Despite all their big talk about ‘the Nanny State’ and liberties when they were in opposition the Tories have proved that they’re as keen as Labour was to ensure that Britain becomes the most surveillanced society on the planet. We’re already the most highly filmed population and now Dave – Digi Cam – Cameron wants to force internet and communications companies to surrender our information to the government’s intelligence agency, the GCHQ… an act which will put the UK on par with China and Iran.
Combine this with the new National Identity Register (which may include compulsory ‘voice biometrics’ for everyone in Britain) and you have a situation which is, as Johnny Void has already shown, even worse than Labour’s National ID Card proposal!
Labour no doubt will feign disapproval, but the reality is that this is where all government are heading. The good news is that the technology which makes this possible is also the technology which will allow us to transcend outmoded hierarchical systems like government. 😉
