Spies 'R Us - 1400 Times a Day
Nanny has turned Britain into a surveillance society, as recently released figures show that public bodies had obtained access to private telephone and e-mail records about 1,400 times a day.
Council, police and other organisations have made more than half a million requests for confidential communications data last year, representing a 44% rise in requests.
Have we all become a nation of criminals?
Or, as is more likely, has Nanny decided that it is "in our own best interests" that she spy on us?
The Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act (RIPA) is being misused by Nanny, against ordinary citizens; instead of against the "suspected terrorists", which we were told it was designed for.
The figures showing this alarming rise in state surveillance were compiled by Sir Paul Kennedy, the Interception of Communications Commissioner.
In 2008 Nanny issued guidelines on the use of the powers, in theory these guidelines should have prevented the misuse of RIPA. However, as the figures show, the guidelines are in effect being ignored.
Just so that the point is clear, one in every 78 adults in the UK has been/is now being watched by the state.
The state is the enemy of the people.
