What's the world coming to?

I saw this article on the BBC newsfeed this morning (right, Big Brother?) and I'm really shocked by it.

Back when we lived in Europe, the Brits were very vocal and against have their photos put on their driver's license and now they are putting up with this violation of rights... Very sad indeed.

Here's the link:
Plan to monitor all internet use - By Dominic Casciani, BBC News home affairs reporter

And here's a couple of lines from the article...
"Communications firms are being asked to record all internet contacts between people as part of a modernisation in UK police surveillance tactics.

... The new system would track all e-mails, phone calls and internet use, including visits to social network sites."

What's next?
