"David Blunkett has admitted he blundered with the controversial 'snoop'
plans to give a raft of public bodies access to e-mail and mobile phone

The proposals are to be put on hold indefinitely in the face of huge
opposition, which the home secretary conceded his department totally
failed to predict."

It's a small victory, but I can see this one running and running.
