Big brother is watching you....

Impatient with getting its Snooper's Charter through Parliament - and sharing even more of our personal data with Brussels - the government has resorted to obtaining confidential information from the Americans -

"Britain’s listening post GCHQ has been secretly gathering intelligence from some of the world’s biggest internet firms through America’s National Security Agency. ....GCHQ, based in Cheltenham, has had access to the system since at least June 2010, and generated 197 intelligence reports from it last year.....the intelligence agency is able to circumvent UK restrictions on accessing people’s communications by obtaining the same information via the US authorities.....the news suggested the British Government was trying to introduce the Data Communications Bill....'by the back door'."

Journalists have now been threatened with prosecution if they continue to report on this underhand activity.
