EU (Blair) data slavery moves forward
The Churchill*-world-government inspired Council of Europe said this week "The CIA appears to have abducted suspects in Europe and illegally transferred them to other countries**" Forbes and now the European Parliament has "agreed to the formation of a special committee to deal with the alleged actions of operatives of the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency in Europe" 2
*(As much a nasty treacherous piece of trash as any kind of 'British Bulldog')

Haha! Our socialist regime vill vork to get to ze bottom of zis completely unaccpetable situation. Haha! You vill join the Euro, stop saying Israel should move to ze Europe, it is completely unacceptable haha! and so on...
So we can all look forward to another pantomime investigation. Well the European Parliament has also just caved in to the UK Presidency pressure on data retention:
"The Parliament has given in to pressure from the UK Presidency and adopted a set of amendments that bring the draft directive on data retention into line with a more far-reaching proposal backed by, among other countries, the UK.
The vote means that member states will have to impose on internet service providers and telecommunication operators an obligation to store all traffic and location data for fixed and mobile telephony as well as e-mail, web-browsing, instant messaging and other internet services. The data will have to be stored for a period of six to 24 months and must be made accessible to authorities investigating on non-specified "serious crimes" euractiv
Sometime back, the Guardian reported 'oh well they won't be retaining web site addresses' causing me to pull a big article I had written on it, but that certainely doesn't seem to be the case. And yes, the UK already has it's own data-retention recommendations who's adoption has largely been a mystery. If you are a UK ISP employee write to me.
But guys and girls, let me just explain something about internet data retention...
They try to justify it on the surface by saying it will help in terrorism cases. Absolute total rubbish. It literally won't do a thing, because covering your tracks against logging via the internet is a doddle. And if you are really a suicide bomber you are not going to give a crap about Ian Blair's political police rummaging through your ISP logs of Jihad websites.
Let me spell it out: If you take the war-on-terror at face value, which few do, then the terrorists have already won and you have lost. And, just on this alone, you can see why 6 months to 2 years of web-surfing logging isn't comparable to land-line or mobile logging (which is also out of control):

Web surfing logging reveals the lifestyle and interests of the surfer, which can be extremely intimate. 6 months - 2 years worth of web logs means that intimate detailed profiles will be built up. It creates a God-like status, way above phone logging, and in this case the God would be the European Commission. Based on the fact that they know this is not going to do a thing to stop anything, why are they doing it ? It's just another part of rewriting society and reducing people to this new slavery.
On these kind of issues, some spin doctor came up with turning everthing around by saying 'we are protecting the most imporant right, the right to life' but we all need to understand that being biometrically branded to be inserted into a slave-grid, or having millions of CCTV cameras watching you (some with facial recognition), or having your medical records uploaded to a massive database, or having your internet surfing habits stored for 2 years, or having your brain and naked body scanned at airports (or on the underground), or your DNA retained, or the prospect of having every object you own wired with RFID chips, or a new batch of crazy terror laws created everytime there is another attack, or being at risk of being shot 7 times in the head by a political police force, or being taxed by the mile, or congestion charge zones used to justify spying on motorists, or having that same politicized police force wanting to lock you up for 3 months and trying to interfer with a vote in Parliament, and draping the police in politically correct garbage by questioning people opposed to homosexuals raising children, or watching the country push the world into a war on pack of lies, or arresting girls with a bollocks to Blair t-shirt or roughing up elderly Nazi-germany escapees who challenge that, is not life.
It is not a life worth defending. One wonders that the only reason it is even tolerated is because what is happening is so horrendous, so distorted that people turn away from it, knowing deep down that it is wrong and that one day it will come to an end.
This slave-life that is being created and unfolding before us must be removed and people now need to be thinking about how to remove it. There isn't a halfway house on this. It needs to end.
