|UK Prime Minister has been urged to protect the election system against hacking, following the widespread accusations of interference in the US presidential election. The UK officials questioned whether the government of the country was doing enough to protect against online threats.
However, Theresa May said that it was a task of individual political parties to protect themselves against hacking. Even if major parties care about their protection, government agencies have not offered them any help in the wake of the US election hacking.
In the meantime, concerns about hacking by foreign powers aggravated after the US expelled 35 Russian diplomats and released a report detailing leaking of Democratic party emails. The UK is not the only country to have such concerns – for example, French political parties are being advised by the security services on how to protect against hacking. This is why some British officials believe that the government should take the threat seriously and do more to help protect political parties from cyber attack.
As a result, the joint committee on the UK’s national security strategy started an inquiry into digital security, emphasizing the potential for foreign powers to engage in hacking. In response, the Cabinet Office pointed to several references in the cybersecurity strategy of the country regarding protecting the United Kingdom from hacking for political purposes. They say that the political parties do not automatically get assistance from the intelligence agencies or police in improving their security, but they could get advice and support if they ask for it.

|Come on man!!! There was no Russian hacking. This is easily the biggest and most obvious lie the U.S. Government has perpetrated since they said that Iraq had Weapons of Mass Distruction. The U.S. has absolutely no proof at all that Russia was behind the hacks and it is all based on speculation. It's absolutely ridiculous. To actually come out and say that Putin himself gave the order for the hacks is the kicker that should tell you that this is all a big freaking lie! They have absolutely zero proof that Russia was behind the attack and yet the actually come out and say that Putin gave the order. What a joke!!!!|
Wake the hell up people. This lie is so obvious it's not even funny.
I support Trump in the fullest but that has nothing to do with why I don't believe this Russian hacking bullcrap. I simply know when I'm being lied to and this is easily the biggest lie the government and media has pulled on the American people since that WMD bullcrap which I also knew was a freakin lie.
|Keep the fear coming, and the masses in line. Its all about control.|

|It's impossible for the actual vote count to be hacked, since it is so decentralized on the state and local level. Oh, boo hoo; several unknown parties hacked into personal email accounts exposing the lies and fraud of the Democrat Party. If you are doing nothing wrong then you have nothing to hide, right?|
The only election fraud was perpetrated by the millions of illegal immigrants and repeat voters for Clinton, and she still lost. If not for that then I believe that the popular vote count was closer to even or actually in favor of Trump.
|the only time us election where hacked when obama got elected to office for second term.|
|haha well they should be|
|I'm surprised that only comments here are from conspiracy theorists! I guess we can now determine that the freeloaders voted for Trump.|
|Wow, the delusion is strong here.|
A few questions
1. Why is it implausible that Putin would order the hacking of the DNC? The guy is former KGB, feeds propaganda to his citizens, and has silenced political rivals and members of the press. Seems right up his ally
2. What evidence do you have of voter fraud? This has been a Republican talking point for as long as I can remember and yet every time there's an investigation the claims prove unfounded.
3. Don't you think it suspicious that the DNC emails were leaked and not the RNC emails? Both the DNC and the RNC admit to being hacked, yet you the DNC emails were released. Do you believe there's nothing incriminating within the RNC (Because then you're an idiot)
I suppose I could go on, but that should be enough to prove the stupidity of your statements (not to you of course, because you're either a paid troll or too far gone to reach)
|Excuse me voters, could I just distract you for a second....... morons....|

|Nothing but an excuse to ease the DP pain from the embarrassing lose.|
|When I voted for the primaries in the US. I wore magnets (N48s) because I thought of the Danish voting booth method of hacking (remote viewing). There was something strange with the cops across the street after I got out of the school building when I voted... I cannot say anything because maybe it was nothing.|
|oh my god im so sick of this crap and they really need to stop accusing russia of hacking the voting system its getting really annoying trump won get over it|
|@NiGHTSfan No one is accusing Russia of hacking the voting system (anymore, after the recount in Wisconsin showed no signs of tampering we let that go). We're accusing the Russians of hacking DNC and RNC emails (The hacking is verified, and all American intelligence agencies point to Russia as the soucre) and using the information and propaganda to interfere the the US election on behalf of Donald Trump (Because, one would have to assume, of some sort of ties between Trump and Putin)|
|To all the easily led people: Do you have any evidence it was Russia that did the hacking?|
|Comrade Trump... Velcome To Moscow. Vwee hope your stay here is enjoyable. Please ignore the camera's in your vroom. We have installed them to record you and use the recordings as blackmail during your presidency... Hail Putin|
|All about BS. People, move on and stop believing everything you hear. Do your homework. It's called reasoning and understanding and most of all Facts. So many people believe and act on almost everything the see and read on the internet. Wake the F up. The would is starting to fall into a deep sleep. Population will kill the human race one day. Not enough resources and too many babies. The poor in America screw and have babies and collect welfare. Can't even take care of there own kids without tax payers fitting the bill. Freakin sad.|
|I agree chilen|
|the same intelligence commitees that wore under oath that no intelligence agencies wer/are secrectly collecting data n US citizens? Orthe same intelligence commitees swearing to the house oversight that they only armed "moderate muslims" in Lybia,Yemen, and Syria. So we only armed the porption of muslims that are truly non violent believers and would only pickup a weapon under the most extreme conditions. im not saying all muslims are violent. Im saying the the majority of non violent muslims would not even consider taking up arms especially for polictical reasons. Putin is a fanatical nationalist and cyber espionage is a big tool in his wheel house but to think our agenicies are not engaged in misinformation for financal/political goals(not for american security and way of life)is either plain ignorance of what they do or complicity of what they do||
