More Surveillance as if we needed it

LONDON – The UK already is the West's most surveyed nation – the average Londoner is secretly photographed an average 425 times a day – and officials now are launching a new Big Brother plan that will intensify the observation of civilians, according to a report from Joseph Farah's G2 Bulletin.

An anonymous building in a business park on the outskirts of Heathrow Airport is where the MI5 Security Service has begun monitoring all passengers arriving at or flying out of the facility's terminals from this week onwards.

There is no exemption for Americans starting their flights in the United States. They will find their details recorded and stored for a decade. No warning has been given of the secret surveillance to the public.

Other British airports will soon be linked to what MI5 agents insist "is essential to fight terrorism." This week it announced the threat is now "at the upper end of severe." It was a warning that an attack could be "imminent."

Keep in touch with the most important breaking news stories about critical developments around the globe with Joseph Farah's G2 Bulletin, the premium, online intelligence news source edited and published by the founder of WND.

The top-secret system near Heathrow uses over a thousand computers – and is tied-in to the airline industry's ticketing network.

The surveillance system makes split-second decisions about all passengers. Linked to CCTV cameras at the airports, it can make similar decisions about families and friends meeting incoming flights and determine if they are already listed on "security risk" databases.

These databases are stored in a massive monitoring center in the south of London. The building resembles a warehouse and appears no different from others bordering the River Thames. However it is enclosed by a security fence strengthened to resist a Baghdad-style suicide bomber.

From within the building comes the low hum of an air-conditioning system to cool the powerful computers, which are linked to the equally sophisticated building near Heathrow.

Known only as "Status Park Four," the glass-fronted building has taken two years to build. It has bomb-proof doors and windows and is further protected by ground sensors.

Its computers list all the information passengers are now required to give when booking a flight. This includes their home address, telephone numbers, e-mail address, passport details and the names of all family members.

Did any of you vote for this? Who still wants to vote Labour, Blue Labour or Yellow Labour?
