UK surveillance review - e.g Tor hidden services

Interesting indication of how SAFE might be perceived from UK terrorism watchdog review (I think):

Tor hidden services “potentially sinister” but not feasible to outlaw in UK.

I haven’t read report, just picking up quotes from twitter.

From the same Twitter quote:

“it is clear that at least some of these web sites … host criminal markets”

So, the Onion network is 100% identical to the Internet (WWW).
Then, because “at least some” users engage in illegal stuff, all should be molested.
Makes complete sense to me.

Better read the report I think, or at least some reviews/summaries as it is 373 pages, its getting some positive comment inside and out of government, and is the first proposal from someone who has consistently been willing to challenge the government and spy agencies over “security” measures. He was pretty damning over the treatment of journalist David Miranda (who was detained as a terrorist when transiting through London between meeting Laura Poitras and returning to Brazil and his partner/colleague Glenn Greenwald).
