Sometimes the UK Makes the US Look Good
I can't friggin' believe it. Every time I turn around, the UK government is working harder and harder to strip its citizens and residents of every last bastion of privacy. They've admitted CCTV doesn't work and yet keep pushing for more (see many of my previous posts on this topic). They have a draconian national DNA database and the DNA spokesman for the Association of Chief Police Officers recently discussed identifying "problem children" who should have their DNA recorded. Now they're talking about a database with "details of every phone call and e-mail sent in the UK".
