'Our deadhead E-ENVOY finally responded to the hundreds of complaints about RIP sent to his office, by talking to a bunch of Americans about it. He said that some Britons were worried that RIP allowed "snooping on all e-mail traffic", and added the reality was "very different". He also got the name of the bill wrong, which may mean he's in a different reality himself. Some clues to this parallel universe: the same week, he told MPs that there was no reverse burden of proof in the Bill. Which is odd, because days later Lord Bassam gave an amendment which removed the nonexistent reverse burden.' link
