Submission + - Did the Queen Just Resurrect the Snooper's Charter? (ibtimes.co.uk) 2

DavidGilbert99 writes: This time last year the Queen officially introduced the Communications Data Bill (known as the Snooper's Charter to those opposing it). Last month it was effectively killed when the UK deputy prime minister Nick Clegg said it went too far and he wouldn't support it. Today the Queen was back and while there was no official mention of the Communications Data Bill, there was mention of "crime in cyberspace" and a very strong hint that more legislation to monitor people's online activity is on the way.
