Shame I only get one upvote!

Bliar is such a Cockwomble.

He still misses the point that giving data to technology companies may get you scammed or spammed but it won't get you falsely arrested, tracked and targetted like the government can do.

The Bliar years were when RIPA was introduced (railroaded through on a terror/child porn ticket), ID cards were seriously considered and DNA databases were set up - later to be considered incompatible with human rights... Nice going Tony

(sorry, bit off topic but he just winds me up!)
