I do think, though, the lousy little low-intelligent contractors on the other side of the pond who for money would probably even sell their grandmothers will neither get stopped by their masters nor by their conscience due to a petition signed by 500,000 or several millions of MUPs (Most unimportant persons); same goes for their British brothers in crime (GCHQ), and for any other secret service.
Alas! If at least they stopped to use the word 'intelligence' pertaining to their spooks. It's just ridiculous.

[The National Security Agency's] capability at any time could be turned around on the American people, and no American would have any privacy left, such is the capability to monitor everything: telephone conversations, telegrams, it doesn’t matter. There would be no place to hide.
Unwarranted government surveillance is an intrusion on basic human rights that threatens the very foundations of a democratic society.
