Edward Snowed has revealed to us that we have all been weighed and measured by GCHQ and the NSA in America (1). The reason we are told we need this level of scrutiny is because amongst us are terrorists and paedophiles (2).
Does anyone really believe ‘The Government’ hasn’t subjected MP’s to the same level of observation as the rest of us? Do any of us really believe that MI5, GCHQ and the NSA don’t know what every Honourable Member gets up to (3)?
These spy agencies are failing to stop paedophile MP’s or wannabe ISIS goons, so why do we tolerate their abuse of our privacy, and who will believe that the security services aren’t being selectively ineffective when they miss opportunities to prosecute establishment criminals for decades (4)? Just how credible can our spies be when they can find no fire despite a sky full of smoke?
It’s time to reform these agencies, and with them the entire establishment. Let’s start with parliament. Let’s make a new rule. If you want to be an MP you must never, ever, rape children. What the public wants is not hard to discern, they just want decent people doing a decent job, not a bunch of old boys who close ranks to protect the sexually deviant (5).
Our local MP, Sarah Wollaston, voted against whistle blower protection in high level paedophile cases early this year (6). The proposal, put forward by John Mann MP, would have afforded workers protection from prosecution under the official secrets act. Currently, if your work is covered by the official secrets act, you face prison if you expose criminality to the press or police. If your boss is an MP, for example, you wouldn’t be a witness if you spoke out against them, but you could become a defendant in a case mounted against you.

Popular hate speech columnist, Katie Hopkins, has been found on a rickroll parody blog post.
In fairness she probably won’t give a damn that I’ve written this, in fact she claims to revel in criticism.
Despite her assertions to the contrary, all this effort to damn her fellow man is having a damaging effect on Hopkins, as the woman carry’s an alarm that is connected to the police, because she fears being murdered.
In her latest outpouring Hopkins suggested using gunboats instead of rescuing people fleeing war torn countries.
A most controversial traffic scheme in Totnes has used up £42,000 so far, and that is before Devon County Council launch an appeal at Bristol High Court.
As of April 14th the ‘ETO’ in Totnes, which sees cars enter the Fore Street/High Street half way up and go either up town, or down, has cost thousands of pounds with £15,000 been spent on legal advice alone, due to the court case.
These cost look set to rise as the council are seeking leave to appeal a judgment against the ETO on a technical issue. Specifically, the new system should have been approved by the Secretary of State because it changed the route of Bob the Bus.
Devon County Council have £5,000 held back in case the appeal fails and the road must be returned to the old ‘one way up’, which critics say encourages rat running through town.
Last week a racist ex-banker spoke out in support of a war criminal, who in his turn was speaking out to support the words of a man so privileged he encountered grease for the first time during a sandwich eating performance.
Meanwhile, Sarah Wollaston, fresh from voting against whistle blower protection in high-level paedophile cases, turns to twitter to tell you the reason you can’t get a doctors appointment is because of Labour.
All this hasn’t stopped the electorate though, in their droves they either do or don’t vote. And you have to wonder why?
