"Police will be given powers to secretly access people's internet browsing history and see who they have been contacting, for how long and when."
"Plans to enable courts to sit behind closed doors when considering issues of national security and powers to monitor emails and internet communications will all be part of the Government’s programme of reforms in the next 12 months."
"Under the draft Communications Data Bill, authorities would not be able to view the content of email and text messages, but could identify who someone was contacting, how often and for how long, and could also access internet browsing history."
The reason I ask is that I have toyed with the idea of moving to the UK as CL issues have gotten worse here. I have relatives near Cornwall, and via my paternal heritage would be eligible for a passport/citizenship. But clearly this may be jumping from the fire into the pan.
