In addition to police-monitored cameras all over the country, the government of Britain has decided to track every single user's internet usage. Data will be retained for a year and can be accessed without a warrant, simply by obtaining the authorization of a senior police officer or deputy head of department. Over 600 different government agencies will have access to this information, including police, local councils, and tax authorities.
