UK Gone Wild: We Will Keep Records of Everything

by Irma Arkus

The latest and greatest news of surveillance totalitarianism that is UK, comes in a form of unabashed request of UK Government to maintain a database “recording every text, email and browsing session.” The reasoning? To curb crime, of course.

Further information of this outrageous new proposal, see Matthew Sparkes at PCProarticle.

The information is to become available to public officials and variety of investigative bodies. Question begs – will these monitor private companies as well? Will the information of private corporations suddenly belong in public domain? All correspondence available for review? This also brings us to yet another question – will they clamp on white collar crime now?!!!
