The Online Safety Bill requires ALL online speech to be monitored for “harmful content”, including your private conversations with friends and family.

(note: I linked to the Open Rights Group page on this, who are a great organisation)

Britons should watch out for the “Online Safety Bill”, which threatens their (and potentially everyone else’s) privacy, security/safety and free speech with backdoors, surveillance and censorship.

It’s also a guilt trip/thought stopping strategy. It’s designed to make anyone who supports E2EE look like they’re pedophiles or pedophile sympathesizers and effectively kills any discourse on the matter.
