A controversial internet security plan to store the web history of all Australians for up to two years has been stalled by the federal government until after the next election.
Security bureaucrats have drafted legislation to expand internet surveillance and security powers, but Attorney-General Nicola Roxon decided to first refer a discussion paper to a parliamentary committee.
Senior intelligence officials, who have been pushing for the increased powers, complain the legislation will be delayed until after the election due next year.
Seriously, fuck this. Having your web history stored for two years because some wanker cunt in intelligence wants it? What the fuck? Are we all criminals? Our government thinks so. If this does go ahead. I hope someone makes a little plugin for a our browser of choice. One that constantly pulls up random websites so these fuckers get huge logs of totally useless information.
