Green Manifesto Sound on Surviellance

The Greens’ manifesto is out and despite its quirks, Techno is pleased to report that the tree-hugging hippies are pretty sound on one issue – digital rights. Highlights include:

  • Opposition to all all secret unaccountable mass surveillance¬†replace RIPA
  • Replace the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act
  • Strengthen data protection laws
  • Oppose the sale of personal data from health or tax records
  • Support Open Standards in IT

Unsurprisingly there are some more outlandish digital policies including a pledge to “prevent patents applying to software.”¬†Good luck with that…
