Ministers cancel 'Big Brother' database NOT

The Independent proves that it's staffed by idiots.

The headline and attendant article give the misleading impression that plans for surveillance of all our phone and internet activity have been abandoned.

As any fule kno, all that's been 'cancelled' is the government's plans for its own central database to store (and lose) the data gathered by the ISPs in accordance with EU law. The collection and retention of the data is still going ahead.

Give me strength.
