Re: Nothing to hide if you have done nothing wrong ?

Having a crap is not illegal, so why do toilets have doors ?

Shitting in public is illegal (public indecency laws), so we are basically being asked to install toilet doors that are opaque to the public but transparent to GCHQ (and transparent to anyone who knows how GCHQ make them transparent). Next we'll have to make walls out of the same stuff, and wear clothes made out of that stuff. GCHQ demands the ability to see all things at all times lest one terrorist be overlooked.

Then they decide to overlook suspected terrorists that they already know about, because they've not done anything for a few months, et voila! Charlie Hebdo

Asking for the ability to watch more people, because some people you chose to stop watching killed people, is pretty fucking disingenuous.
