Earlier this month, Robert Hannigan, the director of <a href="http://www.gchq.gov.uk/Pages/homepage.aspx">GCHQ</a>, a British intelligence agency, wrote <a href="http://www.ft.com/intl/cms/s/2/c89b6c58-6342-11e4-8a63-00144feabdc0.html#axzz3I6mVHFpK">an opinion piece</a> in the <em>Financial Times</em> castigating tech companies for being "in denial" about abuses of their platforms by criminals and terrorists and calling on them to develop better arrangements for facilitating lawful government investigations.
