Free yourself from the Database

I thoroughly recoomend you all opt out of the NHS Summary Care Record Database.

You can download the document here. Hand it in at your GP. Then watch this film and you'll know why....


David Bond has nothing to hide… but does he really have nothing to fear?

David Bond lives in one of the most intrusive surveillance states in the world. He decides to find out how much private companies and the government know about him by putting himself under surveillance and attempting to disappear – a decision that changes his life forever. Leaving his pregnant wife and young child behind, he is tracked across the database state on a chilling journey that forces him to contemplate the meaning of privacy – and the loss of it.

Once the bastion of freedom and civil liberties, the UK is now one of the most advanced surveillance societies in the world - ranked third after Russia and China. The average UK adult is now registered on over 700 databases and is caught daily on one of the 4 million CCTV cameras located on nearly every street corner in the country. Increasingly monitored, citizens are being turned into suspects. But if you’ve got nothing to hide, surely there’s nothing to fear?

When David Bond receives a letter informing him that his daughter Ivy is among 25 million residents whose details have been lost by the government’s Child Benefit Office, he begins a journey that will see him hounded across Europe.

David soon discovers some alarming truths about what the government and private companies already know about ordinary citizens. He meets people who have been caught in the crossfire of the database state and have had their lives shattered.

As his concern grows, he makes a life-changing decision. He will leave his pregnant wife and child behind and put himself under surveillance for thirty days. The UK’s top Private Investigators are hired to discover everything they can about him and his family – and track David down as he attempts to vanish. Is it still possible to live a private, anonymous life in the UK? Or do the state and private companies already know too much about ordinary people?

Forced to contemplate the meaning of privacy – and the loss of it, David’s disturbing journey leaves him with no doubt that although he has nothing to hide, he certainly has something to fear…

We have become East Germany

Great vid there. Where did you get it?

They know who, and where, you are. I think you know that.

You can be a nuisance, as long as you don't go over the fine line. I haven't found the line yet.

I suspect it isn't far away. I'll tell you if I find it before you do. Please do the same for me.

Twisted Root said...

I've read the opt out form and it should br pointed out that the bit where it says 'What if I choose not to have and SDC record' looks an awful lot like a legal disclaimer relieving them of any responsibility for mistakes in treatment. May I suggest that if you sign this that you insert something to the effect that you reserve all pre-existing rights and will hold the NHS and its employees to their full corporate and personal liability for any errors in treatment?

Film is screened on More4 4th May 2010 and is showing at Picturehouse Cinemas from 29th April 2010.

Uncle Marvo said...

Says it's on iTunes store.

I told you that you shouldn't believe everything you read.

Spartan said...

One should have no credit cards, bank accounts, cars or properties in your name and work has to be done for cash only to have a good chance of disappearing off the radar. Phones should be pay-as-you go sims (cost 50p) from places like Asda. These should be changed often.

Internet access should only be hotspots or peoples home wireless where they have no security enabled (walked down a street once and it's surprising how many have no security enabled. Oh and change the id of your notebook frequently.

Do all this and it is very hard to find you ... if at all. Get over to EU and then it is even harder to trace you.

Am interested to see this film just to see how he attempted it.

Uncle Marvo said...

Good stuff Spartan.

You missed the one about "don't live anywhere" though. Minor detail. And "never again contact any of your family", bits and pieces like that.

That's why I prefer the "don't overstep the mark" scenario.

Until the time comes, then it will be too late.

Mind you, I'm not the Messiah either. But I am a very naughty boy, and I'm quite proud of that.

Uncle Marvo said...

Spartan - I take it back - "no properties".

But family. Kids.

Can't do that.

Catflap said...

All this ID and CRB bollocks is purely so the authorities can 'Move Forward' with thier Liberal,lefty shit agenda.
Bitain is a fucking island with only 3 ways in or out.
Sea,air and fucking tunnel.
No government can say allowing mass immigration wasn't fucking deliberate.
CRB checks also allow the prison reform tossers to release perverts onto the street.
To enable, perverts,thieves,rapists robbers,Aids ridden Islamic terrorists and piss taking gypo's the freedom they don't deserve your freedom has been curtailed.

Fausty said...

I took mine to my doctor's surgery, but could get no receipt for it. I.e., no proof that my records would not be on the database - and no guarantee, either.

How would I know if they were uploaded to the spine, anyway?

I'm certain that the government wants alternative medicine bods to register for database purposes - not for reasons of safety.

Spartan, the Spanish now have to register their pay-as-you-go mobiles with the government. Won't be long before the requirement surfaces here.

They are also reducing, bit by bit, the amount of cash you can withdraw from your bank account. Surely, heading for a cashless society.

In the US, people have been arrested for bartering at markets.

Everything is under attack that cannot be traced and taxed.

I can't recall where I read it, but hotspots are becoming illegal - I'll check and revert.

Uncle Marvo said...


I have the answer to the hotspot thing - but I'm buggered if I'm posting it on here.

I will tell in person. Perhaps I'll bump into that masked man in late March somewhere. He can pass it on.

"peoples home wireless where they have no security enabled (walked down a street once and it's surprising how many have no security enabled)"

About 3 years ago I discovered a handy little programme called "NetStumbler" (Google it, it's freeware) which is a wireless scanning and logging utility. At that time 25% of all the WiFi networks I logged were un-encrypted. The number has since fallen as the public are becoming aware of the risks, and ISP's are no longer sending out "free" routers unsecured.

Spartan said...

Uncle Marvo ... yes it's a big step and you have to think seriously about doing it. Unless you are a wanted criminal for serious offences staying in touch with your family and seeing them is no problem.

This of course has to be when your children have grown up and fled the nest. Staying off the radar should be to enhance your life ... not make it worse.

Accommodation is pretty easy to organise as you just share and pay your way but your name is nowhere on the property ... utility bills etc.

Hotspots to become illegal? ... not heard of this. Anyway that still leaves peoples personal wireless accessable and not to forget lnternet Cafes.

Pay-as-you-go sims have to be registered in Spain? ... still leaves many countries that don't and they work in all of EU.

One thing l would do if l was changing my sim quite frequently is give the old one away with some credit on it. :)

Uncle Marvo said...

Apropos nothing very much, I accidentally clicked on the OH profile picture, and I have been pissing myself ever since.

There are some gems in there, including the word "norks" which I hadn't heard, and great websites such as J G B isacunt.

I have never been able to understand this "nothing to hide, nothing to fear" baloney. It implies that privacy is of no importance, that it isn't a basic human need.
Would people who employ this term like the authorities to make unnanounced visits to their homes just to have a good rummage round. Would they like every piece of snail mail to be opened and photocopied (thats what happens with all our electronic communications).

The only time our elected representatives have been concerned about privacy is when the expenses scandal started to break and they fought tooth and nail to have the expenses FOI request rejected. So they do care about privacy quite a lot. Their own!!

Uncle Marvo said...


"unless you are a wanted criminal for serious offences"

'R' us.

I don't think what I did was bad, but they do. I thought it was quite funny, and I thought they deserved it. Fuck, it was less than Fred Goodwin's pension.


Spartan said...

Uncle Marvo ... you can attack your fellow citizens, rob houses, mug people etc etc and all you'll get is a slap.

God forbid that you take money off our self-appointed 'masters' or even dare to say 'No' to them. This tends to upset them and they then retaliate as viciously and nastily as they can.

Fuck 'em!

Uncle Marvo said...


Good Lord!

How on earth did you guess?

Newgates Knocker said...

Some adults may be able to disappear, but our children are now logged on so many databases the state has probably got them for good. They are becoming so used to the "present ID to have a piss" lifstyle that they don't question it. I told my GP several years ago to keep my family off the database. But, I only have her word that she didn't add us. And whose word of honour, in authority is worth a spit bubble these days!

Anonymous said...

have you noticed how the practice signature is in a box of it's own!

Rog said...

Printed off, filled in and will deliver to my GP shortly.

BTW, you should be wary of nice friendly Google - compiling as much info on you as they possibly can...

A short, fanciful story here:

You may wish to consider using Scroogle as your main search engine.

...or perhaps use the "googlesharing" add-on for Firefox.

We'll be fucked good and proper when they bring in the cashless society.
It will reduce crime,prostitution,smuggling,drugs terrorism,etc they'll claim.
no it won't. it will have us where they want us

Fausty said...

Uncle Marvo, would you be willing to mail me via hushmail?

Spartan, I love the SIM idea!

I can't find the original page on hotspots being illegal (not yet in the UK), but XLN Telecom say's the industry's concerned about hotspots being shut off in the UK.

Anony said...

Do what i did and confuse the hell out of them, join as many political parties as you can and change your colour and religion each time on the census forms, add in make believe middle names here and there.

Make it a mindfuck for them.

Once currency and coinage is made illegal and everything forced to be cashless, the new world currency wheeled in after crashing all the national currencies in order to get us to that point of necessity, when the advertising demonstrates how wonderfully free life can be not having to mess with even carrying plastic cards but by having one painfully embedded under your skin to keep track of your transactions and the next generation is as happy to have it done to their children within the first minute of their leaving the womb will be the grand communist one-world utopia that we are being sold daily will become the total nightmare and end of all freedom, period - as much as the feudal era - to last for thousands of years. Oh yes, I agree with the state, wouldn't want to say anything against it, I hate those filthy smokers as much as the next person, being a good citizen and well acquainted with my duties you see.

I reckon there are not enough spys to keep tabs on everyone. I think the idea is that if you do cause them problems then they can look out for you. These guys lose perverts and cannot keep track of missing kids. They are not as sophisticated as you think.

The spanish had bombs detonated by mobile. Its understandable they are keen on knowing who has what sim. But they are only likely to be interested if you detonate a bomb.

If you are a generally law abiding citizen, not wanting to blow anyone else up, its unlikely knacker is coming to kick your door down.

Never assume they are competent incidentally. Look at your daily dealings with all manner of people. Mostly they are jobsworths and fuckwits. They spell your name wrong on a ticket, they deliver your stuff to the wrong place, they take out the wrong kidney, they put diesel in your petrol tank. They can fuck you up by incompetence, but they are only out to get you really if you are a threat.

Fucksake, OH is still at liberty. I rest my case.

East germany? It's much worse than that! said...

Nothing to hide?

Yeah that's what Hitler told a certain group as he tracked and traced them!

You will also find that the amount of survailence now means the goverment(NWO) has complete control over everything.

If they want to destroy political opposision to the NWO they simply outlaw almost everything and spy on the opposition looking for a issue to arise that will conmpromise the victim.

This is how the spy network has always opperated but now it is 1,000 time worse.

It means their is no political freedom and it will mean ever greater creep until it goes nuts, because no state will willingly let go of the advantages it brings.

This is one method of how the NWO controlled security services keep tabs on our MPs and only put the most compromised in power only to serve as their puppet.

In short it is not only east germany but east germany on steroids.

It willl end with mass genocide, the most likely victims are us.

NOthing to hide is bullshit in a creeping totalitarian state where everything is outlawed.

corporate espeionage and the goverment said...

The corporate goverment - the NWO and their royal backers also have the perfect means of industrial espionage.

No bussiness can escape their grip all the while the control goverment buy black mail bribaery and currency collaspe - debt.

Fausty said...

Off-topic, but you might enjoy this one, Holby. It's a freeman represented in a magistrate's court, represented by his lay advisor.

I believe someone blogged about it before, but the above is video footage of the event. It's poor sound quality, but hilarious, nonetheless!

Dave backs political oppression!

welcome to east Germany! only state approved parties and candidates are allowed.

"Any good headteacher would not have a member of the BNP within a hundred miles of a school. They should be able to fire someone for that reason."

Oh and the UAF extreme left wing terrorists back the statement!

unite against fascism - most ironic!

woman on a raft said...

A note about the opt-out. Look at the wording - they still want to create the record but "withold clinical information".

This is, of course, bollocks, as it amounts to a national ID register to which DNA can be added at any time.

Frighten them. Tell them that it will come in very handy when we get a proper Fascist government.

I wish I could afford to go private OH like you, sadly I have been suffering badly from wankers wrist for many years. The NHS in Belfast have lost my X-rays. I demanded to see a consultant in order to make an official complaint. A nurse told me to fuck off. This caused me to run off sobbing and very very angry inside.

In 1933, when Hitler decreed that all Jews were required to stitch yellow 'Js' into their clothing, the Jewish Council of Germany issued a statement saying "we've done nothing wrong, what could we possibly have to fear?".

And that's such a good historical fact, it deserves to be posted twice!
