‘The Australian Government has now been labelled as the most intrusive government in the Western world. It has been revealed that on a per-capita basis, the Australian government spies on its citizens more than any other Western government.
In 2010-2011, more than 3,400 Australians had been spied on by more than 17 government law enforcement agencies. This includes state and federal police agencies, the Australian Tax Office (ATO) and Medicare.
The shocking truth is that these government agencies can access telephone and Internet data records without a warrant from a judge.’
