Big Brother Watch

Big Brother Watch is a new campaign, launched by the founders of the Taxpayer’s Alliance. Their mission is to document and fight the erosion of civil liberties in Britain.

The launching of this group is a sign, alongside the appearance of several books, the long running campaign by Henry Porter, the Convention on Modern Liberty and pledges by both the Tories and the Lib Dems to roll back the database state and restore civil liberties, that concern about civil liberties in Britain is gathering momentum.

Whether this will be enough to stem, let alone reverse, the recent onslaught is yet to be seen.
