Today we may hear more about the Home Secretary’s proposals to snoop on all our emails and web activities.
I have commented before on this disagraceful attack upon our liberty. If she had any understanding of how the public feels, and any belief in freedom, she would send the computer salesmen packing. The answer must be “No”.
This morning I want to raise the issue of how much all this is going to cost. This government has plunged us into huge debt with many expensive over the top centralised computer systems. Why should this one be any different?
Can the Home Secretary please go back to concentrating on her personal expense forms. We might be able to afford a few more items for the second home. We certainly cannot afford her spending time signing national computer contracts on this scale.
