CuteSteveJobs (1343851) writes "Australian Attorney-General, Nicola Roxon has now fully backs a controversial plan to capture the online data of all Australians, despite only six weeks ago saying ''the case had yet to be made." The Tax Office, the Federal Police and the Opposition all support it, with Federal Liberal Party MP Ross Vasta declaring "the highest degree of scrutiny and diligence is called for." With all major parties on board, web monitoring of all Australians appears to be inevitable."
