Really conflicted on this one. On the one hand those entitled trough sniffers are quite happily championing one rule for the politico's and one rule for the proles, otoh anything that gives GCHQ and Co a bloody nose over mass data collection is good by me.

Also that QC seems to have forgotten the main reason for the Wilson doctrine being put in place - its possibly the closest (if you believe the rumours) we have ever come to an overthrow of a serving Prime Minister by the bureaucracy.
