Where Priorities lie

When it comes to legislation that purports to protect us from terrorism - by logging every phone call we make, every bit of email we get or send - every webpage we visit - and packet sniff (fnoarh fnoarh) through everything we download just incase it's a violation of copyright - no problem. They're right on that.

Archiving what will inevitably prove to be an important part of our social history - the UK Gov. is not so interested in that. In America-land they've had the wayback machine through archive.org for quite a few years now... but in the UK... mmmm, nadir. Ziltch. Nuffin.

It's as much as what a Govt. isn't obsessed about as what it is - that says a lot about that Govt.
