The data sharing cockroaches

"A close look at the Coroners and Justice Bill, published with the Queen's Speech, will tell you that the government has been up to its old trick of using the cover of reform to push a surveillance agenda, in this case to 'remove barriers to effective data sharing to support improved public services and the fight against crime and terrorism' … Civil servants will be crawling through our personal information like an infestation of cockroaches that can never be exterminated." —Henry Porter
