It's about "safe spaces"

Apparently Cameron has said he will not allow "safe spaces" for people to communicate with each other without monitoring. So, where do I go to talk to my friend about how we are going to vote? Where do I go to talk to my MP about raising a government abuse in parliament? Where do I go to talk to my lawyer? Apparently all those conversations should be monitored.

Maybe we should ask him where he plans to go to talk to his friends in the City about his directorship for when he stops being PM? Where will he go to discuss secret trade treaties?

Fortunately, in this case, he is being completely stupid and nothing can come of it. Presumably, however, he is saying this so he can later present the real proposals as "we listened to the objections and have reduced our demands" - back to the original snooper's charter proposals.
