Recession, illegal databases and a £105bn spend on more intrusive spying

23 March, 2009

Power to the People In another example of this government paying lip service to the rights and freedoms of the individual, The Joseph Rowntree Reform Trust, suggests that some 25% of government databases are actually illegal, either under Human Right Legislation or the Data Protection Act. As you would expect from a government that has […]

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 […]

LibDems launch Freedom Act to address Police state

27 February, 2009

Power to the People Finally, one of the major political parties has come out and made a clear and unequivocal statement in favour of returning power to the people. The LibDems have promised to repeal the series of authoritarian measures introduced by New Labour, which has lead, to put it in their words, to the […]

New Travel Database in Big Brother Britain

8 February, 2009

Power to the People At a time when we should all be considering tightening our belts, the Labour government of Big Brother Britain has decided to set up yet another database to spy and record details of British citizens, this time on our travel. Once again, this has is being justified on the pretext of national […]

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 […]

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 […]
