Nothing to hide....Everything to fear


I see Mark Thomas is now a known "domestic extremist".

He hasn't done anything illegal and has no criminal record. Yet he finds himself on the database of "domestic extremists" and is monitored by special Police units dedicated to "watching" and photographing people who may become a threat because they choose to protest in this country.

He says

No police, secret or otherwise, should operate without proper accountability. So how are these three units accountable? Who has access to the databases? How long does information remain in the system? What effect could it have on travel and future employment of those targeted? How closely do these units work with corporate private investigators, and does the flow of information go both ways? Do the police target strikers?

A police spokesman has said that anyone who finds themselves on a database "should not worry at all". When a spokesman for the three secret units will not disclose a breakdown of their budgets, and two of the three will not even name who heads their operations (even MI6 gave us an initial, for God's sake), then the words "should not worry at all" are meaningless. Indeed, when the police admit that someone could end up on a secret police database merely for attending a demonstration, it is exactly the time to worry.



This has to stop.

OH, I hope to God that you give them something to worry about on your walk. It saddens me that I cannot make it to walk with you.
Have a think, there must be something that you could put in your barrel that might cause them concern, How about nipping down to B&Q for a bag of fertiliser, chuck a mobile in as well. Neither illegal, nothing to delay you, they will take note, it will be on TV and the press, the message will be, this time is the very last warning.

The snooper's census: 2011 survey will ask for the name, sex and birth date of all our 'overnight visitors'

To be fair, there's a couple of right scary-looking people there ... and that's just the women!

I think that we all should send them back redacted just like those MPs tried to do with their expenses.

So lots and lots of blacked out blocks and lines for your answers. In fact redact all your replies.

Aren't you falling for the ultra-left's paranoia.
There have always been'collators' of local and national information or 'intelligence' and nothing wrong with that. The steps taken relating to DNA sampling, CCTV coverage etc etc are worrying. There's nothing sinister about the CO11 database at all. Society is full of complete nutters, roayl stalkers, ALF lunatics, BNP fuckwits, Millwall fans, Stop the City anarchists, Greenpeace building scalers and other assorted trouble makers and the police would be rightly criticised if they didn't pay such people attention.

I agree with you about Mark Thomas though
- there's no way he can be called a known domestic extremist. More accurately he's a completely boring lefty twat who abuses the term 'comedian' and is as funny as a fatal raod crash. A complete cunt in fact. My opinion and my right to say so an'all.

Then brace yourself to be used as cannon fodder in wold war three!

Any idea how old those pictures are? I only ask because one of them looks awfully like me - but about 30 years ago.
So that cunt ranting on the Tube has resigned? They shouldn't have let him resign - he should have been sacked. Now no doubt he's busily claiming benefits - oh wait, he can't because he resigned. Hoist by his own petard.
As for the Census - don't fill it in or lie horribly - overnight guest Peter Mandelson.

Odd. That picture looks like the Bolton W/ Bristol C pages from my 1979-80 Panini sticker album.

I believe this is an EU initiative, as per Open Europe's report (out today).

The only way out of this is to get out of the EU.

The cencus did once provide useful data that would inform goivernment policy. We know in this ghastly age that the only purpose of data collection is to provide ammunition with which the state can bludgeon its citizens

I'm reminded on the last verse of that great Baffalo Sprinfiedl song:

"Paranoia strikes deep/
Into your life it will creep/
It starts when you're always afraid/
You step out of line, the man come and take you away/

That lot look like a cross between something out of Mad Max and the Baader Meinhof gang.

Oh dear, Windows seems to have ignored the police instruction " do not copy " and downloaded it onto my hard drive. Will I get in twubble ?

Mark Thomas was campaigning to prevent Thatcher having a state funeral. He said on his website that he was going to throw a party when she dies.

I'd like to punch his teeth down his throat. Smug fucking lefty prick.

Crap said...

And another thing, if was a cop and Mark Thomas described himself as a "comedian" I'd know he was a lying toe rag.

I'd like Thatcher to have a state funeral so that I could piss in her face.

Who said I was a socialist? My dad was a socialist, I'm more of a minarchist/anarchist. Which is why I read blogs like this one.

Archway's lovely this time of year, be my guest.
