Our privileged elite get paranoid.

Oh dear. It seems that the security services think that they should be able to bug anyone. Sir John Walker, former chief of defence intelligence said that "If you're going to beat a terrorist threat of the nature of Al Qaeda, your primary weapon system against that terrorism is intelligence - and you cannot do intelligence with one hand tied behind your back,".

Well although I don't agree with that it seems that our lords and masters in the House of Commons do. It's been approved by them for use. So what is the issue? Ah! It appears that while it is OK to eavesdrop of the plebs in the street it's not OK when one of those being listened to is one of the elite. An MP no less. Read here about the hypocrisy of someone who is one of the elite who agreed bugging for everyone and then demand that they are excluded themselves.

Can’t work it out myself. If they have nothing to hide they have nothing to fear. Isn’t that what we get told? What is the problem then?

Well our security services seem to agree with you. Obviously a very suspecious character.
