This is what the Human Rights Act is for
The thing about "rights" is they are not actually rights at all. They are government dont's.
This provision is basically the equivalent of legalising burglary, if you're a rozzer.
Given that our parliament is too supine to exercise proper oversight, we need the courts to protect us.
The much maligned Article 8 (the one that the Daily Mail hates so much) as well as protecting your right to family life, protects your home and your privacy.
There may well be a strong argument that the exemption introduced is incompatible with Article 8.
If you get rid of human rights, you are trusting your government.
