So what do you make of this new Police database? It is going to contain the details of 15,000,000 British Citizens. We're told that only 9,000,000 people in the UK have criminal records.
I'm sorry but I find those figures ridiculous. How the fuck can there be 9 million people in the UK with criminal records. Does that include speeding in a car? What do they deem to be a criminal record? They are trying to tell us that roughly 1 in 6 are criminals. I can't believe that figure. Maybe they're all Romanian Gypsies or something. I don't know how many criminals you know, but I am failing to think of any!
If they're are 9 million criminals in the UK, then prison must be a deterrent, because there are only around 95,000 in jail in the UK and I make that about 1%. So then in other words there must be 99 criminals on the streets for everyone that's in the clink. I don't think so. So what have the other 6 million done that are going to be on the database? Farted in a pubic place and been caught on smelly vision CCTV? Scratched their balls in public? Worn tight leggings in public, (known as mumbling pants in Scotland because you can see their lips move)? Does the database even operate in Scotland as our legal system id different from England?
No, in my opinion, it is just another way to extend state control over the citizens of this country, in much the same way as the 'terrorism' threat has been used to restrict the freedoms of individuals. We are my friends moving towards a police state which will one day make some of the Arab states look mild.
