Every e-mail in the UK to be monitored!!
« on: October 16, 2008, 09:15:54 am »
The Communications Data Bill (2008) will lead to the creation of a single, centralized database containing records of all e-mails sent, websites visited and mobile phones used by UK citizens. In a carnivore-on-steroids programme, as all vestiges of communication privacy are stripped away, The BBC reports that Home Secretary Jacqui Smith says this is a 'necessity'."

 :o :o :o

Communications Data Bill

The purpose of this Bill is to allow communications data capabilities for the prevention and detection of crime and protection of national security to keep up with changing technology by providing for the collection and retention of such data - including data not required for the business purposes of communications service providers; and to ensure strict safeguards continue to strike the proper balance between privacy and protecting the public.

The main elements of the Bill are:

modify the procedures for acquiring communications data and allow this data to be retained

transpose EU Directive 2006/24/EC on the retention of communications data into UK law

Gee, what took the UK so long?

We've had the same thing in the US for years.

Difference is you merely "inform" subjects, "citizens" you have to lie to.

Oh look, another great example of a loving government protecting it's citizens.  ::) ::) ::)
