The culture of
spying on neighbours is being promoted across this land, like the creeping
sickness of the Gestapo, KGB or the Stasi.
As the latest
news of the Government paying nearly £30 million of our tax money to train local
authority smoking snoopers to spy in pubs and clubs and give them powers to

sickness of the snoops at their own game, expose them, shame them, snoop on
them, and report them to their neighbours.
