Is this Big Brother watching us?

Published 06/11/2013

I ORDERED 10 white poppies from the Stop the War Coalition website using my credit card. Within five minutes, I received a text from Tesco Bank asking me to ring them urgently.

They said they were making a security check, because of recent suspicious activity on my account.

They asked me to verify some recent transactions, including this last one, which I did. As soon as I hung up I felt a shudder.

Am I being paranoid or had the covert eyes of the state just turned in my direction?
