Tech Companies Face Criminal Charges If They Notify Users of UK Government Spying

Last week, Yahoo became the latest company promising to alert users who it suspected were being targeted by state-sponsored attacks (excepting Microsoft, who made a similar announcement just today). Twitter, Facebook and Google had previously assured their users that they would be warned of any potential government spying. The UK, it seems, isn't happy about this. They are pushing through a bill that will punish the leaders of any company that warns its users about British snooping with up to two years in prison. Specifically, UK ministers want to make it a criminal offense for tech firms to warn users of requests for access to their communication data made by security organizations such as MI5, MI6 and GCHQ.

Hahahaha... and all the tech firms leave the UK. The States has already lost billions in revenue because of their OCD need to play secret agent man.
UK to follow suit by cutting off their nose to spite their own face just like big brother US.
Privacy schmivacy.

If they don't know by now that they are being spied on then it is because they have swallowed the blue pill and you will never convince them what is going on and they deserve to be spied on.

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor
