“We are in danger of becoming a surveillance state because of legislation that attacks our freedoms and civil liberties, with snooping into people’s private lives the norm.
Mr Locke has been at the forefront of protest. Keith says: “We have to wake up to the fact that the so-called ‘war against Nazism’ is being used as an excuse for a serious infringement of our human rights…”
