CassetteBoy has launched its take on the Snooper's Charter - and it pulls absolutely no punches, as you'd expect.

If you're unfamiliar with the Snooper's Charter, it is formally known as the Draft Communications Data Bill and essentially bestows powers upon the police to access everyone’s web browsing histories and to hack into phones.

Naturally, the choice of song for the remix was Every Breath You Take by The Police.

Potentially our favourite lyric of the video, which was a collaborative effort with Privacy International, is:
