STATEBOOK … A new personal data-sharing resource for (no … about) the busy, compliant New British citizen


David Davis

I am indebted to The Blog Of Kev for this highly humorous and chilling reminder about the ongoing covert presence of our masters and their datamining apparatchiks.

There is really nothing more to add. Except to the list of “agencies” that can get it. If you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear (of course…)

The problem of bureaucrats and data has been addressed by us frequently. if it  _can_  be collected, then they  _will_  do it, because they  _must_ , since if they do not,  _lessons_  may have to be  _learned_ , later. In the meantime, they will use it.

    ACPO — The Real Crony-Capitalist Authoritarian Horror Story:

    http://leejohnbarnes.blogspot.com/2009/02/acpo-real-mafia.html

    Insofar as even ten percent of what Lee John Barnes says is true and proveable (and much more than that much IS true and proveable, we have — ( as yourself, Sean, I, Stella Rimington and innumerable journalists, civil and human rights activists, and even numerous more decent police officers now say, opposed only by the oligarchs and their apparatchiks (and –alas — a few oddball Ersatz-“Right-Libertarians” who somehow see ACPO as a triumph of “privatization” of omnipresent Social Control) ) — a fully fledged NKVD- or Gestapo-in-embryo National Police State, exempt from all democratic control and public oversight (and organized on exactly similar lines and structures and directing mentalities).

    ACPO is strongly reminiscent of J. Edgar Hoover’s ghastly FBI; or any number of similar power-grabbing would-be oligarchs. It has to go, and it will go. Its Central computer Databases will by now have been ransacked by every major foreign intelligence service using infiltration and Signals Intelligence techniques.

    This of course grossly damages the direct national security interests of Her Majesty’s Government of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

    And it is EXACTLY what any intelligent person should expect when private organizations are allowed to arrogate to themselves the functions properly reserved to democratically-elected Parliaments, and the statutorily provided supervision, ovrsight and regulation which is appropriate to the carrying-out of such functions…

    Funnily enough (!) I’ve just received a “Notice of Intended Prosecution” from Safecam, County Hall, Taunton TA1 4DY, http://www.safecam.org.uk (NOTE: NOT a .pnn. police website…) which is purportedly directed by the Chief Constable of Avon and Somerset Constabulary, which has no powers to prosecute _anyone_, that function being the sole prerogative of the Crown Prosecution Service. For such powers to be threatened with abuse by a Chief of Police on behalf of a revenue-seeking “private” Crony-Capitalist outfit is truly remarkable.

    What is more, the “photographs” pirport to show a Volvo 480 a little like mine “violating” a red light, according to a Safecam robot camera… All Volvos have the sidelights come on automatically whenever the car is being driven, yet the car in the “colour photographs” has no lights on at all, apart from a tutn indicator at one poinr which is the same red colour as the traffic lights show. Oddly, my Volvo 480 has turn indicators which are bright light orange, not any kind of red..

    Curiouser and curiouser…

    [ FX: : “Follow the white rabbit…” ]

    This one will run and run…

    Be prepared to kiss ACPO “Goodbye!”…
