You just know this isn't going to be good for the "people"

Government now says it wants bill passed 'in its current form'

Whenever the government wants something rushed through and uses the "National Security" card you just know that it is not going to be beneficial to the general population.

I can't wait for the next two instalments... somewhere in the wings there will be a high profile paedophile and an organised crime case where the investigations will be hampered by the accused using encrypted communications. A recent story cites 15000 intercepted calls and 10000 text messages to be used as evidence. If the "terrorists" were using encrypted messaging why would they have had so many "insecure" communications.
