Spies 'R Us - 1400 Times a Day

Big Brother
Nanny has turned Britain into a surveillance society, as recently released figures show that public bodies had obtained access to private telephone and e-mail records about 1,400 times a day.

Council, police and other organisations have made more than half a million requests for confidential communications data last year, representing a 44% rise in requests.

Have we all become a nation of criminals?

Or, as is more likely, has Nanny decided that it is "in our own best interests" that she spy on us?

The Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act (RIPA) is being misused by Nanny, against ordinary citizens; instead of against the "suspected terrorists", which we were told it was designed for.

The figures showing this alarming rise in state surveillance were compiled by Sir Paul Kennedy, the Interception of Communications Commissioner.

In 2008 Nanny issued guidelines on the use of the powers, in theory these guidelines should have prevented the misuse of RIPA. However, as the figures show, the guidelines are in effect being ignored.

Just so that the point is clear, one in every 78 adults in the UK has been/is now being watched by the state.

The state is the enemy of the people.

  1. Ken;

    I don't want to say too much as we never know who is watching......I love Nanny and I know she is only doing what she is doing for my own good;-)

  2. Tonk-

    I see nanny is putting CCTV into the homes of some of her more wayward citizens. Once this little experiment 'proves' that everything in a household will run like clockwork if only nanny keeps her eye on it you can bet the old bitch will find more ways to introduce them into homes.

    The question/promotion of CCTV has been all over Sky News this morning. One of Nanny's new generation of senior police officers, which I prefer to call politicians in uniform, stated that he wants to set up a separate force, within the existing force, to deal exclusively with video related evidence. That is a squad that does nothing other than watch/review video output from these cameras and then conducts investigations and prosecutions on that evidence.

    One thing that people appear to have not thought through relating to cctv is this; CCTV does not prevent crime, it can ONLY record crime that has already taken place. To me, this just encourages lazy policing, we need Bobbies on the beat with local ties that know what is going on on the ground, not what we have now where I live; One copper covering an area of twelve square miles that drives through once a month and the rest of the time is tied up with paperwork.


    Yes, that is always favorite mantra; If you have nothing to hide etc.....I have nothing to hide but, I am fed up with constantly having to prove the fact!! I guess you feel the same:-)

    Need we also mention that only one in every 1000 CCTV camera in London helps solve a crime? Shockingly, CCTV only helped catch 8 of 269 suspected robbers.

    So, Nanny, how exactly is the CCTV which we are told is there to protect us and catch offenders? Or are we to believe that the reason that 0.1% of the capital's CCTV cameras helps solve a crime is because so many cameras being pointed at us has reduced crime?

  7. If we are expected to believe that surveillance of the state on people it serves is for innocent purposes there would be no harm if the state was obliged to inform the target if they had been found to be innocent of any wrong doing.

    Perhaps an MP could raise this in Parliament.

    I want cameras trained on my MP 24 hours a day seven days a week. As a loyal and trusted servant of the people he would not object surely? After all he is doubtless carrying out his duties to Queen and Country selflessly and spending every minute of his day working for the 'hard pressed British family' so nothing to hide nothing to fear eh?

    Hear, hear. And I couldn't agree with Tonk more - whatever happened to innocent before proven guilty? Nowadays it seems we have to be completely on our guard, and prepare evidence/alibis JUST IN CASE, as you never know how the 'video surveillance' will be strung together in order to get a successful conviction...
