    Investigatory Powers Bill was passed by the House of Lords last week

    The police, NHS and the tax man will now be able to hack into your phones and check your browsing history after the Snoopers' Charter was passed by Parliament last week.
    The bill, officially called the Investigatory Powers Bill, forces electronic data to be stored by internet providers for 12 months, which can be subsequently collected by law enforcement.
    Now a blogger has created a list of all the people who will be able to request to view your internet history if the bill passes Royal Assent to become law.

    THE SNOOPERS' CHARTER
    The bill, officially called the Investigatory Powers Bill, forces electronic data to be stored by internet providers for 12 months, which can be subsequently collected by law enforcement.
    The act replaces the previous Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act.
    It was passed by the House of Lords last week after they backed down on an amendment.
    The amendment would have forced the press to pay court costs for both parties in any case involving allegations of phone or email hacking, even if they were completely spurious.
    The new law introduces new surveillance and hacking powers.
    Chris Yui, who works in Edinburgh as a general manager at Uber, wrote in his personal blog: 'I always wondered what it would feel like to be suffocated by the sort of state intrusion that citizens are subjected to in places like China, Russia and Iran.
    'I guess we’re all about to find out.'
    He listed the 48 departments that will now have access to information such as internet browsing history, set out in Schedule 4 of the Act.
    These include police, GCHQ, government departments such as the Home Office, MoD, Department of Health, the Food Standards Agency, HM Revenue & Customs and the Gambling Commission.
    This part of the act also sets out the minimum office or rank each person within those organisations must be if they want access to the records.


    The bill forces electronic data to be stored by internet provider companies for 12 months, which can be subsequently collected by law enforcement
    In the police, viewers must be an inspector or a superintendent, for instance.
    The access also works regardless of whether or not you clear your history, because it will be held by your internet service provider.
    Internet provider must keep logs for a year and hand them over to the government on request, whether users want them to or not.
    The lists will include every website that has been visited, but not specific pages on those websites.
    While critics have cited it as an attack on privacy, the Government believes the charter is essential for combating terrorism and organised crime.
    The act replaces the previous Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act.
    It was passed by the House of Lords last week after they backed down on an amendment.
    The amendment would have forced the press to pay court costs for both parties in any case involving allegations of phone or email hacking, even if they were completely spurious.
    One peer said it would have ‘chilled’ journalism and stopped papers writing about figures such as ex-BHS boss Sir Philip Green.
    Lord Myners said the amendment to implement section 40 of the Crime and Courts Acts 2013 would have made it easier for the rich to sue on spurious grounds.

    Sorry for the cut and paste from facebook. But I thought this should be shared soonest.

    No idea at the moment whether this is a "Nothing to hide, nothing to fear" situation.

    OR

    A step closer to a Totalitarian police state in the UK.

    It's all really pointless across the pond and their attempts now futile. As they will be overtaken by Muslims in a decade or 2 anyways...

    UN is supposed to take over the net in jan, expect more of this globally. So much for a advanced society that can't communicate with its people but feels the need to rule over them.

    Advanced is more like barbarism! < that's feminine. Lol

    As much as the UN and other advocates say that the UN will not censor the internet is bs.

    Agree with TommyGun on this. The UK has been working into this direction for a long long time now.

    There are more socialist/Marxist types by far in the UK government and it is a fatal infection. It is infecting their school system as well as their communication media.

    Not all people in the UK are interested in it but I believe their government is far more advanced in not trusting their people than here in the states.


    Beware....Bewarned of a government such as exists in the UK wherein they so obviously do not trust their own people but must needs herd them like cattle in every aspect of their lives.

    This is a trend line rapidly accelerated with the Obama Administration. Marxist/Socialist ideology and all the rest of the baggage to follow. Guilt trips,..manufactured bad guys and lots of other identifying marks...or indexes/fingerprints of Marxist/Socialist/Communism. This is what is become of the UK today. Marxist/Socialist/Communist/Herd mentality.

    This is not an American template though the Obama administration has tried it's best to infect Americans so. Particularly young easily emoted people. Non thinkers...

    The UK is very very far down this path.



    There is a movie out ...done by the Alex Jones group. It is titled "Revelation..The Dawn of Global Government"

    I finally obtained a copy of it and watched it last night. In this video there are a number of people interviewed who give the indexes...fingerprints of things for which to watch in a Marxist/Socialist/Communist takeover of a government.

    General William Jerry Boykin made several comments in this video about what indexes he was trained by the military to observe in Marxist/Communist/Socialist Ideologies and explains that many of these patterns were exactly what the Obama Administration was promoting in our government.

    What is interesting is that many of the indexes for which to observe are in that list on the top of this thread and also in the operation of the Obama Administration for the last 8 years.

    While not familiar with the whole list..I have made a study of observing many of them in the common nature of division and not unity. Government dividing a nation and people along any lines they can manufacture...dividers..not uniters. This epitomizes the Obama Administration in particular.

    Divide by race, by wealth, by sex and sexuality....over and over and over you can see it happening...working constantly against most Americans and catering to selected minorities and putting them on the public purse at the expense of All Americans. In otherwords...Bondage..slavery...involuntary servitude.

    At the same time...spying across the board on Americans and technologically accelerating this methodology of spying on Americans.

    It becomes obvious by this methodology that our government for the last 8 years has not trusted the American People but has trusted foreigners more..in particularl Muslim foreigners..and has deliberately given them a free pass and hindered....not trusted Americans.

    Just like is happening in the UK. This is what is happening there..wherein In the UK and also in Europe these people are rapidly on their way to taking second third and fourth place in their own nation to foreigners.....because their Marxist/Socialist/Communist governments do not trust them.

    This is what is so telling about the list brought out here by the OP.

    Until this election...our own government was going rapidly down this road as well. Now for the mean time, and with this recent election, some people have a measure of hope.

    But we are watching carefully ....monitoring our government for the proper tell tales.


    By the way....when it becomes so obvioius that your government does not trust you ...why would they ever trust you with a vote??? Or anything else..even not trust you with your own children?? Ever think about this...the very nature of this. This is a clue as to the manner in which Socialist/Marxist/Communist governments have Rigged the system against you...and your children.

    This is the rabbit hole down which the UK government has rapidly de evolved..into Tyranny. It is the Rabbit Hole down which our own government is trying to take us here in America. We are to be a Xerox copy of the UK in everything. Our government has been working on this template since back with Theodore Roosevelt and before..back to our Civil War. To break the power of our Constitution...to break the chains of our Constitution.

    We are Americans ..not Englishmen. I have known about this template since before the Obama Administration. There have been people warning about this in this country for over 35 years...that this was coming.

    Our own leadership seems to have forgotten this template about us. That we are not Englishmen...nor Continentals.
