Qoute ” The UK government has revealed that intelligence service GCHQ can snoop on British citizens’ use of Facebook and Google without an individual warrant because the firms are based overseas.

UK spy boss Charles Farr said that the services are classified as external communications.

The policy was revealed as part of a continuing legal battle with campaign group Privacy International (PI).

PI said the interpretation of the law “patronises the British people”.

It is the first time the UK has commented on how its legal framework allows the mass interception of communications as outlined by US whistleblower Edward Snowden in his leaks about global government surveillance.”
