UK Pirate Party leader Loz Kaye said that the revelation comes at a time when people are increasingly worried about privacy.

"These revelations are a further embarrassment for the UK. What with this, GCHQ and TEMPORA it's a wonder that anyone wants to come here at all. Once again we can see mission creep in the name of fighting terrorism. It's not enough for the Met to say that the Terrorism Act 2000 is subject to scrutiny, it's the powers themselves that are too broad," said Kaye.
