There's a fundamental flaw in legislating that a faceless beaureaucrat, who isn't answerable to anyone, can decide, purely on his own authority, to monitor the communications of any person that takes his fancy.

This is the bit I'm struggling with, but you'll have to forgive my obviously addled mind :)

Is there such a thing as a bureaucrat who is unanswerable to anyone?

What's the point of information gathered by someone unanswerable to anyone, that misses the whole point of "intelligence gathering" ***

What happens when said bureaucrat takes a fancy to you (which would suggest they know you, or of you, first)?

*** When we see failures in "intelligence gathering" they usually fall into two categories, either someone missed a piece of information, or they reported it and it was ignored at a higher level.


You've answered your own questions there haven't you CB?
