UK: Anger at Ministers' e-Crime Response

Via The BBC.

An influential group of peers has accused the government of putting its "head in the sand" after it rejected their ideas for dealing with e-crime.

But the government did not agree with its suggestion that lawlessness "was rife" on the internet.
