Fears over privacy as police expand surveillance project

Database to hold details of millions of journeys for five years

The police are to expand a car surveillance operation that will allow them to record and store details of millions of daily journeys for up to five years, the Guardian has learned.
A national network of roadside cameras will be able to "read" 50m licence plates a day, enabling officers to reconstruct the journeys of motorists.
Police have been encouraged to "fully and strategically exploit" the database, which is already recording the whereabouts of 10 million drivers a day, during investigations ranging from counter-terrorism to low-level crime.

Council to fingerprint staff as they clock in for work

Hundreds council workers are set to be fingerprinted before they are allowed to work, it has been revealed.
Staff at Westminster Council in London will 'clock in' by scanning their fingerprints in what is believed to be the first scheme of its type in Britain.
But today civil liberties and data protection watchdogs warned the scheme had 'Big Brother' overtones and should be abandoned.

Lets deal with this answer by asking you some more questions.

Do you mind be stopped in the street to produce your ID?
Do you mind being searched on the street with no explanation.
Do you mind if your mobile phone microphone listens to none phone face to face conversations.
Do you mind being finger printed, eye and face scanned as standard.
Do you mind if your internet searches and sites you look at are monitored.
Do you mind if your personal information is held on a super data base open to many council, government, police and intelligence service personnel.
Do you mind if someone hacks or sells your details for profit or crime.
Do you mind if your children's details are held there.
Do you mind if technology and computer software decides if you should be arrested or questioned.
Do you mind if this technology and software made a mistake or was faulty.
Do you mind if your DNA is held by those who may wish to control you in the future. After all DNA is proof of being guilty isn't it? Can it be planted.
Do you mind if being critical of the government is made a crime.
Do you mind having a spy chip in your wheelie bin to be find for too much or the wrong type of rubbish.

You see all the above is already happening or being discussed by government with a view to introducing it.

If you don't mind and don't value your privacy then please email me your bank account details, N.I. number, medical record, criminal record, political views, tax details, debt record, children's names, ages and school. Then please let me know all your planned movements for the coming week. After all, why should you be bothered if you haven't done anything? How could this information be used now or in the future to control, blackmail, rob or implicate and frame you by police, governments or criminals.

Do you want to be left alone unless you DO something wrong, or do you want to be suspected and have to prove yourself innocent when questioned?

Do you intend to commit a crime in the future?Maybe you wont mind having your brain scanned to tell if you have an intention of committing a future crime. Article. Guardian UK

Time for a nice holiday or business trip. You board your aircraft and sit down in your seat. In the back of the seat in front of you is a video camera. You will be monitored in case you are guilty of being about to commit a crime. How about having a continuous video of your face on an airliner to detect suspicious activity or intent. I suppose you cold say "If I'm not doing anything wrong, why should I be bothered" Article.

Police want to use Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) or spy planes to watch for trouble. So street CCTV that watches you, listens to you and can shout orders and X-Rays you isn't enough. Article. No were going to have a spy in the sky. Of course it's only to watch the bad guys to keep us safe (again) Do you really think that once it's introduced without a backlash from the grateful public that it wont be used to watch and track others? Article.

The right to peer inside your iPod

The heads of the G8 governments, meeting this week, are about to ratify the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (Acta), which - it's claimed - could let customs agents search your laptop or music player for illegally obtained content. The European Parliament is considering a law that would lead to people who illicitly download copyrighted music or video content being thrown off the internet. Virgin Media is writing to hundreds of its customers at the request of the UK record industry to warn them that their connections seem to have been used for illegal downloading. Viacom gets access to all of the usernames and IP addresses of anyone who has ever used YouTube as part of its billion-dollar lawsuit in which it claims the site has been party to "massive intentional copyright infringement".

Anti-Terror Laws Allow Council To Spy On Family

Council spying Laws designed to monitor terrorists have been used by a council to spy on a family to make sure they lived in a school catchment area.
The movements of one couple and their three children were checked without their knowledge for almost three weeks.
A specially trained officer used legislation under the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act to do it.
The Act was dubbed a 'snooper's charter' when passed in 2000.
The surveillance began after the couple applied for their youngest daughter – who is three – to go to a certain school.
They planned to move house but asked the council for advice on its admissions policy to ensure she would get a place.
Officials told them as long as they did not move before the end of January their daughter would qualify for the school and could start in September.
The family were told later, during a meeting with the council after they moved, that they had been under surveillance from February 13 to March 3.
Detailed notes about their movements included 'female and three children enter target vehicle and drive off' and 'curtains open and all lights on in premises'.
The mother, 39, whose other children are six and ten, said: 'I'm incensed that legislation designed to combat terrorism can be turned on a three-year-old.
'It was very creepy when we found out people had been watching us.
'The council will not tell us how long they are going to keep the information or what they are going to do with it.
'They won't tell us if the people watching us were police-checked or whether they were taking photographs.'
The surveillance was carried out by Poole Borough Council in Dorset. Jamie Welch, of Liberty, condemned the tactics as 'ridiculous' and claimed they would undermine public trust in lawful surveillance.
Lib Dem home affairs spokesman Chris Huhne said using the powers to spy on parents was 'ridiculously over the top'.
He said the council officials 'should lie down in a darkened room until the urge to play James Bond passes'.
A spokesman for the council defended its move, saying it was committed to 'investigating the small minority of people who attempt to break the law'.

Be sure to eat your r.f.i.d.

The tracking technology known as RFID (Radio Frequency IDentification) is showing up everywhere from grocery stores, to shipping containers, to gas station, to toll roads. Now, your intestines can join in the radio wave fun!
Kodak has filed this patent application for RFID tagged capsules that could be swallowed to track activity in a patient’s digestive system. The capsules would contain a tiny tracking chip which could be used to monitor a patient’s medication history, or to transmit other medical information to a nearby RF data collector. The pills would be designed to break down over time without harming the recipient.

While the idea might seem a little odd, it actually has potential to reduce the need for invasive medical procedures, as well as to ensure that patients take the proper dosage of their medicines.

Police State U.K.

Citizens shouted at by surveillance cameras, trashcans tracked by microchips, DNA taken from litter droppers, and in the future "micro-chipped like dogs"

Citizens of the United Kingdom have become one of the most surveilled, tracked, and traced populations on the earth, with around 4 million surveillance cameras watching their every move. While the United States is moving in the same direction, the U.K. has moved much further in many respects with the construction of a police state control grid. The 9/11 attacks, and even more so the London bombings of July 7th, 2005 have been the reasoning behind the increased security measures. It's not just surveillance cameras they have to worry about, new laws are being passed and others proposed which would place yet another layer of Orwellian control over their lives. READ HERE

"Big Brother" Gaining Ground in Great Britain

Maybe George Orwell was on to something...It seems that "Big Brother" is gaining ground in Great Britain. Starting in 2009, in order to apply for a passport, Britons will be required to register their fingerprints, facial scans and a host of personal information such as second homes, drivers licenses and insurance policy numbers. If they do this, they will receive a national ID card and then their passport.

Your ID card details will be sold to banks

Banks and other businesses are to be sold access to personal information stored on the Government's ID cards database.
Ministers want to raise hundreds of millions towards the £540million a year cost of running the controversial scheme. The data which banks, financial institutions and others will be allowed to access includes names, addresses, any second homes and National Insurance numbers.

Don't like ID cards? Hand over your passport

Anybody who objects to their personal details going on the new "Big Brother" ID cards database will be banned from having a passport. Phil Booth, of the NO2ID group, said: "The idea that ID cards scheme is voluntary, and people can opt-out, is a joke.

NHS Database and how to Opt Out.

I recently did this and my Doctor wrote back to confirm my medical records would NOT be added to the database! (please read below and follow the link at the bottom of this piece)
Your medical confidentiality is at risk from this new database, as over a million NHS employees and central government bureaucrats will have access to not only your medical records but also your demographic details—name, address, NHS Number, GP details, phone number (even if it’s ex-directory) and mobile number.
There is no opt out whatsoever for your demographic details. You can only have them hidden in special circumstances if the police or social services request it—if, for example, you are a celebrity or on a witness protection scheme. Many public and private sector workers will otherwise have access to your address and phone number, from social workers to pharmacists.
You will eventually be allowed to ‘lock down’ some of your medical details (though the security mechanisms haven’t been built yet). But although you can keep some of your medical details confidential from some of the doctors involved in your care, they can override this if they think it’s necessary, and there is no way for you to keep your information confidential from civil servants. You will no longer be able to attend any Sexual Health or GUM (Genito-Urinary Medicine) Clinic anonymously as all these details will also be held on this national database, alongside your medical records. For the first time everyone’s most up-to-date and confidential details are to be held on one massive database.
