Police stop and quiz powers - Ten things to say
The thing that seriously annoys me about society in 2007 is that Bliar has been gradually turning the UK into a fascist police state and no one seems bothered about it. If anything is killing privacy and freedom in this country it's the populations level of apathy to what's going on around them.
Reading this article about the government's proposed 'Stop and quiz powers' made me wonder what the best things to say if asked about your movements would be. After all, I always encourage people to fight for privacy and freedom, because once it's lost it's a hell of a lot more difficult to get it back.
The proposal, allowing police to ask people about their identity and movement, is among measures being considered by Home Secretary John Reid, so if you get stopped, here's a range of reasons as to where you're going
- I'm looking for UFOs. Have you received any reports of sightings around here?
- I dropped my contact lens and I'm just looking for it.
- I left my bomb here somewhere. It's only got a 5 minute fuse so I need to find it within 4 minutes.
- Ahh. I'm glad you asked me that question. I'm completely befuddled and have no idea where I am, where I'm going or who I am.
- Do You Know The Way To San Jose
- I like wandering/driving around aimlessly late at night. Why? Do I need a destination?
- I don't know where I'm heading? Why? Do you have any recommendations?
- Is This The Way To Amirillo
- I'm trying to avoid heading in the direction of New Labour's police state, but it appears that I've already arrived.
- Why do you find the need to ask me? Has anything interesting happened around here? Did I miss anything?
