For those who haven't RTFA, they're pretty much just saying that mobile networks in the UK use NAT for their data connections so there's no way to narrow connections to one user.

Heathrow T5 is for 1st, business and flexible economy tickets, so more people can use this than you might think. And don't believe for a minute it runs faster! Do a search on Google for T5 Fast Track to see the complaints of frequent travellers who are eligible for fast track, many of whom now give it a miss and join the line with the rest of the "economy pleb"s as you put it.
From my own experience, the normal lines primarily have holidaymakers and casual travellers with one piece of hand luggage, whereas "fast track" has buiness travellers with one case and a laptop bag and therefore have to take their laptops AND liquids out of their bags. Thanks to T5's special "everything must go in the trays" design (and these trays are smaller than the maximum permitted hand baggage size!) and the distinct lack of space to prepare this is a massive hold up.
As usual, it's only the average person who is going to be caught by this. I run my own mail and web server. A small sum of money later and I have an SSL certificate and my ISP can no longer see a lot of the information they're supposed to be recording. Or did I just become an ISP by hosting my own services? Am I responsible for maintaining logs about my own communications to be handed over to the police?
The Pirate Bay's VPN system could make a small fortune selling services to the UK populate now.
How much do they pay their advertising staff anyway?

The reason for this court's decision is a recent video that has been published on YouTube.com recently which is said to be insulting Turkish Republic's founder, Mustafa Kemal.
Curiously, this follows on the heels of a 3-4 month long campaign by the ruling party and the media supporting them against the freedom in the internet, citing "internet needs to be 'straightened up'".
All internet users nationwide are met with the below message that apparently emanates from Turkish Telecom DNS server or access filters :
