"The Sunday Times carries this interesting announcement by the TaxPayers' Alliance, of a new campaign called "Big Brother Watch".
Their website www.bigbrotherwatch.org.uk currently states that this is due to launch in October.
The fight against the "surveillance state" is obviously necessary, but what exactly can this new campaign achieve, that the existing campaign groups could not do just as well, or much better, if they had some more money ?
Why exactly should Spy Blog, or anybody else who cares about these issues, support Yet Another Campaign Organisation rather than existing ones like:
- the NO2ID Campaign,
- Privacy International,
- GeneWatch UK ,
- the Open Rights Group
- the Foundation for Information Policy Research
- Action on Rights for Children
- Liberty Human Rights
