Internet "black boxes" will be used to collect every email and web visit in the UK under the Government's plans for a giant "big brother" database, The Independent has learnt.
Home Office officials have told senior figures from the internet and telecommunications industries that the "black box" technology could automatically retain and store raw data from the web before transferring it to a giant central database controlled by the Government.

Being from the u.k i feel i have to reply to this thread..
In a way i'm not really worried because i don't download anything illegal,go on any dodgy sites or send nasty emails,like most of the u.k we go about our buisness as usual,
It will help catch criminals on the net and keep a lid on some of the things going on in cyberspace.
On the other hand i don't like being spyed upon when i use the internet..
i think the days of the internet being a place wherewe can talk freely are coming to an end quicker than we thought

Yes, unfortunately, it now seems we are rapidly accelerating down this path.
If it begins to change the way i live my life then yes i care. But more importantly i care for my children i bring into this world. What kind of rights and liberties will be left when they reach adulthood?
