Police State Britain - New Powers To 'Snoop' on Emails And Calls
Is this the TIPPING POINT in the sheer mountain of legislation our Corporate Government has been quietly laying the foundation for since the military landline or internet was 'given away for free' to You The People?
All quotes below from a SKY EDITORIAL on the issue.
The Communications and Data Bill will allow the police and security services to keep track of who is calling whom on mobile phones, the email addresses of all correspondents, and the personal IDs of people chatting on social networking sites.

While this legislation is (officially) aimed at 'legitimate terrorist groups' etc. (unofficially, or rather functionally) it's still a Global Catchall that shows, for each and every email, phone or internet user, who we're connected to and what we say to them and about others.
Truth is, it's probably been going on for decades; now they're just slipping it into (Totalitarian) law so you'll know they're not fucking about any more.
"This policy will track every email we send, every Facebook message and log every website we visit in a way that no other democratic country does," said Nick Pickles, director of Big Brother Watch .

"It is not for innocent people to justify why the Government should not spy on them.

"All we have heard from the Home Office is scaremongering and cheap rhetoric that has wholly failed to address the serious civil liberties concerns, feasibility questions or even say how much it will cost."

Happy yet?
