Since when is log retention evil?

Here is a funny one: UK government calls for longer log retention by the ISP and is labeled a villain as a result. So now saving logs is evil?

"ISPA said that the UK government had won the award for 'seeking EU wide data retention laws which will force ISPs and telcos to retain more data for longer without proper impact assessment'."

I see a lot of business for SIEM and log management vendors here...
