Privacy has never been "an absolute right", the new director of GCHQ claimed yesterday.

Writing in the Financial Times, Robert Hannigan implied that breaches of privacy were needed to protect national security, and that US tech companies were "in denial" about the misuse of their services by terrorists.

According to Hannigan, most internet users "would be comfortable with a better and more sustainable relationship between the [intelligence] agencies and the tech companies”.
