Government will spy on every call and e-mail - Times Online

Ministers are considering spending up to £12 billion on a database to monitor and store the internet browsing habits, e-mail and telephone records of everyone in Britain.
GCHQ, the government’s eavesdropping centre, has already been given up to £1 billion to finance the first stage of the project. Hundreds of clandestine probes will be installed to monitor customers live on two of the country’s biggest internet and mobile phone providers - thought to be BT and Vodafone.
Officials claim live monitoring is necessary to fight terrorism and crime.

Time to crank up the spam creator, a couple of million emails everyday mentioning Gordon, pitchforks, tar and hempen rope seem to be called for. And for homework today take a course in Steganography and learn how to use it

Well with the latest generations of browsers being released with cacheless browsing included, the "Righteous" have to have some easy way of proving that we're all paedophiles.

Encryption is your friend.


And so we frog march on to the society they have planned.

GCHQ must be full of very bored people. If everyone puts trigger words in their email signatures and texts their servers will soon get overloaded. Bring back carrier pigeons! Snail mail rules!

They have been promising this for years. Big Brother slowly takes hold.

love the message tim

Here in the US we will have to substitute nylon rope, it is illegal to import hempen rope from Canada - might still have one cannabis seed per thousand yards, you know. How different from WWII - someone recently posted a 1943 US Government fillm about the need for more such rope, with advice for farmers about growing the hemp.

Just today I saw a story about how here in the USSA (United Socialist States of America) that data mining doesn't work. Too many false positives. DUH! So, just add Goaste/Tub Girl to all correspondence. Make those government workers earn their keep! For the Good of the Body and all!
