Big Brother Comes to the UK

The end of privacy? Well, some would say it ended long ago. Every phone call, email and internet click stored by 'state spying' databases - Telegraph
All telecoms companies and internet service providers will be required by law to keep a record of every customer's personal communications, showing who they are contacting, when, where and which websites they are visiting.

Despite widespread opposition over Britain's growing surveillance society, 653 public bodies will be given access to the confidential information, including police, local councils, the Financial Services Authority, the Ambulance Service, fire authorities and even prison governors.
It doesn't matter what the people want. It is all about what Government wants.

I should have watched V for Vendetta on November the 5th. “The Truth is, there is something terribly wrong with this country.”
