It was only a matter of time ... I do prefer the Govt option, of getting the ISP's to store data, and hand it out when the police, and security services request specific details

Much the same as the telecoms, Banks, and IR, do !!

This is snooping. That's what it will be called by many people right now... later they will call it something like... A Citizen safety information retrieval system, or some such cooked up name.

It'll be a bit like renaming Speed Cameras to Safety Cameras.

They won't be able to "snoop" . they need a reason to call the files ...same as getting your mobile phone records, or bank transaction details .......

aah... right. Do people in the UK actually believe that then?

That'll be like the councils 'not' using street surveillance cameras to snoop for non violent minor offences (littering, dog fouling in parks) when, no matter how people feel about the rights and wrongs of such use, the guidance states that they should not be used for such purposes. Yet the system was abused because it was in place and therefore could be abused.

When the mechanism is in place it will be abused by those in authority at some point in time, no matter what the law says.

So when we visit pirate bay or any other source of material for download all this will be logged then sold on or handed on a plate to the likes of mgm and sony etc :(
No doubt the hackers will gain a lot of valuable info from this store and like the dvla does,sell it on for peanuts with lame reasons as to the validity of why.

This is indeed the way our government seems to do things now.

I remember a little old guy who dared to heckle Tony Blair at a conference, he was DRAGGED out by security and charged under the then recently introduced anti terror laws!
I have little doubt that most people are in favour of a law to catch and prosecute terrorists, but am not so sure of the support a law to stop little old guys having their say at labour party conferences would get.

All the best,

How is it the govenments business how I use the internet.

They tell us this is for our safety to protect us from terrorists. The terrorists are the people who this government let in to Britain (be it immigrants or asylum seekers). Therefore they created the terrorist threat. If we kept them out, there would be no "perceived" need for this.

Perhaps therefore we need protection from New Labour.

My questions to this would be:-

1. If my work emails are being held then who breaks the official secrets act, my discussion on restricted/confidential/ commercial in confidence with a supplier/customer or them for reading it without our knowledge/consent?

2. How do they record my IM's unless a key logger is used?
