Against all expectations the Conservatives have won an absolute majority in the General Election. Theresa May has already said this morning that she will use this majority to pass a new Snoopers' Charter.

In today's Queen's Speech, the Government announced its rebranded and upgraded Snoopers' Charter with even more powers for the police and GCHQ.

Story
Introduction
Anthony is the founder and Director of Just Software Solutions Ltd, and author of C++ Concurrency in Action.

When he's not writing bespoke software for clients, he's often to be found working on the next C++ Standard (C++0x), or writing about it. Anthony has been a member of the BSI C++ Standards Panel for a number of years, and is one of the key proponents of the multithreading support in the C++0x draft. His implementation of the C++0x thread library is available from http://www.stdthread.co.uk
