Databases - New Labour caught in the gaze: Watching all your internet activity.

First up the logging of e-mails and such like as reported in the Telegraph:
A European Union directive, which Britain was instrumental in devising, comes into force which will require all internet service providers to retain information on email traffic, visits to web sites and telephone calls made over the internet, for 12 months.
Hundreds of public bodies and quangos, including local councils, will also be able to access the data to investigate flytipping and other less serious crimes.

It was previously thought that only the large companies would be required to take part, covering 95 per cent of Britain's internet usage, but a Home Office spokesman has confirmed it will be applied "across the board" to even the smallest company.

Privacy campaigners say the move to force telecoms companies to store the data is the first step towards the controversial central database at the heart of the Home Office's Intercept Modernisation Programme, which will gather far more detailed information on Britain's online activities.

Simon Davies, director of Privacy International, said: "I don't think people are aware of the implications of this move. It means that everything we do online or on the phone will be known to the authorities.

"They are using this to produce probably the world's most comprehensive surveillance system.

"This is a disgraceful example of the covert influence that Brussels has across our freedoms and liberties. The entire episode has been marked by a litany of secret dealings, vicious political games and a complete absence of transparency."

Police and the security services will be able to access the information to combat crime and terrorism.
Now note that they -New Labour - used asset seizing laws to arrest fishermen, so expect mission creep to come in and no doubt some fishermen, train spotters or other dangerous threats to the New Labour state will be arrested.

Lots of pointy nosed snoops will be getting a hard on at even more powers to snoop on bin crimes and other dangerous offences.

Update - this site has a rather good idea for pissing off the database powers, the following is from that site:
From Monday All your emails, web browsing history and mobile calls will be stored for a year due to sweeping new laws making Britain a proper kleptocracy, by order of the EU.

(On 15 March 2006 the European Union formally adopted Directive 2006/24/EC, on "the retention of data generated or processed in connection with the provision of publicly available electronic communications services or of public communications networks and amending Directive 2002/58/EC")

Your web browsing will be stored from your ISP. The Government will force you to have it all revealed to them from your ISP. IP addresses the works.

Story in the Independent here

As a personal protest, I have created the following email signature, which will be added to each and every email that I send. I see this as a completely responsible act, one which does not break the law, but none-the-less an act of defiance, an act of rebellion against those who would take away my right to privacy, supposedly guaranteed by the European Charter of Human Rights, one which I hope will make those who draft such inept laws pay attention.

The following is a disclaimer and a protest at the collection, retention and sharing of my personal mail by the morally bankrupt state.

By adding a string of key words, it will guarantee that each and every mail that I send will now need to be manually viewed as it is picked up by the auto scan software. If every person in the UK does exactly the same, then the entire system will quickly become so unmanageable, so unwieldy that it will become unworkable.

Key words, bomb, assassinate, president, brown, Osama, Obama, Sargozy, Merkel, government, target, location, rocket, grenade, al-Qaeda, Pakistan, India, Afghanistan, UK, America, guns, jets, bombs, machine-gun, terrorists, MP's, pigs, troughs, France, Germany, Italy, nuclear, Korea.
So henceforth will be putting that on e-mails I send to anyone. As well as these. DNK, Bio Weapons, gas attack, Gordon Brown the unelected snot gobbling PM. 

Also adding these: infidel, kuffir, jihad, caliphate, umma.
Key words, bomb, assassinate, president, brown, Osama, Obama, Sargozy, Merkel, government, target, location, rocket, grenade, al-Qaeda, Pakistan, India, Afghanistan, UK, America, guns, jets, bombs, machine-gun, terrorists, MP's, pigs, troughs, France, Germany, Italy, nuclear, Korea,

So so true, add a list of tags to each post an clog up the filter system.

I for see a slight problem with this. it may work for a while and mails with the list will be looked at even if they're a message to granny saying thanks for the sweater. But eventually some one may get a little miffed and use something like a spam programme to put your emails automatically in the 'Don't look at this shite' folder. You see where I'm coming from?

They will of course still be kept to wanked over later by some pointy nosed cunt but they might not have the desired effect.
