The state can watch you, but you can’t watch the state…

Daily Mail

For rank hypocrisy, look no further than the Government’s inconceivable decision to make it a criminal offence – punishable with a jail term of up to 10 years –  to take a picture of a policeman.

Everywhere we go, the police – under instruction from Ministers – are watching our every move.

There are more than four million CCTV cameras in the UK, the largest number in the world. Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) cameras follow our every car journey, and officers are now routinely deployed at major public gatherings with cameras on their helmets.

Police are even beginning to insist that pubs – as a condition of being granted a licence – install CCTV cameras to watch their regulars having a drink.

Our movements are also being tracked using our genetic fingerprints, long after we have left the scene. Hundreds of thousands of people never convicted of any offence now have their DNA stored on the Government’s Big Brother database – the largest in the world.

Yet do the police (or at least their Government masters) mind us watching them in return? Absolutely not. That would never do.

The Prevention of Terrorism Act 2000 has been used to stop a staggering 62,584 people at railway stations. Another 87,000 were questioned under separate ‘stop and search’ and ‘stop and account’ legislation.

One schoolboy was even held as a terror suspect for taking photographs of a railway station during a school geography field trip.

Of course, we should not be surprised that the defence for this latest draconian step is counter-terrorism.

Remember, throughout HISTORY, governments have used fear as a pretext for imposing the worst kind of tyranny/ slavery on the population. That is what is happening, nothing less, and if you want more information, read Ian Parker-Joseph’s blog.

Gestapo and SOCA – how similar?

Search Gestapo…

This is not a joke. This is deadly serious…

  1. Yup.


    I’ve often wondered why WE, the people, don’t have a microphone & a webcam in each and every elected official’s office… that we can log into any time of the day or night, to see what our illustrious leaders are up to. And perhaps an RFID chip shoved up their ass so we can track their movements within Parliament too… to make sure they actually are where they are supposed to be when they are ‘working’… FOR US! THEIR BOSSES!

    After all, if they aren’t doing anything wrong, then what have they got to hide?


  2. Baby P’s mother would get out of jail sooner than someone who captured a photo of a police officer committing a crime.

    Labour/Libs/Tories are all the same. They all want this. I’ll bet at the next election, BNP, UKIP, etc will all be banned from running. That way they can say you have elections but don’t need to worry about the voters securing any liberty ever again.

    This is what America is like: two parties, both the same control everything and try to pretend they are oppositional toward each other. Freedom doesn’t stand a chance.
