Is "Big Brother" watching?

A legislative law to give permission to security agencies to have unrestricted access to online /offline activities of the british public is to be passed by the house of parliament.

Right or Wrong ?

Emergency laws which will authorise the police and other security services to read emails, text, listen to telephone calls and generally have unrestricted access to the internet activities of the public is to be "rushed" through the United Kingdom parliament this thursday.

The legislation has the approval of the three major political parties in the UK and so most of the law makers are in support of this law.

The British prime minister, David Cameron, has advocated that this law will keep the citizens safer and give relevant authorities to enhance security in all areas. As a result of the recent discoveries of a number of british citizens travelling to some countries to train to fight as militants and terrorists and the threats being issued against the british people, emergency measures including this have been proposed and some will be implemented once they are approved by the house of parliament.

So this means that internet data, patterns, use of members of the public will now be monitored, analysied and stored where necessary to prevent reduce and/or delays in security agencies investigating unusual /suspicious activites.

So is this snooping on the public or a measure to deal with serious and organised criminal activity?

Privacy is an illusion I'm afraid.

Legislation should help not hinder the lives of people.

Very true, cnwriter..carolina

I wonder how they powers that be would fare if the public had access to their private conversations. .. Plenty of scandals would be found out.

That is true also, this issue is like 2 sides of a coin, as long as it is applied to both the high and those in authority, then I am half up for it.
