Bugging MPs

According to the Independent on Sunday, "Tony Blair is preparing to scrap a 40-year ban on tapping MPs' telephones, despite fierce Cabinet opposition"

Francis Eliot says

"Nobody is off limits in the Prime Minister's war on terror. Now he wants to dispose of the 'Wilson Doctrine' and bug his own MPs. But does the state need more power to spy on us?"

I imagine the political cartoonists will be smiling at the opportunities this story provides.
