Some predictions of possible consequences of the Strasbourg Big Brother Watch judgment for the Investigatory Powers Act. #IPAct 1/6
1. Oversight of entire bulk interception selection process from start (bearer selection) through middle (selectors etc) to end (analyst searches etc).

Public description of nature and granularity of oversight at each stage. Perhaps doable within current #IPAct framework. 2/6
2. Selection of related communications data (secondary data in #IPAct terms) for purposes other than ascertaining whether someone is currently within the British Islands.

#IPAct amendment. May sound technical, but this is potentially a significant issue. 3/6
3. Journalistic communications and sources.

#IPAct amendment. Some provisions appear to suffer from the narrowness to which the Strasbourg Court objected in #RIPA. 4/6
These issues will no doubt be ventilated in @libertyhq's pending judicial review of the #IPAct. Things may become clearer then. And don't forget potential impact on a Brexit data protection adequacy decision. 5/6
In the meantime, my initial impressions of the Strasbourg judgment explaining the three points above.… 6/6
