Who gave away access for US surveillance of all British citizens?

by Michael Meacher.

The revelations from Edward Snowden’s documents get ever more breathtaking. It had always previously been thought that under the so-called Five-Eyes intelligence-sharing arrangements (established under the UKUSA Signals Intelligence Agreement in 1946) between the US, UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, the citizens of each of these countries were off-limits from surveillance by any of […]

Outrage in the US and EU over total surveillance: why not in the UK?
