Yes it's true, starting tomorrow all residents of the UK will have every action they perform online monitored, recorded and stored by the government for a year. Any illegal actions you perform online will now be recorded and no doubt you will get prosecuted asap. The worst thing is, you can tell it won't be this one off, it'l become standard, always happening.

Fucking disturbing really. Not to mention a right bore as you can no longer obtain, how shall we say, New to the US Tv shows.

More proof were turning into a Big Brother state.

I saw a documentary a year or so ago about this guy who has modified his digital video camera into something similar which the government uses which can 'splice' into webcams, security camera's and the rest. He was going to every shop with camera's in his local area informing people that the government do this.

Its only a few years until we turn into a V For Vendetta style society run by 'The Head'.

Big Brother is watching.

I'm stockpiling kiddy porn for when Australia goes down this path.

Well, it's started. While it has been clarified they won't read the content of a persons emails, it is still quite disturbing. It's also said they don't look at what you did exactly online, just what web pages you visited. None the less, going to have to see how this plays out.

Solution: Start a new country with personal liberties and a free market, then when all the immigrants go there to work, and everyone wants to invest their money there, the staists will see the error of their ways.

Keeping all our search details and the like is not a new thing, your internet provider has always stored every keystroke you make online.
The government has always been able to check on you, legally or illegally is irrelevant. They always have and always will take the piss out of our so called freedom.

Obama will soon become the worst for breaching your rights I guarantee it.

This country can also have irrelevant agendas.

Well, I wasn't necessarily jipping on this one topic, but on the world's new found love of the state.

Yeah but does economic libertarianism need to get a mention in every topic, even one about civil liberties?

I was just mentioning that a free market would be necessary if a new nation were started to avoid these things. You can't have cilvil liberties without a free market, and vice versa.

Cool story bro, must've been a police state before trading began

Lol, like hell ISPs do this already. They have enough troube keeping the network conditions in good nick without slowing it down twofold by adding a logging process into the route/multiplex/transmit continuum. The internet is so disorganised half the traffic sent into it never reaches its destination. I'm not saying it isn't possible to create and implement the wacky Jacqui style everything-expect-those-expenses-receipts database but I don't think its happening at the moment. Maybe IPv6 and fibre proliferation will provide the means, but that is a bit out of my knowledge base.
