New UK government to scale back surveillance

According to the CBC, the new UK government plans to scale back many of the grossly intrusive surveillance measures adopted and planned by the previous government. This includes more closely regulating CCTV, abandoning the national identity card programme and limiting the retention of DNA samples.

All welcome news.
