FRA igen

Vår man i London, Gunnar Pettersson, bloggar på Pressylta Redux (15 juli) om kritik mot avlyssningsplaner i Storbritannien. Kritiken kommer från landets nätombudsman, Information Commissioner’s Office:

Any government run database holding the telephone and internet communications of the entire population would raise serious data protection concerns, the Information Commissioner, Richard Thomas, is warning today. Commenting on speculation that the government is considering the development of such a database Richard Thomas will say that it would be ‘a step too far for the British way of life’ […] there needs to be the fullest public debate about the justification for, and implications of, a specially-created database – potentially accessible to a wide range of law enforcement authorities – holding details of everyone’s telephone and internet communications. Do we really want the police, security services and other organs of the state to have access to more and more aspects of our private lives?

(saxat ur en pressrelease om nätombudsmannens senaste årsrapport).

Jag säger bara två saker:

1. Nätombudsmannen, “set up to promote access to official information and to protect personal information” verkar vara en vettig instans.

2. Pressylta Redux. Essential reading, som vanligt.
