The UK Government has put forward draft legislation which, if enacted, would allow live surveillance of British web users. The legislation would form a new part of the existing Investigatory Powers Act. BBC News has more:

The paper was allegedly leaked to civil liberties body the Open Rights Group, which received the document on 4 May.

The Home Office denied there was anything new in the consultation.

Phone companies and internet service providers would be asked to provide "data in near real time" within one working day, according to one clause in the technical capabilities paper.

Such access would need to be sanctioned by secretaries of state and a judge appointed by the prime minister.

I suppose in this uncertain world today this has to happen, I personally regret this but with the uncertainty of security of the nation it will have to happen for the security of the many and the fear of the few.:cry: So much for a free nation for the many and the freedom of the of the few who wish to destroy our way of life and our freedom of religion or none at all. It is a great shame this has to happen but it is inevitable.:cry::cry::cry:
