You know, I thought that the BBC News article about monitoring texts and web use (the one they posted on 1st April) was an April Fool’s Joke.
I just moved to the US for a short spell and I thought the Patriot Act was fucked up. Some of my family left parts of India, Pakistan and Iran to move to other countries that were less dangerous/unstable.
WTF is going on in the world?
This is our government.
This is what they do, how they control and watch and monitor us. And use our money for it (this is going to cost £200 million a year).
It’s disgusting, it’s horrifying and inhumane.
Sherlock/DW fans who idealise this country and want to move here, and want to be British, please take a moment to have a look at just a tiny scrap of what life here is really like, and be glad you’re not here. Be glad there isn’t a camera watching your every move, too. Those are sickening enough.
