More wasting of Public Money
"Such a system will mean providers will need to hire new staff and buy new equipment. ISPA said the government had to ensure it covered the costs with public money."
Excelolent news. This is truly a genius move by Waqui Jaqui. Find soemthing which nobody wants, that no body believes will help catch "terrorists" then throw a ridiculous amount of "public money" at it.
Since this money comes out of our taxes, its fair to say i am paying the government to watch what I do online. Wouldn't it be easier and cheaper to just tell them in, for instance, a court of law, under, say, oath?
So whilst Mr Darling is floundering around liek a beached whale about to be dynamited, trying to save money to dig us out of one of the worst financial crisies of all time, our batshit crazy hoem secratary is throwing "public money" about like it's going out of fashion.
The problem that i see is this: The term "Public Money" is going to cause the same problems you ahve with "Public Parks". Everyone has the incentive to use it too the full, but has no incentive to take good care of it.
So yeah, Save the 2Billion by not bothering with this ridiculous scheme. instead maybe use the existing one which does exactly the same thing, just needs a warrant issuing. like normal legal procedures.
Mine's thaving his public money taken out of his coat.
