Why again?

Or, maybe the BNP electoral success train can be attributed to this:

a withering report on the impact of surveillance on society released by a House of Lords committee today.

"Surveillance is an inescapable part of life in the UK," the peers' select committee on the constitution laments. "Every time we make a telephone call, send an email, browse the internet, or even walk down our local high street, our actions may be monitored and recorded.

"To respond to crime, combat the threat of terrorism and improve administrative efficiency, successive UK governments have gradually constructed one of the most extensive and technologically advanced surveillance systems in the world."
