Default Re: To My UK Friends

Hi I am from Glasgow Scotland and I moved to Canada with my family in 2007
Here is a little nugget of pure George Orwell Big Brother is watching you from the UK.

My brother works for a major UK tabloid and my wife was an inspector with strathclyde police department.

There is motorway just outside Glasgow called the M8 and the powers that be decided that they would test registration recognition cameras in the cats eyes that divide the lanes on the highway (I think it was a three mile stretch and it was 2005/2006 they where installed)

Now the only way the general public found out about this is when one of the work crew that installed them called my brothers paper and asked them if they had any idea why there was small cameras being put in the M8 motorway. So the cat was out of the bag and the local authorities had to admit it when the where asked about it publically. After a year the test was proclaimed a resounding success and the authorities in the UK can now look forward to a huge increase in revenue from speeding fines.

Now to my wife just be fore she left her job as a police officer in November 2006 she was at a meeting of top ranking Scottish police officers in Glasgow. At that meeting they were told that the Government had just given the go ahead for every CCTV camera in the UK that had the capability to be networked or connected to a land line or fiber optic to be tied into a central server that the police and secret service had access to.

Now it is probably still a few years away but the technology exists to do all this now (I am an engineer and I work in the communication field) .Think about the implications of this you will not be able to drive or walk any where without some agency knowing where you are and when you where there .The CCTV cameras are using face recognition software and have been for the last five years in all of the UKs major cities.

So basically you will never be able to speed again because the registration recognition software will be able to time you from point A to point B and work out that your journey should have taken you 25 minuets not 15 and you wont be able to hide from the ticket collector because your face will flash up the minuet you walk in front of a camera.

Of course all this wonderfully expensive hardware and software will only ever be used in the event of a crime or a terrorist act or so my wife and a hundred other police officers where told at that meeting.

Freedom is the basic right of every one on this planet
Freedom of speech is the right of every one
Freedom to practice ones beliefs is the right of every one
Freedom to be in individual and have ones own thoughts is the right of every one
Freedom is about having and making ones own choices
So why do the Politicians and the Holy men of this world feel the need to tell us what to believe in, what to think, what to say, what is best for us and what choices we make?
YOU ARE AN INDIVIDUAL START MAKING YOUR OWN CHOICES
YOU START THINKING FOR YOURSELF
YOU BELIVE IN WHAT YOU WANT TO BELIVE IN
YOU START ASKING QUESTIONS OF YOUR HOLY MAN AND POLITICIN
MAKE 2010 A MORE ENLIGHTEND AND LESS SUBSERVIENT YEAR FOR YOU
