Abstract

The Investigatory Powers Bill, currently progressing through the Commons, has been defended on the basis that only those with something to hide have anything to fear from the extended surveillance powers. But Nat Rutherford writes that this argument is based on a minimal liberal understanding of freedom, and if we take a broader view, the new Bill poses a considerable threat to our freedom in the UK.
