The only thing that can change governments are people.

So, you may have heard about this. Currently, the all the UK ISPs are required to retain all of your data that goes through their servers (this means everything you do on the internet ever is stored for ever just in case the government thinks it might be useful).

This was recently ruled unlawful by the European Court of Justice as being against the European Convention on Human Rights. To keep this data going, the UK government has decided to rush a new bill through parliament. MPs were sent back to their constituencies on Wednesday, so the government (backed by Labour, might I add) could announce this legislation to an empty chamber. Making it very hard to say anything about it.

MPs will vote on this legislation (that has not been debated or scrutinised by MPs) on Monday. In all likelyhood, this will get through parliament. 

I have emailed my MP to tell him that I am not happy with such controversial (and unlawful) legislation to be rushed through parliament without any real scrutiny. No law should ever be passed that hasn't been properly debated. Please, if you care about democracy, do the same. And tell everyone. This is not right in a democratic country. #tf  
The Government announced legislation this morning forcing Internet Service Providers and phone networks to carry out blanket retention of your phone calls, your texts, and your Internet browsing history. The plans have the support of the frontbenches of the three largest parties.

 #EU
 
sigh - EU directive for the same powers was ruled to be "unlawful" so Cameron is set to pass this as an "emergency law". Disgraceful.
I'm not convinced that independence is the best thing but Westminster seems to be convincing me it is. I will be writing to my MP in complaint.

it's a little concerning when you contact the support desk for one of the largest tech companies in the world and always get the same guy.......

Really not impressed with the colour scheme on the new android L preview. Ugly colours everywhere.

I hope it's customisable but since it's in the google apps as well I doubt it will be :(
