America claims privacy invasion but British intercepted all Irish communications in early 1990s


It is a clear statement from the Court of Human Rights that indiscriminate surveillance will generally be incompatible with the right to privacy under the European Convention on Human Rights.”

Nothing much has changed in the interim I gather with cases still pending.

So next time the British or Irish begin reporting on how intrusive the American spy system is, let them take a look at their own rules first.
