Bigbrother They say if you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear. Here speaks such a man:

"I think we should track everyone and put their location on the internet for all to see (this way we can watch the watchers), we should DNA test all babies at birth and then every rapist/murderer/criminal etc would be caught first time (and know they can't get away with it). I know it sounds horrible that nobody could lie about their location and partake in criminal activity and easily get away with it- but what would be really horrible are all the victims who suffer because we shy away from using available technology that would protect them."

Imagine living your whole life in the knowledge that your boss, your wife, your mother or the editor of the local newspaper knows exactly where you are at any time. If you can face that with equanimity, you have no life. This is clearly a man to be pitied.

Sun Tzu observed that in an army, even the cowards are useful as they show a general where the battle is most fierce. In a free society, pathetic servile wretches such as this are useful too. They show the rest of us how far we could fall if we cease to be vigilant.

I see Neil cut and pasted the same response here as he did to me - including the typo. This was the third piece of New Labour fuckwittery to hit my desktop yesterday evening and I was becoming tired of the rage, so Neil got off lightly. Today, I responded with a little more vigour. The man has no understanding of human nature and is ignorant of history. Such people were the ones who enabled the behaviour of the Stazi and the Gestapo.

Thanks for the link.

Neil is (in)famous as the only blogger who could be found that supported id cards.

I thought Thomas Paine would find the following post on his blog interesting: "Why We Need A Bit More Equality And A Bit Less Liberty" – Polly Toynbee, Guardian columnist. Obviously something we all believe in, and I can't think of any risks.

Yes, I know , I know. But really think about it. It works both ways, you might not be able to get away with a sickie or lie about being with the secretary after work or going to the lap dance club or the pub, or smoking weed with your mates after school - in fact - people would have to face up to their lives and be honest to their nearest and dearest. And best of all it works both ways, so we will know if the boss is on the golf course or the south of Frnace or whatever.

I think it would show so many people up as hypocrites we would all become more relaxed. Nobody could pretend to be perfect anymore.


Dear Tom,

So, watching the decline of the UK from Russia - are we going the way of Russia, like the men and women you see every day in the street, or are we being softened up for something else?
