Snooping proposal - hopefully on its way out
I was one of a number of Lib Dem MPs to publicly oppose the government's suggestions on online snooping. I have linked to a letter in The Independent of which I was one of the signatories.
There is another letter in The Guardian. I don't know why my name doesn't appear in the letter in The Guardian, but to me it is important to record that I have publicly opposed such an extension of state surveillance.
I personally don't mind CCTV in shopping centres. However, the government's proposals were clearly completely wrong.
