U.K. Set to Expand Internet Surveillance

Britain's Telegraph newspaper is reporting that the U.K. government is set to pass legislation that will force internet companies to install hardware that will allow the government to monitor, in real-time, any phone call, text message, e-mail and all internet traffic.

If you're a resident of the U.K., please spread the word to your friends and family. This is vital information for anyone who does business through electronic means and anyone who still (erroneously) has an expectation of privacy.

The director of the 'Big Brother Watch' activist group said:
"This is an unprecedented step that will see Britain adopt the same kind of surveillance seen in China and Iran."
