Data retention slips into law

Karlin wrote a great piece on data retention legislation in last Friday’s Irish Times. The best part of the article was the final paragraph.

And so here we are, the best little banana-republic style state in the EU, sneaking in the laws we don’t want the citizens to see, willing to risk the State’s future economic health and business environment in order to make one Minister’s quest for a surveillance state a success.

I could not agree more. I am sure Karlin will be publishing the full piece on her blog soon, it is well worth the read.
