    Usually, when there is news that governments or agencies want to do something, it's code-speak that they already are and are merely "informing" you of their "intention"

    And it doesn't even matter, the US looks at UK traffic and then gives the UK the info, and the UK does this for the US. This way, both countries get info on their citizens' internet use while not explicitly monitoring their own people.

    Nothing new here... Big Brother works behind the shadows, trying to take over the world. I know, it sounds like a conspiracy theory but if you read some of David Icke's books along with maaaaany documentaries that are on this subject...

    Better don't do anything illegal 'cause everything is being watched. SMS, phone conversations, what happens in your PC, email address, Google being the spearhead in the online world.

    Ah, the future looks bright!

    They've been doing this secretively for years through GCHQ anyways... Thought at least it was limited to spy types, with this legislation we can expect many a "laptop left on train" incident from the incompetent buffoons that will have access to it.

    This has been floating around for a long time. Will become legislation soon.

    But tbh, I'm sure they've been tapping people for a long long time.

    The governments of both the USA/UK do this at MANY different levels. At the ISP lvl, the CIA invests in social monitoring software, there are a zillions ways they are monitoring everything online. Including data dumps from FB.

    It has two sides to it, the plus side is it is really good for security, and they are not sat there monitoring every single thing, the will be monitoring keywords associated with crime / terrorism.

    There's no flip side. They can monitor suspected terr0rists anytime they want. They only need to get a warrant for any suspected criminal. This new law is giving them power to monitor and record all activities of normal people, anything and everything. Imagine the data center they will need to store all the data. And to be honest I don't think that it's safe in the hands of government. Have you seen how easily they've "lost" data in the past?
