Britain’s Civil Liberties

How would you feel about the contents of every website visited, cell phone call and email sent being tracked by the government? This would concern me, obviously:

The Home Office will create a database to store the details of every phone call made, every email sent and every web page visited by British citizens in the previous year under plans currently under discussion, it has emerged.

The Government wants to create the system to fight terrorism and crime. The police and security services believe it will make it easier to access important data as communications become more complex.

Somewhere between being frisked at the airport and water boarding, there has to be a balance.
