    Anti-terrorism laws used to spy on noisy children

    Big Brother is Watching and Listening

    "Councils do a grave disservice to professional policing by using serious surveillance against litterbugs instead of terrorists."

    The RIPA was introduced to help fight terrorism and crime. But a series of extensions, first authorised by David Blunkett in 2003, mean that Britain's 474 councils can use the law to tackle minor misdemeanours.

    Councils are using the Act to tackle dog fouling, the unauthorised sale of pizzas and the abuse of the blue badge scheme for disabled drivers.

    "Local authorities including Bassetlaw, Easington, Bolsover and Darlington have placed houses under video or photographic surveillance to tackle problems such as anti-social behaviour, unauthorised entry into gardens and benefit fraud. Others admitted using council staff to follow residents to determine whether they were working while claiming benefits."

    That's how it always goes no matter where you're from, they push laws through telling all of the sheeple that it's for "this", then once it's passed they go ahead and manipulate it to their advantage in every way shape and/or form, then it's up to us to dig our way out of the hole that we helped bury ourselves in the first place, it is an outright scam. Look at the Social Security Numbers... and the Real ID's have not even dug in yet.

    They don't have guns over there, now you know why.
    If the stampman tells you to kiss his ass, shall he get away with it and live? Don't let your courage cool, or a few bullies scare you. We've nothing to fear but slavery. Love your liberty, and fight for it like men who know its value. Once lost it will never, never be regained.
