6:53 pm
the cloud and things like that. we wa nt the cloud and things like that. we want them to recognise they have a responsibility to engage with government, or law—enforcement agencies, when there is the terrorist situation. we would do it all through the carefully thought through, legally covered arrangements, but they cannot get away with saying that they are a different situation and cause they are not. the ceo of apple have said it would be wrong for them to pretend he‘s back doors. but without that, you would be able to access them. i would ask him to think again. we need other ways to get out of the situations this is why i am calling on a lot of the organisation to relevant to that this week to ask them to work with us this week to ask them to work with us to develop the answer. it is not about them standing back from others. this is a national problem. who are you calling them? i would rather not go into that. it is a
