UK Snoopers' Charter raises its ugly head again

Friday, 14 June, 2013 (All day)

AUTHORITARIAN POLITICIANS have gathered to pen a letter to the Times that says we must put up with blanket internet surveillance technology if we are to be saved from "terrorism".

UK Pirate Party leader Loz Kaye said that earlier rumours of the death of the so-called Snoopers' Charter had been exaggerated. He appealed to the politicians, adding that the Communications Bill should be rejected for very real reasons.

"After the Queen's speech I warned about the danger of a Snoopers' Charter reboot. Now politicians from Labour and the Conservatives want to do exactly that, and are calling for the return of the Communications Data Bill," he said
