UK web surveillance plans 'spectacularly mishandled'

The Home Office has said laws allowing the monitoring all emails, texts and web use in the UK will be brought in "as soon as parliamentary time allows".

Home Secretary Theresa May says "ordinary people" will have nothing to fear- but there is opposition to the idea from all sides of the House of Commons.

Labour leader Ed Miliband said the plans to monitor communications data were unclear, and were being "spectacularly mishandled" by the government.
