A World First In Citizen Surveillance By The State

6 December 2018 — True Publica

By TruePublica: Last month TruePublica reported that the British government were going full Orwellian and was now aiming to create a biometric database on top of its mass data bulk collection through surveillance systems that have been deemed illegal by the highest courts in the UK and EU. However, in Australia – a member of the Five-Eyes surveillance clan, the law is being changed to take us one step closer to the complete eradication of privacy.

Is China Really More “Dystopian” Than The UK? By Andrew KORYBKO

4 December 2018 — Oriental Review

RT reported that the UK’s so-called “National Data Analytics Solution” will see an algorithm process whichever of 30 separate data points have been recorded about a person in local and national police databases in order to predict which members of the population are most likely to commit a crime or be victimized by one, after which the state will dispatch local health and social workers to offer “counseling” to them in an attempt to prevent the computer’s envisioned scenario from transpiring. This program is being likened to the 2002 film “Minority Report” and carries with it a vibe of China’s controversial “social credit” system, albeit without any “rewards” being offered for law-abiding behavior. In fact, one can actually make the claim that instead of the UK copying China to a degree, it was actually China that learned from the UK seeing as how the island nation’s mass surveillance system used to be far ahead of the communist nation’s one.

9 November 2018 — TruePublica

But that’s not all.

Britain Moves From Democracy to Authoritarian State in Pernicious Veil of Secrecy

20 September 2018 — Truepublica

First published September 2015. This article is now three years old.

medConfidential Bulletin, 6th July 2018

6 July 2018 — MedConfidential

Firstly, we would like to thank everyone who kindly let us know when they received their letter about the new National Data Opt-Out. This helped us confirm what patients were being told. 

Clearly NHS Digital has not written to everyone who made a Type-2 objection (see below) – and NHS England, which is responsible for informing everyone else, still refuses to write to people who haven’t opted out about their new choice. Meanwhile, its virtually invisible ‘communications campaign’ stumbles on. Have you heard any of the radio ads or talk radio debates that apparently NHS England has arranged?

Also, if you’ve not received a letter yet, we’d be very interested to hear when yours shows up, because…
