UK tech experts worry about the 'snooper's charter'

By Nik Martin

The British government has redrafted its so-called 'snooper's charter' - this is a proposed law that will give police and other agencies the power to look at people’s use of the internet. It means authorities can keep someone’s internet history for a year, and can monitor their mobile phones. The government wants to get the bill through parliament before the end of the year. It says these measures will help protect Britain from its enemies. But critics say that parliament’s recommendations - and people’s privacy - have been ignored.
