Big Brother Is Watching You

I have just seen on the BBC news website that the UK government are going to force internet companies to keep a record of every website visited during the past twelve months. And the reason for this intrusion on our personal internet activity, I hear ask, well it's that good old war on terror once again. Yes there are a few mad people in this world plotting on blowing up others, but seriously why does the UK government need to now every website we visit, surely that is an infringement of our human rights. Plus it's a massive burden on the internet providers and is sure to push up costs for consumers even higher. All in all I am totally against this move.

@mrtoffee Or pass their expense to someone else. The consumer we are called. Right now I'm eating it all up but sending it back too right? How can I "use" electricity when it just goes around in a circle? Here they started charging people who requested paper billing. People didn't want to be charged for their bills. What nerve.

@mrtoffee No good without bad or vice versa. She was saying the police found paedophile ring and there were something like 18 people they couldn't identify but if they'd had the data on internet usage, they would have been able to get them. If that means the 'authorities' can see my Mylot pages and my amazon shopping, then I think it's a small price to pay.

Oh no, why keep track of all the websites? Is it not that the technologies today are very updated that they should be able to track whatever they need in a nick of time? Why keep record and intrude? It will be affecting the server provider also, right?
