Snooper’s charter 2016

A Bill, dubbed the ‘snooper’s charter’ has now become law. It gives more powers of surveillance to the police, security services and official agencies (why would the Food Standard’s Agency require these powers for ordinary citizens)? Maybe my standards of food hygiene will be under scrutiny?

I can understand the need for security – but this seems far reaching – the NHS is also included  -be careful what you say next time you visit your GP!  Surveillance society perhaps?
