State of the Nation


Ballot Boxes are interfered with

Voting registers go missing

The Police can kill innocent people and get away with it

You can be put in prison for 42 days on pure suspicion

You can be put in prison indefinitely on the word of a politician

The State can torture people

Your children are monitored at School by Political Officers

Their behaviour is logged on a State database for their entire lives

Your innocent fingerprints, iris scans and biometrics are held by the State

You do not have the right to remain silent

You are watched on 4 million CCTV cameras

You may not photograph the Police


The media is controlled by the State

You do not have the right to protest peacefully

Curfews exist for entire communities

Your travel movements are logged and monitored

Who you vote for is logged and monitored

Your shopping habits are studied and logged by the State

Your emails and telephone conversations are recorded by the State

Your passport can be withdrawn at the whim of the State

Government agencies can use lie detector tests on you.


Name the country.

Why, could it be the UK? I believe so.

Fuck sake, I'm beginning to really despise this place.

It aint all bad OH, Big Brother will be back on the telly soon and Britain's Got Talent is very entertaining...

Agree with you 100%.

But Big Brother wants to make life better for us. He can only care for us if he watches us all the time and if he knows what we may be thinking.

On today's Daily Politics

On the show today:

Westminster has returned, although after this Easter break you'd be forgiven if you thought it had never gone away.

On today's Daily Politics we'll be playing a bit of catch-up on Smeargate, the Damien Green affair, and Jacqui Smith's issues.

Labour's had a pretty rough time of late, so we'll be looking at the state of the party.
We'll be looking at the police tactics at the G20 summit. And it's budget week, so we will of course be looking forward to Wednesday's "crisis budget".

Throughout the programme we'll be talking to former Conservative Chancellor Norman Lamont and ex-Downing Street adviser Matthew Taylor will also be on.

Guido Fawkes, aka Paul Staines, who bought down Gordon Brown's right hand man, Damien MacBride will also be in the studio.Live Chat Guido and the Daily Politics here in 50 minutes: Guido on the Daily Politics LIVE CHAT

Oi! There is only a very superficial resemblance between Brad Pitt's bank balance and my own.

Oh I wonder what Brillo will be like this time around!!!

And no Mr Draper - how sad, never mind :)

Swiss Bob said...

Plato, got a little overexcited reading the email from the Daily Politics, for a moment I thought McBride was on with him, shame.

40 minutes to go.

I thought this 42 days incarceration shit had been given the heave ho. Habeas corpus should be 24 hrs.

Reimer said...

What were crime levels like in the old DDR?

We are getting the worst of both worlds.

Look on the bright side though, we could finish second or third in the medals table at the Olympics!

Pugwash said...

Eveyone knows ZanuLab are finished, Im just wondering how long after the GE do we start making comment about ZanuCon... not long I bet

you missed political oppression - a key issue! said...

Political oppresion -

Members of democratic opposition parties (BNP) refused work or sacked on account of their politics.

Even though this is a fundermental breech of their human rights and goes against the very core of democracy.

Fascist state!

I agree with 'you missed...' 12:02
The BNP is recognised as a legitimate political Party so why cannot people (anyone) belong to it if they so wish? There would be a right outcry if the Torys got in next time round & said that Labour Party members were banned from the police, fire-brigade etc.
People may not agree with some of the aims of the BNP but agreement or non-agreement should be a personal decision & should not impact on a person's employment. Let me add that I am not a member of any political party so I have no personal act to grind.

No, Chalcedon, 42 days is what it is. What got given the heave-ho (for now) was extending it to 90 days.

Is it that region of the United States of Europe formally known as the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland?

While our polticians have been playing with themselves the civil service has pushed through legislation via a circular route - recommend it to the Euro Parliament, get it passed and we adopt it by default. The internet snooping one was done like this. Politicians on the continent frequently take a more discerning approach to the EU and will rightly put their national interest first.

The UK doesn't because Parliament has been AWOL for a decade.

fatcha!

On the same lines....

Which organisation is this?

R Nosgrove said...

United States of Europe?

More like EUSSR!

The Iron curtain is comming down and this time we are on the inside.

Sir Henry Morgan said...

And what's wrong with all that other than the fact that it all adds up to?:

Britain - fkn fkrs fkn fkd.
British - fkn fkrsr fkn fkd

I just might blatantly half-inch that post later. I'll link if I do.

Labour supporting communists demand political oppression for opponants said...

Britain's largest union UNISON is calling for for nurses, midwives and health visitors who join the BNP to be sacked.

Present rules under the Nursing and Midwifery Council code currently state that NHS workers must under no circumstances appear to discriminate against patients in their care.

There is no mention of a restriction on staff joining any political parties. Common sense would suggest that all professional staff would leave their politics at the door, and only a lack of professionalism should warrant a dismissal.

~~~Post German Unification~~~

WestGerman: 'We are now all one people'

EastGerman: 'So are we!'

Anonymous said...

Not quite correct:-

"You are watched on 4 million CCTV cameras"

Not when you're being beaten up at a G20 protest.

Dazed and Confused said...

We live in East Germany?

I wish we fucking did, it would be a huge improvement on New Labours Britain.

it's either banned or compulsory said...

And 60 or more state agencies can force entry into your home without a warrant.

i was recently subjected to similar surveillance measures by the mother and brothers of the woman whom i was dating. needless to say i've now ended the relationship and am in the preliminary stages of making a formal complaint to the police. unfortunately, i don't expect to get much satisfaction, as the family members themselves have close connections with the security services - but i'll proceed anyhow and give the stasi as much paperwork as possible. who do these fucking people think they are?

Answer= The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland soon to be 12 regions of the European Union
