“In December, the UK government Coalition came up with plans to monitor and track every email, and web site visit, as well as when, where, and to and from whom a text or phone call was made, for every Briton.
These plans were stalled last December by the Labour Government, but now the Home Office has decided to revive them, despite the Coalition Agreement to “end the storage of Internet and email records without good reason”.
There will be no “super database” as once thought, but many different service providers will store each Briton’s details for a certain amount of time. That way the security as well as police can track the phone calls, emails, text messages and website visits which each citizen makes, as long as they make the claim that there was a need to do so because of terrorism or crime.”
We’ll see whose data are going to be visible for the Govt: the ones of normal citizens or of criminals. Because the latter know how to avoid internet controls, but normal citizens are not worried about their trail on Internet.
