Big Brother rules in Britain

An emerging police state?

As England moves toward it’s version of the New World Order, we have already noted their excessive CCTV surveillance policy in pubs and restaurants as well as their move to have ‘energy police’ call on every household to ensure their citizens are not wasting energy.

Now we find:

waste collection crews are being issued with devices featuring GPS technology that allow councils to store a history of information about individual rubbish collections, including whether householders are failing to recycle properly.

Using new technology to build a better world is one thing, using it to monitor (or police) the population is quite another.

  1. Britain is increasingly sounding like a scary place.

    Anti-social behaviour order anyone? That kid with down syndrome had better stop looking over the fence or he’s going to jail.

  2. Today’s news reveals Remote-controlled planes could spy on British homes

    The Home Office has suggested that the remote-controlled drones could be used to help police gather evidence and track criminals without putting officers at risk.
    The miniature aircraft could be fitted with cameras and heat-seeking equipment, allowing police to carry out aerial reconnaissance from a control room.
    Ministers are speaking to the Civil Aviation Authority about the introduction of UAVs, some of which measure just 2ft across.

    Can’t you just see it – a domestic guerilla warfare program targeting the government’s toy spy planes that invade your private air space. 😉
    How you would deal with such invasion of privacy?

  3. England is truly eccentric. Iain Hall (an ex-Pom and a hard line conservative blogger from Qld) continually uses examples of ‘green madness’ or ‘political correctness’ from his homeland to try to make a point about ‘leftards’ over here. But it always misses the mark because … it’s about stupid Pommy behaviour and almost totally irrelevant to who-gives-a-shit OZ!

  4. … and the unstoppable march of Big Brother moves on:

    Sir David Omand, the former Whitehall security and intelligence co-ordinator, sets out a blueprint for the way the state will mine data – including travel information, phone records and emails – held by public and private bodies and admits: “Finding out other people’s secrets is going to involve breaking everyday moral rules.”

    It argues that while the measures are essential, public trust will be maintained only if such intrusive surveillance is carried out within a strong framework of morality and human rights.

    Yeah! Right!

  5. It seems the downtrodden in England are ready to fight back against the “database state”, counter-terrorism laws and press freedom to be discussed by campaigners at a Convention on Modern Liberty later.

    “Whether it’s using DNA, or surveillance, or big databases or very smart software that can identify where your car goes in the country – all sorts of things… are changing the balance between state and citizen and piece by piece everybody’s liberty, privacy, their rights are eroded.

    “What we have to do is fight every single one because over time governments will realise there is no political profit in this.”

    At the speed that Big Brother has been operating in England, it won’t be long before protest itself will be outlawed.
