In the light of some recent disclosures regarding the escapades, either real or alleged, of our Security Agencies, as well as the huge assets of the American NSA, I would like to bring to your attention some statistics from a more local outfit, namely Durham County Council. They were amongst the many who were clamouring to gain access to our data, both private and public, so that we might be ‘better protected’, through the ‘SNOOPERS’ CHARTER’, allegedly killed off by Nick Clegg, but is reported as being returned to life as being ‘IMPORTANT FOR NATIONAL SECURITY’. Now I am not decrying the activities of our Secret Services, who already have a heavy job to do in controlling and slapping the wrists of all these tiresome Muslims who insist upon their right to bomb, maim and kill us because their Religion demands it, but, one side talks to another, so we should be at least concerned.

I asked our local Council in 2011 various questions regarding their activities under the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act, which the Government has given them the power to covertly view, record and monitor our e-mail, phone and general behaviour.

Their reply, which was very illuminating, stated that, from 2007 to the end of 2009, there had been a total of 225 requests for surveillance operations. As they are now able to bring requests together into a block, (for statistical purposes only, you must understand ‘sarcasm alert’) there were a further possible 270 actual surveillance activities authorised to proceed. So, you may well ask, of this substantial number of intrusions into the private lives of residents of County Durham, how many resulted in prosecutions?

Well, the reply, taken verbatim from the Council’s letter to me was for a grand total of ONE.

Our response: There has been one successful prosecution which went to court in March 2011. This was a fly tipping offence caught on a covert CCTV camera.

 

So thats all right then?

  1. “Bercow is an infiltrationist jew” – Yeah, the dirty thievin’ Jews are this world’s problems right? I consider myself as patriotic and proud of my English culture (not-Scottish) as anybody and I can’t stand Bercow, but not because of his Jewish background.
    Do you know that in every Jewish synaggogue service there is a prayer said for the safety of the Queen and all her ministers? That is said before any prayers for the state of Israel.

    I’m sick of this site now, infested by such rubbish, so I’m unsubscribing in disgust. You win. I don’t want to debate you, you can just wallow in the sty you inhabit.

    David Vance, if you read this, thanks for setting this site up, I admire all that you stand for – I’m sick of underhand throwaway anti-Jewish lines like that.

  2. Davie – there are jews who oppose this nonsense and those who push it forward. The latter are all zionists whose allegiance is not to your treacherous queen.

  3. davieboy,

    Please do not leave this site in protest at the printed antics of our resident phobic commenter. Allan@ is well known, on ATW at least, for his wide knowledge of every conspiracy theory known to Man, and a few more which are unknown to all except himself.

    I left his off-topic comment up simply because to remove it would tell him that someone actually read his garbage.

  4. Mike – that’s strange. We are told by many on this site that state surveillance is just a ‘conspiracy theory’ put forward by swivel-eyed loons, yet there it is linked by you. On this site, I was told by the gay lobby that there is absolutely no intention to impose gay ‘marriage’ on Christian Churches, yet there it is.

  5. Prosecutions aren’t the only measure. It might be the weakest metric.

    CCTV also acts as a deterrent. And it gives useful after-the-fact evidence, as was seen in the aftermath of 7/7, Boston, and other incidents.

  6. Using this as a metric makes about as much sense as asking ” how many terrorist plots have been broken up by the TSA Security station at LAX “.

    It’s the wrong question entirely.

  7. David Vance, if you read this, thanks for setting this site up, I admire all that you stand for – I’m sick of underhand throwaway anti-Jewish lines like that.

    Allan’s anti-Semitism is indeed appalling to all decent people. I’m shocked at how seldom it’s called out. Perhaps David ought to get the disinfectant out.

  8. CCTV also acts as a deterrent. And it gives useful after-the-fact evidence, as was seen in the aftermath of 7/7, Boston, and other incidents.

    Except that on 7/7, the 9/11 airports, ‘shoe-bomber’ (Paris), ‘underwear bomber’ (Amsterdam) the CCTV just happened to be malfunctioning – by sheer cohencidence!
