Let me get this right… the government controversially gave the police powers to hack into computer systems to secure evidence in the course of investigations, on the authority of a senior officer. And now the police have used those powers to hack into… Number 10’s systems?

Though you have to wonder: if the Met can hack into government systems, why can’t… er… pretty much anybody else? Also: do we take it that Number 10 doesn’t routinely encrypt files, or that the Met can…

…Blimey. Get the popcorn, this is interesting.
