Who watches the watchers?


A nice story in the Mail…

The astonishing extent of Britain’s surveillance society was revealed for the first time yesterday.

Three million snooping operations have been carried out over the past decade under controversial anti-terror laws.

They include tens of thousands of undercover missions by councils and other state bodies which are not responsible for law enforcement.

 Cases include a family who were spied on to check they were not cheating on school catchment area rules and so-called ‘bin criminals’.

The campaign group Justice is demanding the hugely controversial Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act – under which all the operations were authorised – be scrapped altogether.

LOL…

The Mail have more front than Blackpool…

Do they include their own people in this? You know, the ones that hacked into other people’s mobile ‘phones?

I think they should get rid of RIPA too… gets in the way of some old fashioned policing by stealth…

heh…
