Nanny Spies On You 24/7
It would seem that collaboration between the police and local councils, when it comes to snooping, spying and reporting on private matters has now become ingrained in this country.
Mary Cooke, who by happenstance is pregnant, made the mistake of inviting a member of Nanny's police into her home in Newcastle-under-Lyme after dialling 999 to report a speeding car which nearly hit her.
However, the policewoman observed the fact that some of the wallpaper was missing in Mrs Cooke's home.
Can you guess what happened next loyal readers?
Yes, that's right, the police reported Mrs Cooke to Staffordshire County Council's children's services department.
Several days later a letter dropped on the mat from Staffordshire County Council, the council were fearful over the well being of Mrs Cooke's unborn child.
Now maybe this might be fair enough, if the house was falling apart and there were enormous damp patches on the walls etc.
However, may I inject a small factoid into this?
Mrs Cooke and her husband were in the process of redecorating, hence the lack of wallpaper in certain areas etc!
Staffordshire Police said:
"Our police officers aim to act in the best interests of everyone they come into contact with.
Their role involves liaising with colleagues from partner agencies on a regular basis and can include making sure people get any extra help and support they might need.
We would not comment on individual cases and would neither confirm or deny whether a referral to another agency has been made."
The police are not meant to act as spies for the local council.
How much other "information" held by the police on people is touted around state agencies in this manner?
By acting as spies and enforcers (see yesterday's article about the Gestapo dawn raid in Cambridge) for local councils the police undermine their credibility, political independence and tarnish their reputation.
Oh, and by the way, we are now living in a police state!
