Martha Spurrier | Posted 01.08.2017 | UK Politics
Martha Spurrier

Privacy is a fundamental human right and a necessity in the modern world.

The new report will not help to reduce this but is increasing the worries about the UK negotiating with limited information on what environment we need to convince the 3.2 million not to leave our current employers, whether it is the NHS or the private sector.

Yet just like Cameron's reckless gamble on an EU referendum, May's hubristic decision to call a snap election has failed and failed spectacularly.
