First it was Dellers and now it is Booker, each with their own take on "Snoopergate". Putting it very neatly into focus, Booker tells us that, whenever the Government comes up with some proposal which is hugely unpopular and the justification for which is not immediately clear – from charging VAT on hot pies to creating a high-speed rail service from London to Birmingham – it is always worth inquiring as to whether there is some hidden European dimension at work.

And that is exactly what we did, coming up first with this and then this. And it wasn't at all difficult to put together the pieces. Clues as to what is going on, writes Booker, proliferate in all directions. Last November, the Government announced that it would spend £650 million on beefing up British cyber-security as part of its Strategic Defence and Security Review; and that top British firms were to be offered the chance to buy top-secret security software from GCHQ.

Richard, how if at all, does the UK/EU surveillance plan tie-in with what is apparently being implemented in the US?

Again, there seems to be a collective madness in the Western World. Dr Strangelove may have been a documentary after all.

Prior to the general election both Clegg and Cameron made out they were very opposed to the Labour party ID card scheme. They went as far as being very supportive of the civil liberties groups that campaigned against this. We now see this was just posturing to win votes. And make no mistake here Labour lost a lot of support on this issue.

We should also remember the position of the Universities on global warming and climate 'science'. They will see this cyber-surveillance work as another opportunity for them to go empire building and I suspect be equally as slippery as they were on the climate subject.

I am not sure whether they are in competition, or working together.

Or is "this" just another propaganda twist to beef up UN powers?

I would like to point out that twice, I have lived in Cheltenham, a very nice place. You must take a drink in the Rotunda. Georgian excellence. Otherwise, apart from Gold Cup weekend, a pretty tame place.

There are also beautiful Georgian Crescents and great "Public" schools.

I had to leave both times because it was boring.
