Big Brother UK!


As
this article in the Guardian shows, anti terrorism laws are already being used to infringe many of the rights to privacy we previously held. Although they are said to be intended to combat terrorism, agencies and databases are being set up which collect the details of members of the public that do as little as "protest against duck hunting".

I know that there are some people who believe it when they hear that "only people with something to hide would object" to the ever growing list of rights to privacy being stripped away, but how many of us really want to be treated like criminals for expressing our views and standing up for what we feel to be right?
