A Reader Writes


This pay as you go driving idea is baaaaad news. And its so obvious!!! Satellite tracking in every car in the UK so they can ‘charge per mile’. Fuck that! With Sat Tracking they will be able to monitor your speed constantly. They will also know exactly where you are, where you have been, and probably where you are going!!!!

This is scaring me. If this goes through there is nothing we can do about it!!!! 1984!!!

Oh and another thing!! I was parked in my car last night in a public car park. Just sitting. I needed some time to myself. A police car pulls up next to me. The guy gets out, strolls up to my window and asks me what im doing. “Im sitting in my car” I replied. “No, what are you doing here” he replied. “Nothing, Im just sitting in my car”.

The rest of the conversation went along the lines of him asking me to move along and me asking why (being in a public place doing nothing illegal and with no intentions to either). But He had made up his mind that I was clearly up to something and had to be moved on before I released Anthrax into the population or something.

Ah well. I wonder if I’ll get an ASBO for walking down the street after 9pm?

Take care.

Speak to you soon


I got the above email from Alistair this morning.

It made me feel happy because when I heard about the new plans for charging drivers by the mile, the first thing I thought was, “WHAT? They’re going to GPS track every single car on every trip?”

I’m glad it’s not just me who doesn’t trust any government with that kind of surveillance power.

So… potentially in a future Britain, we’ll have to carry ID cards with us everywhere we go and every trip we make in our cars will be noted on logged on central government computers.

How long before New Labour see that they can combine the two and just implant chips directly into our bodies.

These chips could tell Butcher Blair exactly who we are, where we are and what we’re thinking.

Who would oppose these chips? Only MENTAL COMMUNISTS! God-fearing, law-abiding citizens would have nothing to fear from 24-hour government surveillance.

Don’t you see that we must remove all our freedoms in order to protect our freedoms?

German Experts Accepted Tobacco Bribes

Leading German public health experts who played down the dangers of cigarettes – including one who argued that discrimination against smokers was like the Nazi persecution of the Jews – have been secretly financed for years by the tobacco industry, it has been alleged.

Yet more manipulation by the tobacco multinationals. Look at any “smokers’ rights” group and you’ll find big tobacco money financing their ridiculous bleating.

“What about our freedom to smoke?”

What about my freedom to not get cancer, you cunts?

I watched the McLibel documentary last night and the actions of McDonalds reminded me of BAT. How must it be to be Martin Broughton, to know that your product is giving millions of people cancer? What level of evil does a human have to reach for them to think, “Fuck ’em! They’re stupid, let’s sell them more cigarettes!”

When I heard the voices of the McDonalds’ executives trying to bully the Greenpeace activists in the documentary, they had exactly the same oily tones as tobacco exectutives, CBI members and Tories. The same “join us and you can be RICH like us” message that every capitalist uses to try and bribe their opponents.

And yet…

Once, these men and women must have been children. Once, surely, they must have believed it was wrong to hurt people, to lie, to cheat, to bully. What happened to them? What happened to their sense of humanity, to their honour?

The German branch of the WHO said the close relationship between health experts and the tobacco industry had effectively blocked attempts to curb smoking in Germany for the past two decades.

For these scientists to have taken tobacco money to distort the truth is appalling. They can’t even plead ignorance: they’re educated enough to know very well the horrendous damage smoking can do. What kind of scum squashes all that down and just keeps taking the money? How can anyone do something so dishonourable?

I really can’t understand it.
