WEB Notes: Do you see how this is always presented to us? The poor tech companies had no choice in the matter. Whatever the case maybe your best interests are not at heart here. More and more of our freedom and privacy are being flushed down the drain.

Internet giants face a multimillion-pound tax raid unless they agree to help combat the terrorist threat to ­Britain, which is at its worst “for 100 years”, the security minister revealed last night.

Ben Wallace accused internet firms of being “ruthless profiteers” that cost government a fortune by failing to assist the security ­ser­vices in identifying terrorists and stamping out extremism online.

In an interview with The Sunday Times, Wallace said reliance on the internet means Britain is vul­nerable to terrorists and rogue states, admitting: “That’s what keeps me awake at night. We are more vulnerable than at any point in the last 100 years.”
