Liberal Democrats kill off the Snoopers' Charter

Over on the Liberal Democrats main website there is a bit of a celebration going on as the party rejoices in the news that we have succeeded in killing off the Snoopers' Charter for the rest of this Parliament at least.

They report that although Theresa May has announced that action to match IP addresses to individuals will be included in the upcoming package of counter terror measures, the much wider and disproportionate proposals in the Snoopers’ Charter will not feature.

If the Charter had been proceeded with then it would have allowed the security services to access records kept of every website you visit and who you communicate with on social media sites.

Another Liberal Democrats success in moderating Tory excesses.
