The problem is we seem to have neither agents with a conscience or legislation difficult to change for the spooks and their puppets.

So even if we did have functioning privacy organisations willing to take on the government (Hacked Off being a notable exception but even that was primarily motivated by celebrity involvement) we'd have no real chance of winning.

It comes to something when the best we are ever going to see in the UK is a minister in the dock for lying to parliament (unlikely in any case due to doublespeak).
