GCHQ taps fibre-optic cables for secret access to world's comms - http://bit.ly/16maMTf  UK "produces larger amounts of metadata than NSA"

so given GCHQ's world-beating ability to access metadata, why is UK gov still calling for Snooper's Charter to get it again? #Snowden

"850,000 NSA employees and US private contractors with top secret clearance had access to GCHQ databases." - & no UK privacy breaches eh?

so maybe Mr Hague ought to resign after suggesting in Parliament everything was under control and above board, "nothing to see here"?

also, this revelation undercuts argument that UK law enforcement don't have enough info - they have *all* of it - & still miss major plots

as many of us have been saying, having more data about all of us is not the solution; instead they should concentrate on the right info

also, who now would want to route their cables through the UK if every bit going over them is going to be spied on?

this news also undercuts UK gov arguments that #RIPA ensures everything is legal: they have been circumventing RIPA entirely...
