Stalinist Brown now runs Authoritarian State

Following
my piece on 2010,
and all the databases that are coming together to log and track your every
movement, spending, earning, travel and association with others, comes this
piece collated and written by Dodo

This
frightening summary needs to be read, printed, circulated and republished. You
tell us what kind of
Britain is Brown and the EU building.
Remember that all of this has been done with the collusion and agreement of the
Conservative and Liberal Parties who in the main voted for the legislation
listed below.


A summary
of the principal legislative sources of the erosion of rights and freedoms in
Britain becomes cumulatively chilling.

This
entirely excludes all of the procedural shifts which facilitate the huge expansion of CCTV. I have avoided entering commentary on the shift in the Zeitgeist and the obfuscation which has permitted a general public acceptance (and even support)of such cumulative repression.

Further
commentary can be found with the intelligent use of Search engines. Preferably other than Google if you want to keep your browsing habits untracked.

Do not
forget that the information collection for marketing purposes by Corporate institutions, whether Google or Tesco, is a further part of the erosion of the liberty of action with unseen monitoring or intervention.



CRIMINAL JUSTICE AND PUBLIC ORDER ACT 1994

Abolishes a suspect's right to silence (by permitting Courts and Juries to draw inference from a suspect's refusal to disclose matters to the Police at the time of arrest.

a particular account, when given only a number or electronic address associated
with the account, again without a warrant.


THE
PROCEEDS OF CRIME ACT 2002

Under this
Act, the Criminal Assets Recovery Agency is set up and in Part 5, it is given
the power to seize a person's assets via civil procedures in court.

them or their lawyers.

THE
SERIOUS ORGANISED CRIME AND POLICE ACT 2005


Sets up the
Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA).

All
offences, no matter how trivial, are now arrestable, granting powers to obtain
DNA, intimate samples, fingerprints and
photographs of those arrested, to be retained on file regardless of whether the
suspect is charged with or convicted of an offence.

Don't
discard your cigarette butt.

Protestors,
even a single protestor, must apply at least 24 hours (and more normally 6
days) in advance for a permit to protest within 1km of Parliament, or any other
designated place.


LEGISLATIVE
AND REGULATORY REFORM ACT 2006

Originally
drafted in terms which would have made this an Enabling Act, the diluted text
with some safeguards introduced remains the second part of Enabling thinking.

By this,
Ministers can, with minimal Parliamentary scrutiny, modify and enact
regulations, interpretations, resources targeting and law.


IMMIGRATION,
ASYLUM AND NATIONALITY ACT 2006

Further
powers tor restrict the rights of immigrants and asylum seekers.

clarification of offences of glorification etc.
Extends detention period.



IDENTITY
CARDS ACT 2006

Well
publicised. Read and weep.

More detail
of this and other intrusive measures at the No2ID resource.



There are times when I feel utterly lost, demotivated, by this juggernaut of intervention, 
the abuse of an authority with a “reasonable” face.

The perversion of minds continues through misrepresentation, through propaganda,
through an arrogance of rectitude which denies freedom in the name of some
collective "security".

Measures such as these laws were not deemed necessary during the IRA campaign
from 1969 to 1997. Nor, for that matter, during the Second World War of the last century.

How much freedom will you give up for a Government's definition of what it is which
should make you feel secure?

For the Government's actions in the name of "security" do nothing for my personal sense
of security. They act in erosion of that.

Stalinist Brown is now about to neuter his own party, by taking away
VOTING
at Party Conference.




Remember Pastor Niemoller.
