Another story that I meant to write about this week was the government proposal to allowing the security services to monitor its citizens email indiscriminately.
You know, the same politicians who were totally opposed the idea when the previous government floated the idea.
A lot of people aren’t very comfortable with that idea, even if the Daily Mail says ‘if you’ve nothing to hide, you’ve nothing to fear’.
Anyway, the Sunday Times may have jokingly come up with and effective way of protesting – we can save the spooks the trouble by copying GCHQ every time we send an email.
And why stop there? We could copy them to 10 Downing Street, our local MP and completely clog up the system as well as making our point.
GCHQ isn’t keen on giving out its email address, but I’m guessing at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Just a thought.
