Manchester Police to use Mobile CCTV

11 April, 2009

Power to the People Not satisfied with 4.2m CCTV cameras, speed cameras and ANPR, the Greater Manchester Casualty Reduction Partnership has now introduced (as a pilot) a Smart Car complete with high level CCTV camera. The aim is to catch errant motorists that speed, use a mobile phone, park illegally or commit any other form […]

MP’s to vote on hiding their expense claims from the public

20 January, 2009

Power to the People Whilst members of parliament are for the most part at least, quite happy to do little or nothing while this government introduces legislation designed to spy on our emails, telephone calls and web browsing habits, they do believe there should be a debate when it comes to them revealing (under the […]

Teenagers, thou shalt not smoke

9 December, 2008

Another pointless piece of tokenism by this control obsessed Labour government is the ban on displaying cigarettes, ostensibly to discourage under age smokers. A commendable goal, but surely even they can work out that it is not the display of cigarettes that encourages youngsters to smoke, but easy access, peer pressure and so on, none […]

European Court of Human Rights upholds British liberties

5 December, 2008

Power to the People I am delighted to confirm that Jacqui Smith is “disappointed” by the ruling given yesterday relating to her insistence that Big Brother Britain be entitled to store the DNA and fingerprint profiles of any British subject that is arrested but not charged, or arrested and subsequently acquitted. Clearly, the only reason […]

Soon, we shall be able to be pre-arrested.

28 November, 2008

David Davis I spotted this in the Daily Mail here. Nice to think that a camera, aided and abetted by some amateur watchers, will be able to decide if one is dodgy or not. I also think that Old Holborn commented on it too and alerted The Landed Underclass, who has thought up a nicely […]

David Cameron, Police action is Stalinesque

28 November, 2008

Power to the People How ironic that it has taken the arrest of Damian Green, the Shadow Immigration Minister to provoke David Cameron into describing the police as “Stalinesque“. Because his party has sat on its hands whilst this Labour government has consistently removed the rights and civil liberties of every single person in this country. What […]

Stop protesting or we shoot

27 November, 2008

Power to the People News that Jacqui Smith feels obliged to order another 10,000 Tasers at a time when the government coffers are empty has to be worrying for the British public. Whilst we know that this government doesn’t really care about how much of our money they spend, because they can just put up our taxes, the […]

Scottish Parliament rejects ID cards

22 November, 2008

Power to the People Now, whilst I fully accept that this will not make one jot of difference to the current Labour government it is nonetheless, symbolic given it demonstrates that the government will have an uphill struggle to introduce identity cards. Scottish MSP’s do not believe ID cards will increase security or deter crime […]

Data Communications Bill shelved

21 November, 2008

Power to the People News that the Data Communication Bill has been shelved will be welcomed by all those that have campaigned against it. Needless to say, the government claim that it has nothing to do with those that are against this Big Brother Britain bill and everything to do with the fact that MP’s need to […]

Organ Donors, Gordon Brown knows best

18 November, 2008

Power to the People I don’t want to get into a debate as to the rights and wrongs of whether people should agree to donate their organs, although I am willing to state, for the record, that I support the organ donor programme. What concerns me is when government, in spite of advice to the […]
