Invasion of Privacy taken to new heights in the UK

Personal Privacy online has always been a big concern for large groups of people. But any sort of privacy online could be a thing of the past if the government gets its way.

The government is pushing for access to monitor all calls, emails, texts and website visits of everyone in the UK.

ISP’s will be required by law to give the government full and undisclosed, real time feeds of all data transmitted through their servers.

This will means that even sensitive information like passwords, private letters and documents will be broadcast directly to a government feed monitored by “officials”.

Civil liberties groups have been in uproar at the new proposed plans calling it an “outright invasion of privacy”.

Tory MP David Davis called it “an unnecessary extension of the ability of the state to snoop on ordinary people”.
