Do it: Scrap Plans to Monitor all Emails and Web Usage – e-petitions

Scrap Plans to Monitor all Emails and Web Usage

Responsible department: Home Office

Internet firms will be required to give intelligence agency GCHQ access to communications on demand, in real time.

The Home Office says the move is key to tackling crime and terrorism. They have no right to attack our privacy, if the legislation goes through, Britain will be no different from regimes it criticises such as China and Iran.

It would enable intelligence officers to identify who an individual or group is in contact with, how often and for how long. They would also be able to see which websites someone had visited.

Government should scrap plans immediately.
