Comment: When a newspaper does this it’s a national scandal, yet when the government does it barely anyone bats an eyelid.

MI5 agents mistakenly listened to innocent people’s phone calls after writing down the wrong numbers in secret surveillance operations, a report has revealed.
There were at least 30 cases where officers from the Security Service and the Serious Organised Crime Agency tapped the wrong telephones, a review has found.
On grounds of national security, none of the victims have been identified or told their phones were wrongly intercepted.
But the report by the Interception of Communications Commissioner Sir Paul Kennedy makes clear the cases involved were only a fraction of the thousands of interceptions authorised by Ministers each year.
