Death of snoopers’ charter is cautiously welcomed

Friday, 26 April, 2013 (All day)

OPPONENTS OF THE INTRUSIVE UK snoopers' charter Communications Bill haven't been celebrating since Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg said he won't support it.

While Clegg and his Lib Dem party are convinced that this is the end of the bill, UK Pirate Party leader Loz Kaye cautiously welcomed the news.

"This proposal should never have come forward in the first place, it would turn us all from citizens into suspects. I hope this is indeed the good news we are promised. Let's wait for the final evidence, you'll forgive me for being sceptical about LibDem pledges," he said.
