The UK government is secretly planning to force technology companies to build backdoors into their products, to enable intelligence agencies to read people’s private messages.

A draft document leaked by the Open Rights Group details extreme new surveillance proposals, which would enable government agencies to spy on one in 10,000 citizens – around 6,500 people – at any one time.

The document, which follows the controversial Investigatory Powers Act, reveals government plans to force mobile operators and internet service providers to provide real-time communications of customers to the government “in an intelligible form”, and within one working day.

The data is 128bit encrypted, I guess the company providers will not allow the access to private conversations and data..

They're already monitoring internet activity, didn't hear one newspaper cover this despite everyones TV license paying for the BBC... Makes me think leaving the EU will be bad and will tip the UK more towards the US way of "privacy"
