UK surveillance law marks a ‘worse than scary’ shift


Normally, I would just tweet, but this is a move of extreme consequence in my opinion.  One can only imagine that many USA lawmakers will see this move by their British friends as an opportunity to do something similar in “Merca”. According to the new British law, communications companies must maintain a database of every website, social application, and messaging service customers use for one year. Police and intelligence will be able access to it all. Of course, this is being done in the name of protecting the nation from terrorism, but what will be the wider consequences of this level of intrusion on personal privacy?
