In 2012 Theresa May and the Tories tabled plans to force internet service providers to keep a record of all your texts, emails and every website you visit.
That was a huge invasion of our privacy, an unprecedented a precursor attempt to get hold of everybody's personal data.
The Liberal Democrats were clear then, and are clear now, a snooper’s charter has no place in Britain, so we blocked it.
Theresa May’s revised plans that are published today are another attempt to sneak these provisions back in again.
The Liberal Democrats will fight any attempt to bring back the so-called Snooper’s Charter under a different name.
