So is that the game?
So instead of trying to get approval for the mass surveillance database past Parliament, it looks like she's trying to get a law for 'lowering data sharing barriers' together with a massive 'revamping of IT systems' budget (4000 seats, 5k a seat, = 20 million, leaving 480 million to spend on something else, presumably her massive surveillance database), together with the implementation of the EU Data Retention directive.
i.e. she builds the database with a SOCA IT budget as a crime fighting database. That database accepts ISP data feeds adhoc as needed by the EU Data Retention Directive. but shockingly is massively bigger than the 2GB of Communications data it needs to store (200k CDRs per year according to the 'watchdog').
Ministry of Justice gets it's 'enhanded data sharing review', and nutjob gets her mass surveillance database of all communications by simply eliminating the 'barrier to sharing of data' between the ISP and Government.
All the elements seem to be there, just no democratic controls.
Remember the Ministry of Justice data sharing review:
