I just don’t get how the British can put up with so much violation of their personal freedoms with such amount of snooping into their personal lives by their government!

In this article “Jimmy Wales, talking in a purely personal capacity, has lambasted Britain’s Home Office for its plans to massively increase online surveillance of all UK citizens. The Maximum Leader says that such a draconian measure would prevent him from plonking Wikipedia servers on Blighty’s soil.

Talking in Westminster last night to a committee of MPs and peers, however, Jimbo omitted to mention that his online encyclopedia outfit has never operated from the UK – and has no intention of ever doing so – because of the nation’s strict laws on defamatory material.
