April Fool? Maybe not.

When I heard about this yesterday on the radio, I did initially think it must be an April Fool stunt. Even at midnight, I still wasn't sure...
but it's still being reported and discussed.
What does that say about government initiatives when you have to question whether or not they are joking?

And the coalition pantomime horse partners opposed this idea when Labour tried it. This about turn suggests they know something that maybe we should too.

Either that or it's to stop us talking about pasties, petrol and plonkers in government.

Well I thought the petrol scare was to distract us from the Granny tax so, who knows???

Considering the amount of Emails, blogs, tweets, facebook comments, etc, each day; they're going to need an army of surveillance people. Maybe it's just a way of reducing unemployment to zero.

Nothing would surprise me these days, Cro.

The mind boggles to imagine how they are going to police this. Perhaps it is to encourage us to go back to using snail mail.

Becca said...

It is invading of privacy, but @ Cro Magnon is right they need army of surveillance team to monitor the email of millions of people that has email account.Let's see how they're work with it.

That's why I suspected that it was an April Fool joke, CW.
