While the non-debate over the next leader continues Blair aims to cement the Big Brother agenda before he leaves
A series of policy review documents have been published today by the Cabinet Office of the British Government that detail Tony Blair's desire to implement radical "crime tackling" measures that would not look out of place in the most hellish of dictatorship states on the face of the planet.
Blair has said that measures including microchipping the mentally ill and injecting sex offenders with hormones to negate their desires, so called "chemical castration", are aimed at ensuring that a "new New Labour" agenda will take the Government into the next election after he steps down.
Blair announced that the measures were intended to shake up a public that are "getting bored" of the government.
One document, entitled Crime, Justice And Cohesion, says there will have to be "trade-offs" between liberty and security as technology and profiling are used to tackle crime.
The policy paper also calls for the possible implementation of technology such as face and voice recognition, a DNA database, identity cards, and satellite surveillance.
The papers come at a time when Blair is fiercely defending plans to centralise data on all citizens, calling it "sharing data in a sensible way so the customer gets a better service", while critics and opposition MPs are labeling it "a database from the cradle to the grave".
The plans for a central database are nothing new, we have previously highlighted the long term agenda to centralise information into one giant hub that will link into the already existing DNA database and hook up to a national ID card.
Without ANY parliamentary debate or legislation, every person in this country is being targeted for inclusion on a DNA database from birth. Hundreds of thousands of children aged between 10 and 18 have had their DNA added to the database despite never being cautioned or charged for any offence.
The British government has also passed legislation to make every offence arrestable. Under Section 44 of the Terrorism Act, this includes not giving your details if stopped by police. Every suspect arrested, even if proven innocent, has their DNA added to the criminal database and stored forever in perpetuity.
Meanwhile EU officials are crying out for a massive pan-European network of DNA and fingerprint databases which would also be open to the Department of Homeland Security in the US. This does not bode well for anyone who values privacy given that the UK, the most advanced big brother state, is also the biggest critic of such a project.
Medical records would be stored on the database also, as well as on an implantable chip that may be given to anyone considered to be mentally unstable. Under the new mental health act you can be sectioned for mild depression.
Take the recent case of Anna McHugh, who visited her GP after a failed intensive cycle of IVF treatment. She admitted that she was a little depressed and needed some help.
Four hours later she found herself admitted to St Pancras Hospital. Then, having admitted to the attending doctor that she had contemplated suicide, she was sectioned under Section 5.2 of the Mental Health Act and detained in a lock-down ward. When her husband tried to rescue her, she was held in a headlock while a doctor discussed her case with him.
In light of this and many other cases, is it so far fetched to imagine people being forcibly implanted with microchips under the mental health act?
The government doesn't seem to think so.
The paper also notes how Switzerland prescribes ###### rather than the substitute methadone to addicts and prisoners in Texas are forced to wear pink T-shirts to make them look gay.
Blair will be proud to see these things and more associated with his legacy in Britain.
