There are sufficient laws in place to cover surveillance matters. There is absolutely no need to invade the privacy of the ordinary citizen. I am very fearful that Australia is building the infrastructure of fascist regimes using well known phrases and tactics of such regimes to cover this tactic. Government should better spend time creating jobs than waste time on paranoia driven projects intended to create fear in the community and ongoing political power and unfair wealth division in the community
This has nothing to do with catching terrorist bogeymen . It is all about collecting data to enforce US laws in Australia after our kowtowing politicians sign the TPP.
