REVEALED: POLICS DATABANK ON THOUSANDS OF PROTESTERS

But dont you dare take a photograph of them! Just pray Stalin or Hitler doesnt come to power in the next few years, because they will have a wonderful police database to lock up all the possible resisters. Or that the database gets privatised …then it can be made accessible to employers…Quis custodiet ipsos custodies? Errr…Nobody.

This is the text linked to the video in the previous post. Really cheerful Saturday morning!

Honestly, I’m not making this up. Today Cambridgeshire…tomorrow your incorrectly filled wheelie bins…The cops are too busy watching protesters to catch burglars, so theyre training up binmen. Comic Relief stunt?
