My, my - what next? It now appears, (even more than we already knew), that the Stasi is still alive and well and living in Britain - what a bunch of authoritarian Lefty bastards they are...... yes, Cleggeron, I'm talking to you.......
"The London Metropolitan Police is encouraging businesses and the general public to immediately report anyone who holds anti-government political beliefs to the authorities as terrorists, calling on people to become volunteer informants as the state prepares for widespread social unrest.
Anarchism is a political philosophy which considers the state undesirable, unnecessary, and harmful, and instead promotes a stateless society, or anarchy. Any information relating to anarchists should be reported to your local police.
In also calling on people to report Al-Qaeda paraphernalia to police, the briefing conflates “anarchists” with terrorists.
There is nothing inherently criminal about political philosophy whatever it is. The police work under the convention on human rights which disallows discrimination against people because of their political beliefs and even the request for information would seem to be in breach of that.
Of course, the “anarchist” label could apply to a whole range of political beliefs, but the fact that the state is now openly criminalizing anti-government sentiment and encouraging people to report on their neighbors for expressing dissent or displaying any sign of their political philosophy is a clear indication of how paranoid the British government has become of its own citizens.
It’s pretty absurd, but not surprising, when the state seeks to criminalise ideas it deems to be dangerous to its own survival. Indeed, if you want an insight into where the British government thinks this is all heading, look no further than a 2007 Ministry of Defence report which foresaw “the middle classes becoming revolutionary” and “taking on the role of Marx’s proletariat” within three decades. “The world’s middle classes might unite, using access to knowledge, resources and skills to shape transnational processes in their own class interest,” warns the report, predicting mass unrest and social dislocation.
This is why the authorities are already putting the squeeze on any kind of political beliefs that could be construed as anti-government. They are aware of the fact that the increasingly dangerous, unjust and economically deprived post-industrial revolution now being used to eviscerate the middle class in the west will provoke a hostile and radical reaction.
Encouraging people to report on each other for political beliefs deemed undesirable by the state is precisely what happened in Soviet Russia and Nazi Germany."
So, it's going to be all snoopers and curtain twitchers, is it?
Report a family member and get double points, is it?
I can easily see a situation where these spies and indeed even just suspected spies, (some of whom I'm positive will be wrongly identified), end up being attacked and perhaps seriously injured or worse simply because we have a paranoid, Lefty government and politicised police attempting to turn the people against each other. That level of state interference wouldn't have been out of place in the old Eastern Bloc - in fact, that's pretty much what the EU now is and was always intended to be - Lib/Lab/Con/Communitarians/Communists, they're all the fucking same! They rob you of your freedom bit by bit and then they do exactly the same thing with your money!
AND THE CUNTS STILL HAVE THE NERVE TO CALL THIS A DEMOCRACY!
