It seems more like she's declaring herself as the expert and that the tech companies are the ones who don't know what they're talking about.

Just strawberry float off. Anyone can learn the basic principles in less than a day. If you can't be bothered then resign and let someone else do your job.

Theresa May insists she has 'full support' of cabinet after leadership challenge

Theresa May has responded to claims of a plot involving Tory MPs to oust her from Number 10, saying she is providing "calm leadership" with the "full support" of her cabinet.

Speaking in her Maidenhead constituency, the Prime Minister told reporters she had "had a cold all week".

But she insisted all ministers backed her to remain in the top job.

Mrs May's comments follow former party chairman Grant Shapps' claim that he and 30 other MPs - including "one or two cabinet ministers" - had agreed to call on her to resign.

strawberry float off Amber :fp:

She's literally saying that you can have an encryption backdoor without having a backdoor, because she doesn't even begin to understand how encryption works.
She insisted she does not want "back doors" installed in encryption codes, something the industry has warned will weaken security for all users, nor did she want to ban encryption, just to allow easier access by police and the security services.

What the strawberry float does she think that is if not a backdoor?


The BBC interview with her at the Tory conference was a funny. I forget the exact example she used for it, but she said she claimed she doesn't actually need to know about these things at all.

She also said it wasn't about encryption, but getting personal info from Whatsapp to aid in crime prevention.

She hasn't a hope in hell.

The one thing standing between us and a dystopia is the fact that Tories understand less about technology than my nan

Our governing political party are turning into a badly written High School drama.

I don't know whether to laugh or cry.

After Hammond's piece in the Times today on not budgeting for no deal, who do we think will get the sack first - Hammond or Johnson?

Agreed, much less danger for her in sacking him than sacking Johnson.

Maybe he feels he's already out and so he's washing his hands of the whole mess before he gets pushed. I really fear for us if this is the case, someone who's all aboard the Brexit hype train in charge of the economy would be a disaster.
