The UK's domestic-facing intelligence agency, MI5, today admitted that it captured and read Privacy International's private data as part of its Bulk Communications Data (BCD) and Bulk Personal Datasets (BPD) programmes, which hoover up massive amounts of the public's data. In further startling legal disclosures, all three of the UK's primary intelligence agencies - GCHQ, MI5, and MI6 - also admitted that they unlawfully gathered data about Privacy International or its staff.

For those you who don't know what Privacy International:

Privacy International (PI) is a UK-based registered charity[2] that defends and promotes the right to privacy across the world.

Reminds me of this video:

It seems the UK is slowly about to become a society similar to 1984 and V for Vendetta.

Have you got a source that actually shows MI5 have made this admission?

Privacy International seem to be focussing on a judgement by the European Court of Human Rights which they say proves some point, or other. The PI website is quite confusing, but they seem to be hanging their views of a case that was ruled upon earlier this month...

I challenge anyone here to read this judgement and come up with the same conclusion as PI!!!

]]ECHR case and confused ruling

British Signal Intelligence (SigInt) spy agency GCHQ broke the law so badly that they begged President Trump not to release a specific document to the public last week.

It's looking like neither M15 or GCHQ deserve their lofty reputations.

It’s was reported that GHCQ recruited it’s own “cyber soldiers” several years ago. Their main job was to influence opinions and control the narrative on social media platforms. As well as gather information on potential dissident groups and individuals.

What GHCQ apparently didn’t realise is how obvious and inept these agents are.
