Those of you who are still in denial about the state monitoring your every move may care to read this odious tale.
A mother, who wishes to remain anonymous, was shopping with her two young kids in the Co-op in Woolston, Southampton.
The kids had been acting up for some time, and she gave them a verbal warning that she would smack them if they didn't behave. The warning sufficed, and the kids behaved.
Unbeknown to the mother, an off duty policeman overheard her and followed her home.
Six weeks later two officers came to her home and questioned her about the alleged incident. She then received a letter from Southampton council telling her that her actions had been "put on record" for at least the next 14 years.
Now, whilst it may be "reasonable" for the police to follow up on something that they felt was a possible criminal offence, here's why this is so odious:
1 The police claim to be concerned about the possible actions of the mother, and the safety of the children. Why did they take 6 weeks to follow this up? Surely if they really believed that she was such a threat to the kids, they should have stormed her house on the day of the incident?
2 No court case has taken place and the mother has not been convicted, or even charged with a crime. Why did the police report this non crime to the state (Southampton council)?
3 Why does the council feel that it has a right to interfere in a non criminal domestic matter?
4 Why is there a permanent record now on the council's files about this non crime?
Councils have gone way beyond the role that they should have in society (ie that of collecting refuse and other local logistical matters). They must be "put back in their box", and powers that they have awarded themselves removed from them.
The state has become the enemy of the people.
Southampton is a Tory council.
