Surveillance UK (SUK)

Surveillance conducted by British intelligence agency GCHQ does not contravene human rights, a UK tribunal has heard, despite warnings from civil and Internet liberties activists.

Quelle surprise

We have a street artist called Banksy in the UK. This one picture painted near to the almighty GCHQ sums up how safe you are using any form of media to communicate.

banksytelephoneUK preppers and survivalists KNOW that to communicate your plans in any way is a nightmare here in the UK. Nothing is safe.

To that end, imagine my added “surprise” when I found this:-    
(AAP). 9NEWS. One of the UK’s top cops has warned the battle against extremism could push the country towards a police state.


Really! It’s not arrived yet?

There I was just getting used to it being a surveillance society.
The picture? Banksy once again.

    In 1984, my wife and I arrived at Heathrow to depart after our wonderful first visit to England. Not knowing which terminal I should head towards, I pulled out a map in the busy entrance. A uniformed security man walked up to me and asked “Can I help you find something, Mister Marble?”

    “Thanks, yes…I’m trying to find the Lufthansa term—wait a minute…how did you know my name?!”

    He gave a knowing wink and said simply “Oh, we always know who everyone in this building is, sir!”

    1984. No Microsoft Windows. No cell phones. I can’t even imagine the state of the art this year…

    George Orwell was a visionary. And they called it Science “Fiction”.

    They’re just softening the blow to condition everyone to the socialist and police states.

    • Funny you should say that:-
      This today from The (UK) Guardian newspaper.
      Greater Manchester’s Chief constable Sir Peter Fahy warns against ‘drift towards police state’

      The battle against extremism could lead to a “drift towards a police state” in which officers are turned into “thought police”, one of Britain’s most senior chief constables has warned.

      The thought police. Written about by George Orwell 1949 in a book called 1984!

  4. Kinda depressing to realize you’re not paranoid, huh? I mean at least when we thought we could only be paranoid, we had a chance. Now there’s no hope…Love 1984
