WHERE THERES MUCK THERES MONEY FOR THE GOVERNMENT

Microchips in dustbins spy on three million

Britain is the only major European country not to have separate charges for refuse collection. But there are fears that any new system could cost an average of £20 a month for each home.massive concern over the disappearance of traditional weekly refuse collections. The Daily Telegraph revealed last month that about nine million people now had to put up with collections every two weeks.

    WHY THE @&%*$# DOES THE GOVERNMENT NEED TO ELECTRONICALLY SPY ON ITS CITIZENS AT EVERY OPPORTUNITY?
    Why do they want to? How is all of this cost-effective? Why does it add up and why is it not a megalomaniac rogue state gone mad, paranoid-obsessed with its own people trying to overthrow it and alienating them in the process to the point where they would want to?

    Just a couple of mass-cost-freedom-stealing-misery-and-isolation-inducing nutter schemes we are apparently happily engaged in implementing:

    – cctv for security
    – satellite tracking for road charging
    – microchip tracking for dustbins (secret-camera baked bean cans, wasn’t it a couple of months back?)
    – numberplate readers to find out where terrorists go on holiday.
    – survellance helicopler filming Merseyside

    For !!!!!!’s sake, why does it take 20 million quid, an Orwellian ivasion of privacy, an IT/PFI fiasco and a politician saying “la-la-la-la-la-la-la” with their fingers in their ears while everyone voices genuine concerns, to implement every @@@@@ing new autostimulatory policy initiative? AND WHY DO WE, THE CITIZENS WANT TO PAY, WITH STEALTH TAXES, FOR OUR OWN INCARCERATION IN A POLICE STATE? I MEAN, COME ON, BRITAIN, TURN OF THE TELLY AND LOOK AT YOURSELF!

    Here’s my take, for 20M a piece:
    – put an extra bobby on the beat and get him to build relationships with local people
    – anonymous pay-as-you-go swipe cards that can be bought at newsagents and a simple “road-type” scheme. No satellites, no geographical tracking.
    – An extra dustbin man on each round to tot up what is being thrown out and pass it on only if one particular property is being unreasonable (ie: don’t bother tracking everyone, just a handful of outliers)
    – some data is just not worth collecting. How about a couple of officers personally watching each of a handful of real suspects.
    – how about a few more playgrounds, some live (i.e. human socialisation) entertainment and community cohesion development to cut crime.

    All in all, how about people, relationships, freedom to do things in private, accepting you can’t catch/tax/watch/monitor/analyse everyone all of the time, using some intelligence rather than napalm-bombing society with antisocial, dehumanising technological props and taking a view that there is some good to be found in human nature, particularly if it is encouraged by action and example – and taking a @#!ing chill pill (of which I need several right now) rather than the LSD the government have been gargling.

    (rant over)

    As I white this, a helicopter hovers over london, filming proles on the streets in case one should step out of line, or maybe exercise their semocratic right to protest within a kilometle of the Houses of Pale-lament (Worm-tongue from Lord-of-the-Rings anyone?)
