HOME Secretary Theresa May today warns MPs who oppose new powers to probe the internet: “Do not put politics before people’s lives.”
In an exclusive interview with The Sun, the Home Secretary insists “we could see people dying” if a new law to authorise online probing is blocked.
Her thinly-veiled attack on Deputy PM NIck Clegg’s stand on civil liberties grounds is the most explosive public exchange yet between senior Coalition ministers."
"Case 1: A MAJOR criminal investigation was launched into a website used as a secret [sic] portal for viewing more than 2,000 [more than 2,000 !!!] indecent images of children.
Cops were provided with the IP addresses of everyone [see below] who had been accessing the site and many [?] people were identified from the data and prosecuted.
They included a serving police officer from Lancashire and a school governor from Merseyside.
Both were jailed [for looking at pictures, maybe]. But others escaped [innocent, until proven guilty] because internet access companies had no record of who had used the IP addresses. [maybe those using proxies? etc etc etc]"

Would you Adam and Eve it?
"No sooner was the ink dry on my post, than Ms Raccoon was proved, both satisfyingly and depressingly, right – yet again.
It is all OUR fault. Us. The web.
The establishment is circling its wagons to protect ‘the free press‘, you see:
On the whole, journalists are highly intelligent, amusing and frequently idealistic.
Decent coves, to a man, but sadly led astray. What led them astray was:
People are getting their news from different sources – principally the profusion of electronic media – and there seems to be no stopping the erosion in support for traditional papers. Every year, every month, they are losing ground to blogs and Twitter and Google News; every year the internet eats more destructively into the business case for old-fashioned journalism. That is at least one of the reasons why some journalists have been driven to behave so disgracefully, squawking ever louder, no matter how erroneously, in the hope of being noticed.
See what you’ve done? By talking amongst yourselves on the Internet, you’ve starved those decent coves of their rightful income. Forced them into dishonest behaviour that would never have occurred to them before. Made Adam and Eve partake of the apple. It would have been alright if you’d just gone on nattering to yourself in the pubs and workshops of the country, so long as you had continued to shell out your 5op for a copy of ‘Sam’s tits’ and Kardashian’s latest ‘heel caught in a drain pipe’ exclusive. But you couldn’t do that, you put your words into print and left them with a 40% decline in revenue."
It is the web, not the press, that must be brought under control

Theresa May makes a weak argument on the Communications Data Bill
"Case one: A paedophile [sic] website, where not every user was jailed because certain data was not available.
Alternative solution: A website is distributing illegal child pornography [sic]. Use existing RIPA powers to ask service providers to record every person visiting it, producing as much data as the police require [that is, if the police are not running it]."

Clegg and May in cyber war
By THERESA MAY, Home Secretary
COUNTRIES across the world are taking action now to help them track paedophiles [sic] and terrorists who abuse new technology to plot their horrific [sic] crimes.
We must not get left behind. You and your loved ones have the right to expect the government to protect you from harm [sic].
Politicians from all parties have agreed that new laws are needed to help the police keep pace with changing technology. Parliament has made suggestions about how our plans could be improved and we will accept the substance of its recommendations.
But Sun readers should know that I will not allow these vitally important laws to be delayed any longer in this Parliament.
This law is needed and it is needed now. And I am determined to see it through."

We have now considered the committees' recommendations carefully and we will accept the substance of them all. But there can be no delay to this legislation. It is needed by law enforcement agencies now.
