The Human Genetics Commission has suggested that there should be a harmonisation of approach towards the retention of people’s DNA on a central database. Currently, in Scotland, innocent people’s DNA records are removed from the database and the Commission favours that that rule be adopted also in England and Wales.
The annual report from the Information Commissioner’s Office has commented that any moves by government to construct a central database of all telephone and Internet communications should only come after the fullest possible debate with the public. The proposal constitutes excessive surveillance in the Commissioner’s view and is a ‘step too far for the British way of life’.
Singer/songwriter, James Neilson Graham has just released a single lamenting Britain’s loss of liberty and privacy. The song, ‘Oh What a Liberty’ takes a satirical approach to the issues of CCTV and ID cards.
Last Wednesday Britain unveiled stricter visa rules which will require students from India and other non-European countries to provide their fingerprints and proof that they have enough money to support themselves while in Britain.
More ID checks are on the way for residents of Northern Ireland who wish to travel to other parts of the UK.
Air passengers flying from UK airports will face compulsory fingerprinting from next year. This will involve fingerprinting both at the security and departure gates. The Home Office then plans to introduce the same measures at all seaports and Channel Tunnel rail links. The usual excuse is given; to enable the police and security services to compare the fingerprints with those of wanted criminals and terrorists, thus we must all be implicated. The use of fingerprinting is said to allow the mixing of both domestic and foreign passengers in airside departure lounges and shopping malls. As well as being fingerprinted and photographed like criminals, the retail chains in the airside shopping malls will then benefit commercially by enticing domestic as well as international passengers to their stores, including the BAA-owned duty-free shops.
Wi-fi provider blocks out political websites in London
While the mainstream news media crow loudly about censorship in China and about the severe restrictions that Chinese surfers face with many international free-speech websites blocked, it comes with some predictability that similar restrictions are now beginning to appear in Britain.
The unbridled Internet has been a tremendous source of alternative, uncensored news, a means to find out what is really going on in the world without being kept in the dark with the politicised, sanitised and propagandised version of events we get from the proprietory sources where strict editorial control is exercised from above.
Paul Joseph Watson of infowars.com was startled and dismayed to find that while using the wi-fi facilities in St Pancras station in London, he was unable to get onto his own websites or indeed those of almost every non-mainstream news media source. This wasn’t a technical malfunction, this was deliberate censorship aka China!
What is happening in the St Pancras and neighbouring Kings Cross station areas is going to be coming to your home via your Internet provider before very long.
It is the duty of every citizen that believes in an open, fair and just society, where one is entitled to hear political views of every hue in order to obtain a fair and balanced picture of world events, to complain bitterly to the Home Office.
Information posted on the infowars website is based solely on fact, deriving its information from all manner of news sources, both mainstream and independent and from official government documents, FOIA material, reliable insiders, congressmen and women, scientists, historians, economists etc etc - amassing a vast resource of in-depth research material that is vital to any student of geopolitical affairs; information that should be the right of any and every citizen as his or her resource - among others - to help construct in their minds a truer picture of the world in which we live. To deny us this right is utterly despicable. What right have the media moguls and those ‘Illuminati’ in whose hands they operate, to dictate to us what we should or shouldn’t know. As a free spirit, human being and inhabitant of this planet, I have as every much right to know what they know and to have the ability and opportunity to pass on my political opinions based on such information for others to consider or reject as they see fit.
To deny us access to these vital forums, the British, Chinese and those governments of an ever-growing number of other countries around the world are re-enacting a mission in the same evil spirit as Goebbels' burning of the books in Nazi Germany when the works of such luminaries as Albert Einstein, Sigmund Freud, André Gide, Franz Kafka, Thomas Mann, Marcel Proust, Emile Zola and HD Wells were deemed unacceptable to the state and the German people and therefore confined to ashes.
Let not history repeat itself!
