Government snoopers smust be stopped

From my weblog, but duplicated here 'cos it's scary:

A headline (Government sweeps aside privacy rights) and a leader (British Liberty, RIP) from today's Guardian. It's not just the Police, Intelligence services, and the tax authorities who can get at anyone's telephone and internet communications data without a warrant or court order, but seven Whitehall departments, every local authority in the country, NHS bodies in Scotland and Northern Ireland, and 11 other public bodies ranging from the postal services commission to the food standards agency....

But it seems it's all necessary to continue the War on Terrorism. So that's all right, then.
