STATEBOOK … A new personal data-sharing resource for (no … about) the busy, compliant New British citizen

20 April, 2009

David Davis I am indebted to The Blog Of Kev for this highly humorous and chilling reminder about the ongoing covert presence of our masters and their datamining apparatchiks. There is really nothing more to add. Except to the list of “agencies” that can get it. If you have nothing to hide, you have nothing […]

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 […]

Bristol Dave and CCTV cameras in his city…

David Davis I commend to readers here the pages of Bristol Dave, and in particular this frightening post…..

Dr Sean Gabb on “how to destroy the Enemy Class”: the Big-Brother-State will then shrivel to the size of a pickled prune

10 November, 2008

David Davis I make no apology for re-syndicating a seminal paper by Sean Gabb, Director of the Libertarian Alliance, from 2001. The problems of Big-Brother-Statism have got only worse since then because too few people have paid attention. The broad Enemy Class relies on the fact that it’s made us become too busy even to […]

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 […]
