Don't be naive, they are not looking for bin laden, they are looking at you and me. briton is spending $380 pounds per minute spying on their citizens, what do you bet we are spending 10 times that amount? We are broke - except for spying, military and police.
An astonishing £380 a minute will be spent on surveillance in a massive expansion of the Big Brother state.

It is a 1,700 per cent increase on the cost of the current surveillance regime.
