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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
