    Les Heimann believes that the data retention proposal is about catching “those murderous terrorists beheading maiming and injuring thousands of innocents every day”. But how does he think that will happen? Has the evidence from any other country’s data retention scheme suggested that terrorists can or have been caught by this sort of spying? If so, what’s the evidence? Come on Les, put up some evidence rather than just parroting the seemingly senseless drivel from our politicians of both stripes.

    Why did Les Heimann not simply write “if you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear” and save a few electrons ?
