IPPR Welcomes Collaborators

The Ranting Penguin brings to my attention, in a forthright manner, the paper 'National Security Strategy and Implication for the UK Intelligence Community' which was published last week by the influential New Labour think tank, the Institute of Public Policy Research.

Sir David Omand, Whitehall's former and security and intelligence coordinator, called for unprecedented Big Brother powers to allow access to private details - including phone records, emails and travel information - to be given to the intelligence services....
'Modern intelligence access will often involve intrusive methods of surveillance and investigation, accepting that, in some respects, this may have to be at the expense of some aspects of privacy rights....application of modern data mining and processing techniques does involve examination of the innocent as well as the suspect to identify patterns of interest for further investigation'

As ever I like to go the source for the true story...

In this case, I won't bother as I don't want to be monitored and collaborate with a bunch of Statists.

Looks like the rest of our privacy is going to hell in a handcart. Not that we had much left anyway.

David Miliband was a researcher with this lot (IPPR) in the 90's. They were the one's who came out with this advice on climate propaganda in 2006 for all agencies dealing with the public:

Treating climate change as beyond argument
..it is our recommendation that, at least for popular communications, interested agencies now need to treat the argument as having been won.

This means simply behaving as if climate change exists and is real, and that individual actions are effective.

The ‘facts’ need to be treated as being so taken-for-granted that they need not be spoken.

Real Nu-Labour

To be fair, you don't have to register - you can download the paper in full without inputing any info. in any field.
