Again I have to remind readers that the 'authorities'
are using all kinds of tricks to get us into their system
of surveillance, control and fear.
They typically misuse the criminal and benefits systems,
but also use other means of monitoring people. For example,
by constantly promoting their counter-productive 'sexual
health' propaganda, they fill clinics with the dysfunctional
teenagers and young adults they create.
This latest example of petty authoritarianism
seems to take the biscuit, but it shows to what extremes
local 'authorities' will implement the diktats of the
powers elite and it happens every day.
In fact tens of thousands of people
last year were fined for having their bin lids open,
putting out extra bags or breaking a bin 'curfew'.
From the Daily
A man has been left £225 out of pocket
after he was charged with overfilling his bin by four
Gareth Wilson-Corkhill, 26, from Whitehaven
in Cumbria, said he was in shock when he found out about
the fine, issued by Copeland Borough Council.
He said: "I couldn't believe they would
do that. I don't leave the rubbish on the floor. Every
fortnight you can guarantee people's bins will be open
more than mine."
He added: "I have my rubbish collected
every fortnight. There are five people in my family,
three children, me and my wife. Plus I have my daughter
over on weekends.
"We recycle everything we can, including
plastics, cardboard, tins, glass and paper. We have
got a black box that is always full. "It's only an £80
fine for fly-tipping. I would have been better off doing
that." A council enforcement officer took photos of
the bin in January and issued an on the spot fine shortly
After refusing to pay the initial fine,
the man received a visit from the Council's 'bin police,'
who visited him wearing stab-proof vests. You can read
the whole story here: Daily
Firstly, someone at the Council should
have enough brains to realise that a family of five
produces quite a lot of rubbish in a fortnight, regardless
of how much they recycle.
Common sense: R.I.P.
Secondly, could this Council employee
not be given a more useful role in his community? Who
at the 'top' deems this a suitable way to use taxpayers'
Notice that a "council enforcement
officer took photos of the bin."
What a charming way to describe a jobsworth
with a camera. Of course these new over-the-top job
descriptions are part of the transition from relative
freedom to a police state.
As a reminder of what could happen
when it is a member of the public who wants to take
photographs, please read:
The latter is a personal account of an innocent bystander
who was beaten by police who then deleted the photographs
on his digital camera.
Perhaps we, the downtrodden, should invent masterful
titles for ourselves.
If I get the urge to photograph a policeman and he
takes offence, I should just say I'm a "police
standards enforcer," and I fear that the size of
the knot in his tie contravenes regulations.
Remember the days when you could approach
a policeman to ask for directions, confident that he
was your servant?
Of course, most police are decent enough
still and they and their families must also be institutionalised.
We need to fight this madness together.
