George Orwell wrote about The Ministry of Truth, which
concerned itself with news, entertainment, education, and the fine arts. The
Ministry of Peace, which concerned itself with war. The Ministry of Love, which
maintained law and order. And the Ministry of Plenty, which was responsible for
economic affairs.

The Times
writes about new Home Office plans which are pure Orwell.

Council workers, charity staff and doctors will be required to tip off
police about anyone whom they believe could commit a violent crime,
under secret Home Office plans.

Civil liberties campaigners last night said that the proposal raised the
prospect of people being placed under surveillance and detained even though
they have committed no offence
.

And a senior Whitehall
official, who leaked the plans to The Times, said that it would entail a
mass of personal information, including sensitive medical records, being passed
around many different agencies — even if there was no firm evidence of any
potential risk from an individual.

Bad day at the office, letting off steam in the car park, just had argument
with the wife, just been ripped off, just been cut up on the roundabout, mad,
angry.  That’s enough…..

It
suggests that two new agencies — one for potential criminals, the other for
potential victims — might be created to collate reports from the front line and
carry out “full risk assessments”.
 

Are these morons at the Home
Office absolutely barking mad.

They want to turn us into a Nation of spies, of snoops and informers, neighbours telling on neighbours, sowing the seeds of mistrust. We saw what that did to East Germany. Do you really want that to happen here?

Dizzy sums it much better.

UK Liberty's view is also compelling.

    No, they are not mad. They are just not on this planet. They just don't see things the way that humans do. They have no idea of the meaning and importance of ordinary human contact and decency. Which is why they push the surveillance state answers to anything that anyone raises as a problem.
    I seriously suggest that people should now desist from raising any problem with government for solution. For we can now see that the “solution” will inevitably be much worse than the original problem!
