Legal "Britain's spy agency GCHQ has secretly gained access to the network of cables which carry the world's phone calls and internet traffic and has started to process vast streams of sensitive personal information which it is sharing with its American partner, the National Security Agency. The sheer scale of the agency's ambition is reflected in the titles of its two principal components: Mastering the Internet and Global Telecoms Exploitation, aimed at scooping up as much online and telephone traffic as possible. This is all being carried out without any form of public acknowledgement or debate." Woah.

At the end of the day if you have nothing to hide then I really do not see the problem! It sure beats living in a country where you fear for your life every day because the real loonies are never caught!

I youu have nothing to hide you shouldn't have curtains at your home?

If you have nothing to hide you shouldn't mind remotely controlled cameras and microphones in every room at home and at work, yes?

If you have nothing to hide you shouldn't mid the instrumentality of a police state being set up?

Being over 60, I'm glad I won't live long enough to see the world you seem willing to accept.
