Nanny's Right of Entry

Nanny's Right of Entry
Following on from that most excellent article, wot I wrote, about the man who was found "In Flagrante Delicto" with a bike. I would note that aside from the issue about whether he should be on a sex offenders' register for that, there is also the issue about the right of entry into someone's home (in this case a master key was used to gain access to his room).

It seems that all manner of people can come barging into your home, using a variety of rather dubious pretexts and excuses.

In fact there are 266 powers under which Nanny can come into you home.

Our good old chums in HMRC can of course enter homes with a writ to seize suspected smuggled goods, no surprises there. However, it seems that others too can enter your home.

Did you know that Nanny's chums in the Environment Department can pay a call, using the Bees Act 1980?

Harry Snook has written a pamphlet called "Crossing the Threshold: 266 Ways the State Can Enter Your Home". This shows that the majority of these powers of entry were created by Nanny over the last 20 years.

These "entry powers" include the right of Ofcom to search your home for an unlicensed television set, to those of social services to check whether it is being used for unlicensed "early years child-minding".

Heard of the Weeds Act?

No I hadn't either.

The Weeds Act allows Nanny to enter your home to look for...errmmm...virulent weeds.

Try to obstruct Nanny when she enters, and she will slap a £5K fine on you.

We are a nation of pussies, for allowing ourselves to be pushed around by the state like this.

  1. I have just read the document....Scarey isn't it?

    New saying: An Englishman's home is his castle, subject to 266 exemptions.

    Cue the "If you have done nothing wrong, you have nothing to worry about brigade"

    Didn't someone do a song about this some years ago?
    'They've got a stutory right of entry to your home' something like that.

    Ok, imagine the scene; you're laid on the bed in your hotel room, watching the soft-porn channel which is supplied (at vast profit) by the hotel.

    Gradually, the desire to have a quick 'J.Arthur' creeps up on you; you give in to the temptation.

    Somewhere about the twentieth stroke there is a knock at the door.

    Being otherwise engaged you ignore it. The knocking continues; so do you.

    Suddenly, the door bursts open and you are caught 'in flagrante' by someone who expresses their disgust at your perverted activities.

    Do You:
    a) put down your weapon and say "It's a fair cop"?

    b) Carry on regardless.

    c) Leap from your bed. threaten the intruders asking, "What the hell do you think you're doing breaking into my room?"

    d) Call the manager and complain bitterly; making threats not to pay the bill?

    e) Do you call the police and lay a complaint of trespass against the intruders?

    A few years ago, of course. the answer would have been clear; any, or all, of options c, d and e.
    Now it seems that only option 'a' remains open.

    But - of course - if you had had nothing to hide, you would have had nothing to fear.

    It really is time that we all stopped complaining and,instead, did something to actively stop these little fascist bastards.

  4. When Nanny feels truly liberal, she will abolish prisons.
    People will simply be locked into their own homes.
