It’s a step away from seeing me cheat at home aerobics

COMMENT: University has to prove it offers value for money

Have your say

Wow, I never thought the USA’s National Security Agency would want to see pictures of my cat, less-than-flattering pictures of me running, my musings on how good the Stone Roses were at Finsbury Park last weekend and the last song I downloaded (Daft Punk’s Get Lucky).

But apparently GCHQ is in league with the NSA to look at our Facebook and iTunes accounts and other online information.

We’ve known this has been happening for years as part of fight to stop terrorists in their tracks. But this new scandal is how some companies may have helped the security agencies do it.

All I know is it’s all very Orwellian and one step away from someone in my TV who can see me cheating at aerobics.
