+ - David Cameron says fictional crime proves why Snooper's Charter is necessary->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "You may recall the stories from the past couple years about the so-called "snooper's charter" in the UK — a system to further legalize the government's ability to spy on pretty much all communications. It was setting up basically a total surveillance system, even beyond what we've since learned is already being done today. Thankfully, that plan was killed off by Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg.

However, Prime Minister David Cameron is back to pushing for the snooper's charter — and his reasoning is as stupid as it is unbelievable. Apparently, he thinks it's necessary because the fictional crime dramas he watches on TV show why it's necessary."
