Jackboot Jacqui is watching YOU
The UK's electronic intelligence agency has taken the highly unusual step of issuing a statement to deny it will track all UK internet and phone use.
Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) said it was developing tracking technology but "only acts when it is necessary" and "does not spy at will".
Of course the biggest electronic spying network in Western Europe doesn't "spy at will".
The denial comes days after Ms Smith ditched plans for a giant centralised database to store all internet and phone conversations.
Instead she announced that communications firms will be asked to record all contacts between people.
The new system would track all e-mails, phone calls and internet use including visits to social network sites, but not their content.
Ri-iiight. We believe you.
Seriously, do politicians inhabit a separate universe from the rest of us? They come out with all this guff but does anybody believe a word of it? Is this the biggest lie since "Arbeit Macht Frei"?
