    Is it on the road to success? Or has it been passed or beaten down

    No problem! I'm sort of hoping it might come up now. I'm crossing my fingers that we get some damn good questions.
    i hope so too, its actually a pretty decent question! i feel like it might be an option as the first/last time they put it on there students really struggles

    To be honest, I've just accepted the reality that this will be passed at some point. I live under the impression that intelligence services and the government do this already.
    I agree, there's always someone watching us

    That honestly reminds me of big brother, it's scary to think they're trying to control us and keep tabs on us even more, one day I hope society will rise up and take a stand on issues such as this as it can't lead to anything good for our rights. It's a complete breach on personal data/information
    Yeah the foi act was introduced but this is beyond that

    yeah, but not on this scale.. targeted interception of data is definitely happening.

    another retarded aspect of the bill is that internet providers are the ones who have to store all the internet data, so everyone's internet costs will go up because of server costs... GG THERSA MAY GGWP

    Yeah because its an Act it should be passed HOWEVER, on the parliament website it says its still being reviewed by the HofL so im a bit confused- it is still a legit example you can use though

    Oh **** I didn't even realise it said act my bad, it's funny how it hasn't been mentioned much on politics news accounts,..private member bills don't seem to get much attention 😕

    I just checked on the parliament site, it said its received royal assent on March 23 so it's now an act...don't know whether to hurray or nay? Is it a good act or a bad act

    RA is not higlighted on the website. It has received RA, otherwise it simply wouldn't be called an Act.

    That's crazy, I wish more people were involved in politics like we are so they'd understand what's going on in parliament is actually affecting them

    Found your post an interesting one, it's the Draft Communications Data Bill aka Snooper's Charter. Requires mobile and Internet service providers to maintain a record of each user's internet browsing history for a period of 1 year. The Draft Investigatory Powers Bill has superseded it in the 2015-20 Parliament under the current Conservative majority administration.

    Guys! A recent example of the work of select committees is how Iain Wright, MP for Hartlepool and chairman of the business, innovation and skills committee is questioning Mike Ashley about Sports Directs Factory in Shirebrook (i believe thats the place)
