George-Orwell

 

UK Prime Minister David Cameron has announced that if his party wins May’s General Election, he will revive a Bill that keeps track of your online activity and phone calls.

The Communications Data Bill – nicknamed the Snoopers’ Charter.

If passed in its present form, it will force internet providers, social networks, and telecommunication firms (such as BT, Sky, and Orange) to keep records of all users’ activities, including browsing history, calls, and messages.

 


1984

The Party “seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power.”

Nineteen Eighty-Four – George Orwell
