have always told you that ID cards and biometric passports is about people control, not about identity theft or fraud, or
even illegal immigration, but controlling you and your movements, along with fingerprints,
DNA databases, RFID, NHS spine, tracking in cars,
4m cameras, email and telephone taps, more police arrest powers, more HMRC spying, bugging and entry powers, data sharing etc.
I wrote yesterday
about some strange wording in the immigration rules enforcement strategy document, with a reference that
drew my attention about the need for data sharing to deal effectively with
illegal migration. Not immigration but illegal migration.
I said immigrants
come in, migrants go out.
This could have
connotations as it did in the former East Germany of keeping people in, not keeping people
out, but using electronic methods rather than a Berlin Wall.
have always told you that this is about people control, not about law and order, identity
theft or fraud, but controlling you and your movements.
Today, this was confirmed.
James Hall, chief
executive of the Identity and Passport Service, the official in charge of the
supposedly-voluntary scheme, delivered his warning during a Downing Street
“webchat” and said the Government would allow people to opt out – but
in return they must “forgo the ability” to have a travel document.
Asked what would
happen to people who refuse to join the £5.4 billion scheme. Mr Hall replied:
“There is no need to register and have fingerprints taken – but you will forgo
the ability to have a passport“.
People will be
required to give fingerprints, biometric details such as a facial scan and a
wealth of personal details – including second homes, bank accounts, family
members, driving licence and insurance numbers.
With one in every
eight people saying they will refuse to sign-up, up to five million adults
could effectively be refused permission to leave the country. As time goes on,
you will also be refused health services, banking, benefits and anything else
the government says you will need an ID card for.
reacted to Mr Hall's remarks with fury, saying they were yet more evidence of the
lurch towards “Big Brother” Britain.
As reported in
Mail, Legal challenges were inevitable, as restricting the right of free
movement is a grave breach of human rights law. Strange how politicians have been calling for us to opt-out of the European Human Rights Act, now we know why.
This is about people control, not about identity theft or
fraud, or even illegal immigration, but controlling you and your movements.
The Home Office
said it had never hidden the fact anybody refusing to give their biometric and
other personal details to the ID cards database would not be eligible for a
passport. THIS IS A LIE, an out and out LIE.
As the truth behind each bit of the jigsaw begins to come to light, it
confirms that this government is undertaking a coup d'etat, creating the Orwellian state.
And it is being driven
by an UNELECTED European Commission, with this Government being complicit lock,
stock and barrel.

Whatever they tell you today,
you can be sure it will be used for something different tomorrow.
