"Nothing has changed! Nothing has changed!" In full Maybot malfunction mode, that's what Theresa May famously said during her manifesto meltdown just a few weeks ago. Something's changed alright. And it may well mean Britain's Prime Minister is changed too.It was 5.52am when it was officially confirmed that the UK now had a hung Parliament (were you up for Southampton Test and Alan Whitehead?), and that May had lost the precious Commons majority that David Cameron had slogged through five years to achieve. Yet just like Cameron's reckless gamble on an EU referendum, May's hubristic decision to call a snap election has failed and failed spectacularly.

Chris Hobbs | Posted 04.05.2017 | UK

Issues around border controls linked to terrorism, 'traditional' criminality, migration, immigration, national security and even queueing times should, as far as is possible, be in the public domain especially around election time.

No, Amber Rudd, You Still Shouldn't Get To See My WhatsApp Messages

Tom Edwards | Posted 03.04.2017 | UK Tech
Tom Edwards

The Prime Minister and Home Secretary should be asking themselves what exactly it is they are trying to protect from these terrorists, if not the basic freedoms of their citizens? They would likely argue that if we've done nothing wrong, we have nothing to hide - and should therefore be more than happy for the government to snoop in on our messages. But that's not the point.
