Secret Police: Police told not to wear uniforms

So now we are to have secret police?

No doubt, to match:

  • our secret laws (that only the ‘security services’ and ‘child protective agencies’ may know about;
  • our secret courts, which operate outside of public scrutiny and which are entirely unaccountable.

Given the massive body of complicated law that we now have in this country, and that we are probably deemed to have broken the law umpteen times on a daily basis, are we are now to be entrapped going about our daily business by secret police?

How sinister is that?

BBC Licence fee share-out: a lure to capture the press?

I can only surmise that the government’s attempt to muzzle the press via a Royal Charter is not going well. Or perhaps our Dear Leader is merely lining up the next assault on the press, should his Royal Charter gambit not succeed.

We now learn that Grant Schapps, is considering depriving the BBC of its sole right to the licence fee – and would have us believe that such a move would be as a consequence to the BBC’s paedophile ‘scandals’ and fiscal impropriety.  A better and more popular penalty  would have been to begin dismantling the BBC licence fee system. But on that issue, Schapps was deafeningly silent. Under no circumstances would the government willingly relinquish its propaganda arm.

Instead, its cunning plan is to lure the free market broadcasters into its welfare trap. It worked on nearly half of our population, didn’t it?

Will what remains of the the free press be stupid or greedy or desperate enough to fall for it?  It is not impossible to imagine Telegraph TV, for instance, being temped, given the Telegraph’s ailing finances.

Oh, and when will we see police investigations into paedophile politicians?

Back door “snoopers’ charter” via Google

In view of the GCHQ spying operations on the public via the NSA, it is clear that the British government is paying the US government (amongst others) to spy on us, the population – the people whose liberties they are avowed to protect.  And we’re paying for our own surveillance prison.

It seems to me that the US wants the UK in the EU because it has always wanted to set up a global surveillance network.  The UK was its conduit. Via Google, et al, of course.

stelliosmavrakis‘s take on Google increasingly common:

“There was an article in the Telegraph a few days ago on Google’s plans to map and street view every inch of the planet. This was my comment in response to this, starting with the relevant paragraph from the article, to put my comment in context.
‘Our goal is to put together a sort of digital mirror of the world,” says Dan Sieberg, a Google exec and self-described “evangelist” for the Google Maps revolution. (Religious imagery comes naturally to Googlers: one of Sieberg’s colleagues describes him as a “guru”. The whole company has a slight hippy-cult feel to it’

So there we are, the greatest most comprehensive surveillance machine created and put in place by a bunch of  ‘get obscenely  rich’ so called ‘hippies,’ a machine will be refined and honed to perfection by Governments as they slowly bit by bit  implement mechanisms for totalitarian control of their ‘citizens’.
Oh, how the authorities must be rubbing their hands together at the prospect at all this, that  systems, that they know they themselves could never impose on the ‘people,’ are being put in place by intelligent, but seriously naïve profit driven ‘Google world zealots’ who have zero forward vision and delude themselves, that at the same time, they are somehow carrying forward the anti materialistic, and anti authoritarian hippy flag mantra, a whole life philosophy that just  ‘Google Glasses’ alone, is the absolute antithesis of, which or course will soon be worn by police, parking attendants, refuse collectors and all the rest of the usual collection of small minded officials  and ‘jobs worths.’

OK, I know, I know, Google, if you didn’t do it someone else would, but what is your ‘famous’ strapline then, that ‘good people’ do nothing about’ for it to exist in the first place.
Thanks Google! for a wonderful world! How future generations will look back and thank you.

Well, basically it horrifies me to be proved 100% right immediately, as I thought this level of extreme control was still a few years way, but why is it that the majority of people are totally blind to the ghastly world that computer technology is creating? and the staggering obvious fact that by such appalling abuse by the ‘authorities’ of private citizens rights, it destroys the very principles that western democracy is founded on. Basically the terrorists have already won.”

Of course, if we all stopped using Google, its fortunes and its influence would evaporate:  it feeds off our searches and communications.

Stop feeding the Google search engine, the Gmail account, G+, the Google phone, the apps, the Google blogs.  Ditch the lot.

Instead of Google eating us for lunch, let’s gobble it up and spit it out.

Quit the Google habit!
