Yair Cohen BBC interview on new investigatory powers in the UK

Last year Security Services in the United States told Yahoo
it had to create and install a backdoor system to its email operations system
so that it will be made easier for the state to spy on users’ data when spying becomes
a necessity. Both the US government and Yahoo were criticised at the time but a
year on and the UK government is about to pass a law which will require all telecommunication
to build into any service they develop a backdoor entry for the government. This
sounds bad but it might after all not be such a bad idea because at least when data
spying is being governed by law, this allows to create checks and balances on a
far more transparent basis than currently exists.
