Press Comment: Home Office internet surveillance

Nick Pickles, director of the Big Brother Watch campaign group, said:
“This is an unprecedented step that will see Britain adopt the same kind of surveillance seen in China and Iran.

“This is an absolute attack on privacy online and it is far from clear this will actually improve public safety, while adding ┬ásignificant costs to internet businesses.

“If this was such a serious security issue why has the Home Office not ensured these powers were in place before the Olympics?”
