The Great DNA Database fudge

7 May, 2009

Power to the People The Home Office has outlined a series of proposals in relation to the DNA database designed to counter the ruling by the European Court of Human Rights that it was illegal. However, in doing so, they have demonstrated utter contempt for the ruling, choosing instead to go for a fudge. If […]

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 […]

And we now all live in the GBDR

David Davis Hat tip Obnoxio the Clown.

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 […]

Scary video

8 November, 2008

David Davis This is a bit scary, but hey now! You didn’t come to this blog to be told how nice it is to live under a Panopticon State. This stuff has not been viewed enough for our liking here, so we will forthwith promote it:-

Waking up, slowly…..

David Davis This just spotted, on something called Kandylini’s.

How the Conservatives were the first party in modern-times to propose State Identity Cards

8 November, 2008

David Davis (not that one…) Amid the current ID-card-driven masturbatory glee of our “home” “secretary”, “Jacqui” “Smith” over how many people “come up to her and say they want one” (one what?), it’s worth recalling what Michael Howard said in 1994. So, here I reprint a pamphlet by Dr Sean Gabb making the case comprehensively […]
