Stasi...

Don't forget that what the Stasi did to the East German people was legal under East German law and was fully approved by the government.

Its not really a question of legality, but one of morality - the two are not the same in some cases.

Maybe comparing GCHQ to the Stasi could be seen as slightly OTT, but its starting to look a lot like it.
