Only an excuse?

10-07-2005 14:02

So the phone companies will be legally obliged to store communication data and the gprs location of individuals for the Civil Service to review. That's handy, given that GCHQ already do this quietly without drawing attention to themselves.

09-07-2005 20:34

Campaigners distance themselves from Geldof praise for G8

09-07-2005 17:58

The question is: why it is only these 2 NGOs who have the guts to come out and speak truth to power?
