Police set to step up hacking of home PCs
Allow me to quote from the article:
THE Home Office has quietly adopted a new plan to allow police across Britain routinely to hack into people’s personal computers without a warrant.
The move, which follows a decision by the European Union’s council of ministers in Brussels, has angered civil liberties groups and opposition MPs. They described it as a sinister extension of the surveillance state which drives “a coach and horses” through privacy laws.
Yup. It's just a matter of time before this is shoved down the collective throat of the US people for reasons of "Fighting Terrorism" or "Controlling Dissension/Sedition".
Really England, How far you've fallen.
