Food for thought or fantasy ? Database State: The UK's Electronic Prison - Part One The gathering and holding of information has permeated into every facet of life in Great Britain and no one batters an eyelid. It's time to reveal what's really going to happen in the UK. Steve Watson / Infowars | April 20 2006 The UK has lapsed into a database surveillance state, an electronic prison where every aspect of the lives of its citizens is determined by the control and flow of personal information between companies and government departments. Simply in order to own a house, a car, a TV and pay tax we must provide information which is stored forever on electronic databases and very often sold to whomever provides the highest bid. The population of the United Kingdom are being trained like chimpanzees to sing and perform when any designated 'authority figure' demands they hand over their personal information in anticipation of the mandatory ID card that will weed out the subversives and block the non-conformists from using public services or being able to travel. Worse still we are routinely reminded that no longer is it necessary for human interaction with this information - the database will manage everything and issue punishments accordingly should we not comply. Recently in this country we have been subjected to threatening adverts remind us that the TV Licensing company has "a database of 28 million addresses that shows us who does and does not have a current TV licence". The purpose of the licence fee is to provide income for the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) radio and television services. Under the Wireless Telegraphy Acts anyone using or owning 'with intent to use' a television to watch any channel (including satellite or cable) or to record and watch video tapes needs a licence. The adverts are set to sinister music, use dark lighting and inform us that they no longer need to "watch us" because they have a massive database that will do it for them and issue fines automatically to addresses that do not appear on the database but use televisions. Furthermore people who watch TV on mobile phones or computers could face massive fines unless they're on the database. There are also moves afoot to replace the TV license with a "computer tax" for anyone that owns a PC.
