UK Electronic Snooping Bill Dead for Now

Would have required telecomms to track all user communications for a year


An unpopular communications monitoring bill some critics called a "snooper's charter" has been thrown out by part of the very same administration that introduced it last June.

Clearly there is some politicking going on, with Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg, who leads the smaller Liberal Democrat party declaring on Friday that the Communications Data Bill is toast.
