The Assistance and Access Bill was passed in late 2018 but despite its nickname "the encryption bill" it promotes insecurity and a dangerous global precedent, says the Independent National Security Legislation Monitor. Expecting Parliament to commence a review of the bill today, Internet Australia calls for the INSLM recommendations to be accepted.

This is an unbearably good headline :-)

5G will save us, and the NBN will have to be redone anyway.
As always, a great article Sam.
I will never forgive him.
