They're trying again. As the article states, the last bill attempt faced opposition and was defeated, so why are they having a second go?
The key thing to remember is that this is warrantless. No permission, no oversight. I'm of the belief that they're already doing this anyway and have
since 9/11, so god knows what they're up to if there's now a 'public' bill for it. It wouldn't have to be limited to 'terrorism' - infact, terrorism
could be anything they want it to be.
Planning a demonstration at a nuclear plant? Going to protest some government action? They'll know everything about you and your friends. They already
do this through non-private means like monitoring social networking sites, but this'll go behind that and into your personal life.
It'll also be interesting to see how the current conservative lot vote for this, seeing how they denied it last time, most likely because it
originated from Labour. Bet it'll be the reverse this time, ridiculous politics.
Will try to find some more links, but it's hardly surprising to even see it reported in the news
