That’s according to clueless fucktard Patrick O’Donovan, Fine Gael TD for Limerick. Here’s a tip for you Patrick — when you don’t understand what you’re being told, fact-check it with at least two other independent people in the field. You fucking buffoon.
Fine Gael TD for Limerick, Patrick O’ Donovan has called for tougher controls on the use of open source internet browsers and payment systems which allow users to remain anonymous in the illegal trade of drugs, weapons and pornography. Deputy O’Donovan has written to the Oireachtas Communications Committee, of which he is a member, asking it to investigate the matter.
“An online black market is operating which protects the users’ anonymity and operates across borders through the use of open source internet browers and payments systems which allow users to remain anonymous. This effectively operates as an online supermarket for illegal goods such as drugs, weapons and pornography, where it is extremely difficult to trace the identity of the buyers. We need a national and international response to clamp down on this illicit trade.
This is what happens when you let people with not a clue discuss technical things like technology or banking or indeed anything at all really. There are a couple of very noisy politicians that harp on and on and on and pronounce about things they really don’t understand and demand “something” be done…I despair sometimes
