Last month we were informed that all emails and computer data from individuals was to be ‘retained’ for several years.
Now I read:The Government is compiling a database to track and store the international travel records of millions of Britons. The intelligence centre will store names, addresses, telephone numbers, seat reservations, travel itineraries and credit card details for all 250 million journeys made in and out of the UK each year. The computerised pattern of every individual’s travel history will be kept for up to 10 years.
This is the level of ‘democracy and human rights’ that we insist certain other countries must attain ! Here is silly old me thinking the cold war [1945 1995] was all about defeating the yoke of russian totalitarianism.
Free country? You must be joking !
