Submission + - UK phone and email database proposed (timesonline.co.uk)

mishmash writes: The Times of London is reporting proposals for a massive government database holding details of every phone call, e-mail and time spent on the internet. This is to be justified as being "part of the fight against crime and terrorism". "Internet service providers (ISPs) and telecoms companies would hand over the records to the Home Office under plans put forward by officials." Contact details for representatives to let them know your views are available at Write to Them.
