Big Sister Gets Her Snooper’s Charter: UK Becomes Most Spied On Democracy

Big Sister Theresa May

Snoopers Charter – the name given to the Investigatory Powers Bill that is about to make the UK the most spied on democracy in the world and which China pointed to as an example when formulating their own internet spying program.

All of your internet history will be stored for 12 months, making you a suspect before any crime is actually suspected. Your device and social media accounts can be hacked by the authorities following a “warrant” or swallowed in a “bulk hacking” if they want to find a single piece of information. And if they can’t do it themselves, device makers and social network owners must help grant them access, breaking all consumer privacy agreements.

With a government that has lost data in the past and preached about cyber terrorism, does this make us safer or more vulnerable? And when the MI5’s of the world have been spying on the quiet for years and doing very shady things with their intelligence, what is the real agenda at hand?

      for starters, how about publicizing all your elected representatives that approved of this and putting them on the never-vote-them-again blacklist?

    If we allow the system to record our boring internet useage, then it can also detect all the really bad dudes planning their heinous acts. We don’t need to worry if they spot our political or social interests or even visits to adult porn sites, we can go where we want, no one cares. However the pedos, stalkers, money launderers, terrorists and other criminals, should be observed to protect us all. Luvvie liberals need to chillax, give up a little secrecy, its no big deal for us, but a wonderful tool against the real bad guys. Go for it, Big Sister ! .

      only one tiny little hole in this amazing plan : what if the criminals are ALREADY at the top of the system and you just gave the bad guys sweeping powers to monitor and prevent anybody from removing them from power?

    bobl – You are right we should give up our rights in order to catch all the the
    tershts. A journalist once said privacy is for paedophiles.
