A Nation of Snoopers

A Nation of Snoopers
The British Association for Adoption and Fostering (BAAF) claims that thousands of children in the UK may be being unlawfully fostered, and could be at risk of abuse (that does not mean that the children are being abused).

The law requires that the state be informed if a child is looked after by anyone other than a close relative.

BAAF is urging people to report neighbours who are caring for children unrelated to them on a long-term basis.

Whilst their intentions may be good, this is another attempt by the state and quasi organisations of the state to turn us into a nation of snoopers and spies. It used not to be the British way to snoop, "grass" or tell on people.

I well recall my father drumming it into my head when I was a wee lad:

"Never tell tales on others".

That is a lesson that was once the norm. Now Nanny seeks to turn it on its head.

Societies that encourage members of the public to inform on others are dictatorships.

  1. Ken, again you are right; I have noticed a rise in "Grass Lines" and youngsters are taught it is right to tell tales, even on their parents....Britain is becoming an awful place to live....Let's hope the next government either gets us out of the EUSSR or reigns in their power over us.....Can't see it myself....Advice to anyone young enough and able to, leave this country now before it is too late.

    I'm going to employ my own, personal snoopers. I'm going to set them up in the shed with cameras, phone tapping equipment, cameras, direct Home Office line and all the necessary parafinalia. They will work in shifts to cover the full 24/7 rosta. They will have access to all my trees, bushes, garages, outbuildings, rooves, windows, cars and homes. Wherever I go will carry a 24inch multi-screen so that I can see what I am doing all of the time from several vantage points. I'm going to be the best snooper of me that I can be. I'm sure there's a load of money in it for me, generated by me. Then, whenever I want I can lock myself up and throw away the key!

  3. The NSPCC claims that more than 50 children are sexually abused every day in England and Wales. They obtained these figures through Freedom of Information Act requests to police forces for details of recorded offences.

    Whether this total refers to convictions or merely allegations isn't clear. But in any case, I find it hard to believe that the majority of parents are unfit to have or to care for children, or that there are predatory child molesters [mis-named paedophiles] lurking in every street.

    That, however, is what the 'child protection industry' would have us believe. There seems to be a concerted drive to remove children from their families into social work 'care' on the slightest pretext, and I find this very worrying.

  4. Is that a genuine Conservative poster? If not, it ought to be.

  5. "Societies that encourage members of the public to inform on others are dictatorships".

    Ken, you're spot on here, but ask accountants, lawyers, estate agents, insurance salesmen and so forth what they think. Already they are spying on us all, for any proceed of a crime, no matter how small. And they are not being 'encouraged' to do so, they are being made to do so, under the Money Laundering regulations, which most of the public will never have heard about.

    If one of those professionals comes upon, or even 'suspects', as little as one penny (there is no de-minimus) proceeds of crime, they are legally obliged to report the full details, including names and addresses, to the Serious Organised Crimes Office, and if they fail to do so, or tip off the person that a report has been made, they can end up with fines and/or imprisonment. So watch out what you say when you are next being sold insurance, or having your books done.

    1984 is already here!!

    May I add comment to Spiv's post.

    In my work I'm obliged to comply with the Money Laundering Act. I also ask for details of clients' estates, without which information I can't offer advice which is in the clients' best interests. Spiv is right to say that, if I suspected a client of money laundering, I'd be under a legal obligation to report it but, as far as I'm concerned, there are never reasonable grounds for suspicion and I think that it would be impossible to prove otherwise should I be hauled up in court.

  7. It's an awful thing to ask people to do. Not terribly good for community spirit which is in a sorry state as it is!

    Woman, 81, killed in street mugging ignored by passers-by as she called for help

    Perhaps that's the idea. Cohesive communities are dangerous, capable of uprising against Nazi Governments!

    And is the threat of terrorism not being (mis)used in a similar manner, as a pretext to replace many of the freedoms which we used to take for granted and for which our ancestors fought and died, including those enshrined in ancient laws, such as Magna Carta?

    "Woman, 81, killed in street mugging ignored by passers-by as she called for help".

    That's amazing. I'd be interested to know how many people walked by. If I saw an 80 year old woman lying on the ground calling for help I'd see if there was anything I could do even if I thought she was drunk. Here's a general rule people, if an 81 year old woman is lying on the ground in a heap in a public place then 99 times out of 100 there's something very amiss. Hooray for the two women that did help her.

    And if I can happily walk a mile when I'm 81 I'll be a very happy Speenzman!
