The British home secretary Theresa May has described those opposed to the introduction of hugely intrusive telephone and Internet surveillance measures as “conspiracy theorists”.

On Thursday the government will publish in draft form details of a bill called the Communications Capabilities Development Programme (CCDP) which, if passed, will allow the police and intelligence services real-time access to details of all British phone calls and Internet activity.

The bill will therefore allow the state total surveillance of all British communications – including phone numbers and email addresses of people you have been in contact with, as well as exactly where and when the contact took place – without the need for a warrant, or even any suspicion that you have been involved in criminal activity.
