David Blunkett, Home Secretary, has climbed down on permitting 'extended' agencies from accessing your email and telephone records. Hurrah. This means that the Post Office, Municipal Parks, McDonalds and other interested agencies may not have access to whom you communicate with. Hurrah. It is also a tacit admission that the UK government records this information. It further implies that you, dear Americans, Germans, French, Canadians, Senegalese and everyone else whose electronic communications happen to be routed through or to the UK, are being violated by the UK, which has no regard whatsoever for the privacy of its citizens or anyone else's. Is anyone else really p!ssed off about this?
