Is the UK government being candid about objectives of new Travel Database?

17 March, 2009

Power to the People Whatever the government tries to tell us, the new travel database has little to do with securing our borders and more to do with controlling and monitoring the activities or each and every British citizen. In fact, with the new telecommunications database, which will monitor every email, text message and mobile […]

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 […]

Next step in BBB is Censorship of the press!

16 November, 2008

Power to the People A common denominator of countries described by outsiders and campaigners as being a police state, oppressive or anti-democratic, is state control of, alternatively over, the press. A free press is seen by the outside world as one of the most significant factors in determining whether or not a country is democratic and free. So why is it, […]

The farce of Criminal Records Bureau checks

13 November, 2008

Power to the People As Big Brother Britain gathers pace, news is released that more than 12,000 people had Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) checks completed on them, which indicated that they had a criminal record, when in fact that was not the case. That is not a statistic, but 12,000 individuals that have incorrectly been […]

Time to stop Government waste

12 November, 2008

Power to the People At a time when every political party is talking about tax cuts, I think it is a time to consider all government ‘pet’ projects, particularly those that have limited or no value. That is probably most of the IT projects. In particular, I would like to see the government cancel some of […]

National register of voters

9 November, 2008

British Politics In yet another example of the government riding roughshod over the people of this country is the news that they are moving ahead in any event with plans to establish a centralised national register of voters, together with central checking and verification of the data held on electoral registers. The system, to be implemented in […]

Big Brother Britain and the fight back

9 November, 2008

Firstly I would like to thank David Davis at the Libertarian Alliance for agreeing to contribute unique articles to this blog on the subject of Big Brother Britain. I originally set up this blog, because whilst I have my own blog containing my views and opinions of British politics (Power to the People), I felt that […]

Hazel Blears politically naive?

7 November, 2008

Well, yes I think she probably is, which would explain why she has been given the position of Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government. Given the state of both, she needs to spend more time in the office and less at the Hansard Society. It would appear that Hazel, I hope such an important person, at […]

Jacqui Smith, ID cards and Big Brother Britain

7 November, 2008

Stop it Now! Up until a few months ago, the only person I knew that supported the introduction of identity cards, was my wife. After a few heated debates, questions, answers and what-if’s, she eventually conceded that it wasn’t such a great idea. We have a very democratic process in our house, something like the […]
