Information about all landline and mobile phone calls made in the UK must be logged and stored for a year under new laws.

Data about calls made and received will also be available to 652 public bodies, including the police and councils.

fuck me – pretty soon they’ll be logging the number of toilet flushes per household.


something corporate – watch the sky

    how does one know it’s just for a year? what happens then? what about the 652 “public bodies” – do they also get rid of the info after a year?

    something so wrong about all these efforts…

    it is disturbing – even moreso that there is almost no protest by the sheepish public who naively trust the government.
