staff in Washington were downloading some pretty sick porn off the Web]

RIP branded 'zombie legislation' as it passes Lords



It's funny that our President was raked across the coals for getting a hummer from an intern by the same people who spend our tax dollars downloading goat fuckers and paedophilia.

[We think it's only fair to inform you all that before heavy subbing, this was possibly the most illiterate email we have ever received. For that reason alone it is also one of our favourites. We did a search, praying that Paul Morris was an MP, but sadly, no (nearest is Sir John Morris). We're not sure why he seems to think he's entitled to vote for the Bill. Plus it had already become law when the email arrived. Enjoy]



I think this Bill is a despicable way for the government to try and monitor email. I for one will just make my own email server for my own use and then the government can't even do anything. Only large and medium ISPs will have to put the black boxes connected to the Internet email servers.

I for one have sent about 50 emails to my local government MP "Dr George Turner in West Norfolk" and I've told him that if this Bill becomes law it's easy to get round it and how would he like his email vetted by the government. What, as an example, would happen if "he was sent pictures of a obscene nature? Would he be taken to court and fined or imprisoned in jail for a time even if he didn't ask for it?"

I am seriously unhappy with this bill besides it's already obselete and for all those people who use PGP email encryption they will have to disclose there encrypted keys. I feel sorry for businesses that have signed "Non-Disclosure Agreements" not disclosing their conversations between any other party than themselves .

What if some rogue government agenda or MP gets hold of this information and leaks it? These people will indefinitely be sued by each other for breaking the NDA agreement.

I AM VOTING AGAINST THIS RIP BILL. How would Tony Blair like his emails monitored between his personal friends or William Hague and other world leaders (if they send email).

Let's face it, the government can't even keep its own memos secret without them being leaked, let alone expect it to be secure from the RIP Bill. I know what's going to happen, if it's law I can see hackers just deliberately targeting these black boxes in a attempt to get the email from them (some of these might contain very PRIVATE sensitive information on personal matters).

I WILL SUPPORT ANYTHING THAT WILL STOP THIS STUPID BILL FROM BECOMING REALITY .

Yours
Paul Morris
