Still in panic mode then?

You want to be free to associate with terrorists without the authorities taking an interest for example?

Argue the case for an individual's right to privacy, Ben. You have singularly avoided doing this to date.

Once you have done so, demonstrating your understanding of it, we can move forwards.

Why, I am a realist. YOU are the one arguing that you should have a right to privacy - it is up to YOU to argue your case for it

I would ask you to consider the implications of granting total privacy to everyone....you will then realise why it never has and never will happen

Frankly the surveillance by private businesses is more annoying than any government surveillance to me. That has no discernible  effect on my life....then again I have 'nothing to hide' animated laugh

Define exactly what you object to.....try to be a tad more specific rather than just twittering about those non existent MI5 cameras in your toilet
