1984 - The Reality

1984 - The Reality
Oh dear, it seems that Nanny has been reading Orwell's "1984".

All well and good, except that instead of taking it as a warning she is using it as a blueprint.

Nanny is thinking about spending £12BN on a database to monitor and store the internet browsing habits, e-mail and telephone records of everyone in Britain.

GCHQ, Nanny's eavesdropping centre, has already been given £1BN to start the ball rolling.

The Home Orifice, run by the ex Home Economics teacher (Jacqui Smith), is keen to stress that "no formal decision had been taken" (they say that when they want to gauge how angry people will be). However, our "respected" government ministers have already agreed "in principle" to the programme.

Nanny says that the live monitoring is necessary to fight terrorism and crime. Quite how Nanny can build a live system that can monitor eg an annual number of text messages of 57 billion is beyond me.

A few factoids:

1 It is immoral and repellent that our phone calls, emails and texts will be bugged by Nanny.

2 The state has proven itself incapable of implementing all large scale IT projects (eg NHS), Nanny will screw this up as well.

3 Data security is not Nanny's strong point, eg HMRC Datagate, the data gathered by this monstrosity will leak. Guaranteed!

4 1984 was a warning, not a blueprint!

    Nanny seems very paranoid at the moment......She have created a police state....Will a future government turn off such a system should it go ahead now?....I doubt it...Information is power and power is what career politicians of all parties seek.

    Once again the anti terror coverall to justify it....Of course, if you question the need for such a system, the Stepford Labour Robots will say, "So you support terrorism then?" or "So you are happy that the terrorists may blow up your children then?" or their classic, "If you've got nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear?"

    They don't get it....It is about personal freedom from undue intrusive interference by the state, into one's private life....Imagine if the Conservatives had ever proposed such a scheme when they were in power....The lefties would have made a real song and dance about it.

    Scratch the suface of English nanny's apron and you will find that behind the starch and prim manners she is only following orders from frau nanny the EU.

    The bugging and monitoring is, of course, an EU diktat and as such whatever we think will be enforced, as will road tolls, allowing the EU (the real government) to know exactly where you are and who you corresponded with at all times.

    On a happier note, isn't it nice that Mr Mandelson has come back from the EU to save Britain. Such patriotism in these times is to be applauded isn't it.

    Number 6:

    Yes, I accept the those unelected Nannies in Brussels are the ones with the real power but, "I'm only following orders." was not affcepted as an excuse in Nuremberg nor will it be now when our treasonous government are brought to book...How can they swear an oath to be loyal to the country and our monarch and then sell us off to the EUSSR and give away our sovereignty without being seen as traitors?

    All Stalinist states love data and as far as I am concerned, the EUSSR is the mother of all Stalinist states.
    The Little Red Books will be replaced with Pdf files and we will continue to be spied on and controlled by an unelected faceless government abley assisted by our so called elected reps here in the UK.

    I think that once Nanny joins all these databases together, so that each database can communicate with another and cross reference it's data, then the levels of control will increase and more and more of our freedoms will be eroded....In the name of the war on terror of course!!

    We've heard the song...."The shin bone's connected to the knee bone, the knee bone's connected to the......" Nanny's new version will be, "The id database is connected to the TV database, the TV database is connected to the HMRC database....." The future is not very attractive is is?

    I find this utterly repugnant. However, if 'no formal decision has been taken' why has GCHQ been given £1 billion towards this project? If, as our beloved leaders are so keen on telling us, money is so short, how come they can suddenly find £12 billion to spend on insidioue projects like this?

    ".... 'I'm only following orders.' was not accepted as an excuse in Nuremberg nor will it be now when our treasonous government are brought to book...How can they swear an oath to be loyal to the country and our monarch and then sell us off to the EUSSR and give away our sovereignty without being seen as traitors?"

    Can someone explain to me, the difference between these so-called 'leaders' of ours who, in my opinion, have sold the country down the river, and people like Kim Philby and Guy Burgess who betrayed the country and their own people when they spied for the Russians back in the 1960s?

    "On a happier note, isn't it nice that Mr Mandelson has come back from the EU to save Britain. Such patriotism in these times is to be applauded isn't it."

    This just about sums up nuLabour: bringing someone of his erm
    'talents' back into the government after giving him an undeserved (in my opinion) peerage tells us just as much about our illustrious leader as it does about him!
    It certainly does NOT make me happy!!

  5. fnhI would like to point out that people who are paid to collect data are also quite frequently expected to produce "results" from the data that they have collected.

    How do you think it will go over bureaucratically if Nanny's data hounds don't ferret out some nasty terrorists or criminal types for Nanny to punish? I think, not well.

    Nanny's data hounds will thus be under both political and bureaucratic pressure to show that their efforts are bearing fruit. Do you think this might affect the way in which they interpret the data which they have so assiduously gathered on every resident in the UK? Do you think they might begin to analyze that data with the same scrupulous regard for truth which was brought to intelligence analysis in the run-up to the Iraq invasion?


  6. The so called Global 'War on Terror' is in reality a 'War on Our Freedoms'.

    If Bin Laden (who I believe has been dead for several years from kidney disease) and Al-Qaeda really exist, as we are constantly told (and do your own research into just how the CIA helped arm and finance Bin Laden and the Mujahadin (who are now Al-Qaeda) in order to oust the Ruskies from Afghanistan), they must be laughing all the way to their caves by now. I seem to recall those war criminals Bush, Blair et al telling us that 'terrorists' would not be given in to, and would certanly not change our way of life.

    The real terrorists can be found in Westminster and Washington, once you realise the lies and reject the propaganda continually spewed forth by the controlled mainstream media and our criminal politicians.

    It seems to me that the current round of thinking tends more to "if you have nothing that anyone with a moral backbone would want to hide you are no use to us."

    Going public with faults and errors seems to be required for success. Mandy is an obvious example but one wonders if Prescott was serious about his secretary of merely suffered the effort in order to advance his flagging credibility with the party faithful.

    GB has a vast back catalogue of abject failures and dubious characters to choose from - should have no problem in finding a team with 'all the talents'.

    Will Windy Cameron respond by taking Archer back into the fold?

    As for the database - odds on for a huge waste of money once again - except that the funds may dry up sooner than they imagine.

    There are some around asuggesting that the existing financial problems and the solus national responses outside the EUSSR umbrella might lead to the end of the EU.

    Imagine that. Our sheeplike politicians might have to start learning how to make their own decisions.That would be a first for most of them, maybe all of them.

    We live in interesting times.
