Politicians have exempted themselves from Britain's new wide-ranging spying laws.As J.R. "Bob" Dobbs said, "I don't practice what I preach because I'm not the kind of person I'm preaching to."
The Investigatory Powers Act, which has just passed into law, brings some of the most extreme and invasive surveillance powers ever given to spies in a democratic state. But protections against those spying powers have been given to MPs.
Most of the strongest powers in the new law require that those using them must be given a warrant. That applies to people wanting to see someone's full internet browsing history, for instance, which is one of the things that will be collected under the new law.
