GCHQ Spy Programme with Secret Link to Scottish Police

Salmond and All Other Professional Politicians are Complicit In This Scheme To Enslave You! Reject Them All.
ECRET reports leaked by US whistleblower Edward Snowden have revealed how UK mass surveillance of phone and internet activity was accessed by Scottish police forces. The documents confirm that a little-known policing body called the Scottish Recording Centre (SRC) was given access to information logs that include millions of communications data, including phone activity, internet histories and social media behaviour on Facebook.
The confirmation that UK state spy agency GCHQ ran a specific programme, called “Milkwhite”, to share data with devolved policing and tax authorities is the first Snowden leak to directly implicate Scottish authorities in the controversial policy of bulk data collection. American news site The Intercept, which has access to the Snowden files, explained Milkwhite gave “an obscure Scotland-based surveillance unit” access to “huge troves of meta-data” from UK state surveillance.
