I have just read this on the BBC News about the fact that Emails, Text messages and web use will be monitored according to government officials, this is under the legislation that will come into force later this year
However Tory MP David disagrees and called it “an unnecessary extension of the ability of the state to snoop on ordinary people”.
“But it would enable intelligence officers to identify who an individual or group is in contact with, how often and for how long. They would also be able to see which websites someone had visited” (BBC News)
“What this is talking about doing is not focusing on terrorists or criminals, it’s absolutely everybody’s emails, phone calls, web access…” he told the BBC. (BBC News)
The Sunday Times quoted an industry official who warned it would be “expensive, intrusive [and] a nightmare to run legally”.
