UK: 1,043 laws that will let the state in your home

UK: 1,043 laws that will let the state in your home

Daily Mail
July 20, 2008

The march of the Big Brother state under Labour was highlighted last night as it was revealed that there are now 1,043 laws that give the authorities the power to enter a home or business.

Nearly half have been introduced since Labour came to power 11 years ago. They include the right to:

• Invade your home to see if your pot plants have pests or do not have a ’plant passport’ (Plant Health England Order 2005).

Survey your home and garden to see if your hedge is too high (Anti-Social Behaviour Act 2003).

• Check that accommodation given to asylum seekers is not being lived in by non-asylum seekers (Immigration and Asylum Act 1999).

Raid a house to check if unlicensed gambling is taking place (Gambling Act 2005 Inspection Regulations 2007).

Seize fridges without the correct energy rating (Energy Information Household Refrigerators and Freezers Regulations 2004).

The rise in clipboard-wielding state inspectors flies in the face of repeated pledges by Ministers to curb the power of bureaucrats.

The full extent of the state’s ’powers of entry’ is revealed in documents slipped out quietly by the Government last week.

The information was posted on the Home Office website, but in a highly unusual move, the computer file was locked to prevent it being copied or printed. A secret Home Office password was required to access the file.

A Home Office spokeswoman denied the restrictions were an attempt to stop the state’s powers being circulated more widely.

She claimed it was a ’mistake’ and the file would be unlocked tomorrow.

Some 420 new powers of entry are the product of laws introduced since 1997. A further 16 are in laws due to be approved by Parliament in the next few weeks.

A recent study by the Centre for Policy Studies think-tank warned that the ’proliferation and variety’ of such laws mean householders can no longer ’realistically be aware’ of their rights and legal obligations.

Gordon Brown last year announced a review of ’powers of entry’ laws and said they would be subjected to a ’liberty test’ to stop abuses by the state.

However, new powers set to be approved by Parliament include inspecting for non-human genetic material, for looted cultural property from Iraq and for ’undeclared’ carbon dioxide, as well as enforcing bin tax.

Town hall ’bin police’ already have the right to enter homes, take photographs, seize contents of bins, and ’investigate as required’.

Householders can be fined up to £5,000 if they refuse entry or ’obstruct’ an official.

Shadow Communities Secretary Eric Pickles said: ’Day by day under Labour, the rights and liberties of law-abiding citizens are being eroded.’

 



UK To Install Blood Detection Cameras

Roadside cameras that detect BLOOD will catch lone drivers who abuse car-sharing lanes

Motorists will be targeted by a new generation of road cameras which work out how many people are in a car by measuring the amount of bodily fluid it contains.

The latest snooping device on the nation’s roads aims to penalise lone drivers who abuse car-sharing lanes, and is part of a Government effort to combat congestion at busy times.

The cameras work by sending an infrared beam through the windscreen of vehicles which detects the unique make-up of blood and water content in human skin.

The system’s inventors believe it will catch out motorists who try to fool existing CCTV road cameras by placing mannequins in passenger seats or fixing photographs to windscreens.

Police in retreat after public backlash over their demands for a DNA database

Daily Mail
February 25, 2008

Police were in retreat last night after a public backlash over plans to take the DNA of people who drop litter or fail to wear a seatbelt.

Opposition was also hardening against a universal UK database which would create a “nation of suspects”.

But there were growing calls to extend the current register of 4.5million samples in other ways.

Former Home Secretary David Blunkett said more people should be encouraged to volunteer their DNA, while the Tories said there should be a trawl for any serious criminals not already logged.
