Tony Blair's New Snoopers Charter - Blanket Surveillance For All

Recommended Posts

A handful of unelected peers have taken the language of an old and discredited Internet surveillance proposal, and attempted to slam it, at outrageously short notice, into the wording of a near-complete counter-terrorism bill.

The result is that, unless you take action to warn Britain's House of Lords in time for the debate on Monday 26th January, there is a good chance that Britain will pass the infamous Snooper's Charter into law with barely any oversight.

On Thursday, Lords Blair, King, West, and Carlile delivered over eighteen pages of amendments to the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act, which is currently being debated in Britain's upper house, the House of Lords.

Their amendments are the core of the previously proposed, and rejected, Communications Data Bill, which would require ISPs to harvest and store data taken from their subscribers' online traffic, and hand this over to the government without a warrant.

That Blair's claim to fame is that he was chief henchman of The Liar's police state. Didn't realise he'd been ennobled.

Our police would love the powers of the Gestapo, can't be too long until they get them.
