Big Brother is in Trouble!


Things are looking bad for the government’s Big Brother agenda! The House of Lords has voted decisively to reject the proposed increase of the internment period from 28 to 42 days. If this law had passed it would have meant that the police would have been able to arrest you and hold you without charge for 6 weeks! They could have done that to anybody and would not have needed to give any reason at all! See:

This same week BALPA, the British Airline Pilots Association and several other trade unions of air travel workers are taking action to prevent their members being used as “guinea pigs” for the National Identity Card scheme: . As I say in the linked background article above, the government is picking off one section of society at a time to introduce the ID card system by stealth, but if we get wise to them, it won’t work.

Gordon Brown immediately struck back with a speech about the dangers of terrorism. It concerns me that if their Big Brother agenda really isn’t working and the people are determined to refuse it, the government might resort to staging another “terrorist atrocity” to ram the message home. If such an event occurs we must keep our heads and remain focused; don’t forget that it will be in all likelihood, like 9/11 and 7/7 certainly were, a black-budget military operation designed to look like a terrorist attack.
