    UK to reconsider 'snoopers charter'

    Interesting change of view by the UK government.

    Full news report is at news.bbc.co.uk.uk/hi/english/uk_politics/newsid_2051000/2051117.stm
    Extract from the article:
    "Destination of e-mails and mobile calls under scrutiny.
    Home Secretary David Blunkett has admitted he blundered over plans dubbed a "snooper's charter" to give a raft of public bodies access to private e-mail and mobile phone records.
    I have no intention that we should be Big Brother.
    The proposals are to be put on hold indefinitely in the face of huge opposition, which the home secretary conceded his department totally failed to predict.
    The extension of the powers to seven Whitehall departments, as well as local authorities and other public bodies will now not be discussed in the Commons before the next session of Parliament, which starts in November. "
