Google report reveals British government web snooping - Telegraph.
Those friends who think my concerns for liberty in Britain overblown should consider the country's consistently high position, when adjusted for population, in Google's rankings for requests for private data from government intelligence services. To be up there with authoritarian Singapore is surely indicative of something?
My previous comment seems to have failed, but I first discovered that transparency report, and blogged about it, back in May.
Great to see it highlighted by The Telegraph.
