A mass movement is needed to tackle the state’s snoopers by Henry Porter

Ministers will quickly lose their shame over the missing 25 million files and continue to stockpile our most personal secrets There’s no time to crow over the government’s loss of 25 million people’s details; no time to rejoice at the obvious mortification of Gordon Brown, Alistair Darling, his sidekick, Andy Burnham, Jacqui Smith and Harriet Harman.These people will not be deterred by the calamity of last week. They are shameless. In a month or two they will bounce back. The ID card scheme will be relaunched and Jacqui Smith will continue with her plans to demand 53 pieces of information from people before they travel abroad. The Children’s Index, the Children’s Assessment Framework, the National Health database, the ever-expanding police DNA database will all continue to scoop up information. Why? Because the control of the masses is coded in the deepest part of Labour’s being.
