COUNCILS ARE NOW USING RIPA

Many of those spied upon will have no idea they have been subjected to surveillance, as those who are innocent have no right to know.
Last night Shadow Home Secretary David Davis said: 'This is a stark demonstration of how the surveillance society has got out of control with the improper use of very broad powers  -  powers that the public would expect to be used only for serious crime and security threats.'
