UK SPY AGENCY GCHQ has been accused of being even more nosey, a Radiohead fan, and of being a bit of a nuisance when it comes to privacy.
GCHQ has excelled itself in the snooping stakes, according to a report on The Intercept, a news site that is close to Edward Snowden, and thus close to this kind of revelation.
The report said, quite simply, that the aim of the Karma Police system is to “record the website browsing habits of every visible user on the internet”. The suggestion is that this includes everything from radio shows to adult websites.
We have asked GCHQ about this, but we suspect that it was already aware of the interest. The department replied rather quickly, saying in an official statement that this is not the sort of thing that it talks about or condones.
