No limits to state surveillance in UK, says Edward Snowden
October 13 , 2014
The surveillance system being run by British authorities goes far deeper than anything seen in the US, former NSA contractor Edward Snowden has said.
Speaking on Skype at London’s Observer Ideas festival, the whistleblower said GCHQ’s surveillance capabilities had “really no limits.” He said authorities in the UK collect “everything that might be interesting.”
On a more personal note, when asked about his girlfriend joining him in Russia, Snowden said “it was an incredible reunion.”
