Snooper's Charter has no place in Britain

Originally published by UK Liberal Democrats

In 2012 Theresa May and the Tories brought forward plans to force internet service providers to keep a record of all your texts, emails and every website you visited.

It was an enormous intrusion into our privacy, and a staggering attempt to grab our personal data on a scale we have never seen before.

The Liberal Democrats were clear then, and are clear now, a snooper's charter has no place in Britain, so we blocked it.

Theresa May's revised plans that have been published today should not try and sneak these provisions back in again.

Make no mistake the Liberal Democrats will fight any attempt to bring back the so-called Snooper's Charter under a different name.
