Grassroot activists vent their anger over threat to civil liberties posed by 'Big Brother' proposals
Saturday 07 April 2012
More than 150 Liberal Democrat activists have warned Nick Clegg he could destroy the party's liberal identity if he backs government plans to allow the authorities to monitor online activity.
