Another Day In Stasi Land



Yesterday we had the trainspotter who was treated like a member of the Baader Meinhoff Red Army Faction

Now we have Nick Witham being visited by Special Branch, Bomb Disposal and Norfolk Constabulary, in rural Wroxham.

Nick is a Phd student at the UEA.

Just Google 'Police treated me like a terrorist' and see how many stories you get. You are being watched, we are all being watched, but relax it is for 'public safety' !!

Tried Googling 'Police treated me like a terrorist' - depressing really. It appears that the police are not only bullying & abusive but also blazingly incompetent - so I wouldn't hold out much hope of them saving anyone from real terrorists.
Following links I read an article in the Brighton local paper about the upcoming Labour Conference there. Reading the comments it seems like Labour are as popular in Brighton as they are in most other parts of the UK:

It all seems to fit with the sub plot of "flooding" TV with "real life" police action documentaries.
Be Warned. You are being watch from a car near you.

I don't think I've ever seen a newspaper comments section where 100% are in agreement! However there are still many places where Nu Liebor get welcomed with open arms. If they chose to hold it in somewhere like Liverpool, with millions of benefit claimants, it probably wouldn't need a fraction of the security!

I like to Google "How to put a mercury tilt switch under a police vehicle."

Well the next time I want to make a bomb I'll not make the mistake of ordering both chemicals from the same provider, oh no!

I'll just go to a garden centre and a petrol station for the main bits, then a photographic shop and Boots for the initiator.

What fuckwittery by our fine boys in blue!

And don't forget 'Hairdresser Watch'...

>I had nothing to hide from them and so I invited them in and showed them the shed.

Well, I guess he learned his lesson. Next time, tell them to fuck off and get a warrant, and in the meantime, call the press and an ambulance chaser lawyer.

>we had to pretend that it was just a game

And that's not a half bad idea. Laugh in their faces, because in 24 hours or so you'll be free, but they'll still be pathetic box ticking bureaucratic automatons.

1. They don't need a warrant (these can be obtained retrospectively).
2. You won't be free, it is a police state. New Scotland Yard delenda est.

The moral of the story is.........

If you want to retain your DNA, buy chemicals from different companies.

Re 'Hairdresser watch' I thought the point of a survey was that you could refuse to take part? Obviously not when it's the 'Cunts in Blue' carrying out the survey. I do hope most of the hairdressers lied.

Errr... under which statute, and on what grounds?

"Re 'Hairdresser watch' I thought the point of a survey was that you could refuse to take part?"

Some focus group no doubt decided that 'survey' sounded better than 'State sweep of...'

It's for the same reason that HMRC refers to taxpayers as 'customers'. Yeah, if I didn't like your service, I could submit my VAT return to DEFRA instead, could I? No?

Well, some 'customer' then...

Roj all they need is a tame magistrate. It has been done.
