Councils in the UK spy on 1,000+ people a day
The Daily Torygraph does its stuff with the headline subject here. I’m sure that all converted libertarians to whom we preach on this blog will have seen it and foamed at the mouth already.
The DT was kind enough to post an idle musing of mine, early this morning, on the process of logic which causes a real person, a British one probably, to actively seek to take up a job working for a council … doing what? Spying on others, that’s what; to their potential harm or distress, and to the gain of the spy or council. Here’s what a Tory council did about a family trying to get their 3-year-old daughter a better school:
Click on it to get the entire thing. It’s disgusting. It’s not “like” East Germany, or “like” North Korea – it IS those places. Now, here. “Target vehicle” – the f***ING bastards are talking about their OWN PEOPLE here.
“Dog poo” is quoted. I have already inveighed against dog poo here, and the other sort of socialist-trained-person wot causes a pooch to poop outside one’s property and then go away. That’s not the point today; it’s about why a sentient human being, presumably brought up in a still-partly-functioning civil society like the UK, would really really want to apply for such jobs?
Or is it too late, and have we gone too far down the road towards a Third-Reich-style-polity? Daniel Goldhagen’s book, “Hitler’s Willing Executioners“, is illuminating. I found myself teaching with it not long ago, re Kristallnacht.
My point today is that civil society has been so unravelled and degraded by the anti-English, anti-liberal, fascist clique whom we let into power while half-asleep, that we tactly concur in state-corporate attempts to stamp out certain kinds of behaviour that we think we ought to be seen to publicly deplore….even if they are substantively harmless, and the natural result of the very Laws that brought them into being. Such as
“fly-tipping” ….. the result of state refusal to continue dealing with certain kinds of “waste” (or indeed any for that matter) without huge charges and increased bureaucracy;
“trying to get your child into a better school” ….. the result of State “education” policies – simple as that!
“trying to do up your house” ….. 30 years ago the Bulgarians all decided to let their houses go to rack and ruin, because of new laws to allow intrusion by soviets to see if your place was a bit “nicer” than the other hovels, and ought to be taxed more.
Miserable toads, and bastards. F*** them: there, I’ve done it. I never thought I would swear on this blog, but I have. Like Lucy Pinder finally got round, a while ago, to removing her bra.
How can we be sharing the same nation, breathing possibly the same air, as these PEOPLE? These goons, sneaks, these grasses, these bullies who are even too cowardly to come out and bully properly?
