The UK IT industry and party politics

"What are YOU doing to help educate and interest YOUR MP in why the contribution of our industry to modern society is so important and in what they need to do to help ensure that boring things, like our communications infrastructure (as essential to the health and wealth of 21st century society as clean supply and efficient drains were to Victorian England) are fit for purpose, that policies on issues like Data Protection, Identity Management are based on practical experience not theoretical fantasy and that restrictions on civil liberties, like the extension of detention without trial, are not blamed on ICT (time to decrypt computer files) without evidence that the changes would make a commensurate difference to public safety." —Philip Virgo
