The government’s public consultation on whether they go ahead with Digital ID closes 1st March. You didn’t know?
If you go to the UK government’s website www.gov.uk and look under ‘consultations, you will probably have missed the opportunity to contribute to the debate by now on the government’s consultation on draft legislation to support identity verification. But, you can still make your views and concerns known to your member of parliament, who gets to vote on such potential legislation, supposedly on your behalf. You after all, have the power to remove your MP from power, and they know it. But do we impress this on our representatives sufficiently?
A question of identity … and whether and how we should prove it
Your identity is unique. It is sacred. Sacrosanct. In these British Isles, we have always resisted identity papers and identity cards, as used on the continent of Europe, considering the very idea to be an affront to our natural existence and hard won freedoms, maintaining we do not need to prove ourselves. We are. That’s it. We actually have natural inalienable rights that no person or entity can take from us by any right, implicit or implied or tacitly.
And yet, our government is testing our resolve, but only offering a narrow window of opportunity to respond to their token gesture of apparent right of engagement. But are we armed with all the facts in a fair and fully disclosed transparent way? I fear not. The integrity of our identity however, is being challenged. In fact, the need to ‘prove’ who we are is being tested quite thoroughly and beyond all reasonable expectations now.
Stepping stones to disempowerment
Whether our political representatives realise it or otherwise, what is being asked of us, is by degrees, eroding our autonomy and even our right to exist as a free entity. The precursor to the WEF’s strategy of connected government was legislation 6 years ago called The Digital Economy Act which was to give us, as the UK Parliamentary Secretary for the Cabinet Office, Alex Burghart MP puts it … “flexibility to introduce new data sharing gateways to support the delivery of key services …”
The powers that be use stepping stones to realise their ambitions, which includes supposedly innocuous legislation taken individually, but when you connect the dots, it all adds up to a steppingstone arrangement facilitating ease of access to data gateways into all our lives and the control thereof. It is mission creep. It is a well used strategy. Rather like the boiling frog example where the frog does not know it is being boiled whilst the temperature is turned up only by degrees it does not realise or feel. The system now being foisted upon us, is testing our resilience as free and sovereign living men and women. I for one, would rather not be that naïve frog.
The downside possibilities
The danger is that these apparent moves for efficiency’s sake, and supposedly to make things easier for us, has the potential to work against us for the following reasons …
- Sharing of personal data used and abused by unauthorised entities, whether government or otherwise, such as individuals and contractor agencies working on contract for government.
- Hacking or unauthorised interception of our data by persons and artificial intelligence (AI) that could potentially use our data for profit, or false identity, or criminal activities.
- Corporate and supposed humanitarian agencies acting through ‘mission creep’ where through incremental access over time, and by pulling ‘jigsaw’ data pieces garnered from disparate sources related to our identity, a more powerful control over our access to financial services such as finance, banking, or our medical records, our day-to-day life tracking through the voluntary apps we use on our mobiles etc, can be amalgamated into useful bigger picture data to predict our responses, and restrict our movements and actions.
- Control over voting rights
- Control over what we can purchase
- Control over our physical movements (whether by foot or by car, as in ’15 minute cities’)
- Gateway control over all aspects of our lives is facilitated through centralised and aggregated data mining technology from a variety of sources that we opt into and are also unaware of and therefore do not give our permissions to.
The Chinese model for the UK?
China utilises the social credit score system through technologies installed on mobile phones to regulate and control access to all aspects of life. The model being proffered by all our WEF led governments is modelled on precisely this Chinese model. This is Digital ID fully realised and vaunted by Klaus Schwab and his cronies who dare to presume to know what is best for our populations with their ‘4th Industrial Revolution’ and technocratic society, The Internet of Things (IoT) and all things alien to the natural condition or Nature.
What is being considered most seriously now is the biggest threat to not only our freedoms, our liberty and ability to choose freely the life we wish to lead. Not only is it a threat to the free world that the world has ever seen since the Second World War. But this is a war on humanity and all life, using quiet weapons for a very quiet war. So quiet and surreptitious, you wouldn’t even know there is an enemy at the door, or even within.
Connectivity of technologies, data and databases
This is very much about the connectivity of clever technologies and databases that represent a high risk to our integrity and liberty. The growing use of car registration reading technology by the police and through other means, all can so easily be used against our natural freedom of movement and choice of what we do and how we choose to live. And once we have acquiesced to such power hungry centralised policies, these is less purchase power on rolling such policies and plans back. It would largely be too late to act once we have either given our explicit permission, or even by implication, kept quiet. Tacit consent is all they feel they need to carry out their disempowering plans, while all the while selling the benefits, ignoring the downside and pretending all this is in our best interests.
It is a major hoodwinking and plays on our natural persuasions to trust authority who many have been brought up to believe are acting in our best interests. Little deep diving is done to see the other side to this rosy picture, which would reveal a 180 degree alternate reality.
Unlikely stooges of Hague & Blair
Two of our past Prime Ministers have recently joined forces to do the media rounds and promote this thing called Digital ID or Digital Identity. What is the connection between these two supposed disparate parrots? They both are signed-up members of the corporate entity promoting Digital ID, and who ultimately benefits from it. That entity is known as the WEF .. the World Economic Forum, established by a German engineer called Klaus Schwab back in the 1970’s. In fact, most all the well known politicians and even royalty are members of this wayward organisation that openly seeks to disempower the world’s population. Examples of this are through their adverts seen in our cities boasting .. ‘You will own nothing, and be happy’. Really? Well, of the people end up owning nothing, then who gains from this capital reorganisation? The very people putting this nonsense out, that’s who.
If only these mouthpieces acting on behalf of the WEF would be a little more transparent and honest about who’s interests they represent and who benefits from these stepping stone mission creep creepy ideas, then perhaps we would all have a better understanding of what is being planned for us all, without our involvement. And when they defer to us at all these days, it is obliging the public with a very narrow window of opportunity to have our say and give feedback on these madcap ideas.
Window of opportunity
Talking of which, the government in their eternal wisdom, have ‘allowed’ us to respond to this Digital ID ‘proposal’ by giving us all access to a UK governmental (and it is mental) online survey. The problem with this is that the options are limited and not designed for a full and proper response. No, the best way to respond to this pernicious ID idea is to write to our so called political representatives, ideally by email now, to tell them what we really think. However, the closing date for receiving replies to this survey is Wednesday 1st March.
Beyond this date, look out for the Government Digital Service who are tasked with disseminating information on the topic and no doubt what the government have decided, with or without your awareness or feedback.
If they deem insufficient pushback to their cunning plan, then they institute the crazy disempowering idea into law by the end of this year of 2023. And even if this unlawful law is written into the statute books, and is acknowledged by the people as being unfair and unlawful, it will make it so much harder to derail it and maintain control over our lives, as those national and local governmental underlings will be blocking our rights, believing this new law to be lawful, with no thought of our constitutional rights and higher laws, neither International Law, both of which trump any form of legislation, which there seems little education on, whether in the public domain or in relation to those tasked to enforce such monstrous legislation.
The constant propaganda and dis-service the mainstream media either churns out or ignores totally does not help people to realise what is at stake and how our lives are being railroaded down what can only be called a fascist dictatorship. It could however also be called a kleptocracy, as all our rights and possessions are being taken away, have we not noticed?
What you can do
Write to your MP to express your concerns having noted the above, and my advice is to give a very clear NO to the whole idea of digital ID. Perhaps suggest you will be reconsidering your support for your MP if they support this erroneous and highly dangerous plan. For it undermines all our identities, which ever pronouns of ways we currently enjoy. This year of 2023 will be the deciding year on your liberty. How much do you value it? This could be your last chance to freely express yourself, and use your power, whilst you still have any.
