24/7 CCTV Surrveillance in family homes

Monday, 3 August 2009

The Express reports a sinister programme instituted by none other than raving commie lunatic Ed Balls.
THOUSANDS of the worst families in England are to be put in “sin bins” in a bid to change their bad behaviour, Ed Balls announced yesterday.

The Children’s Secretary set out £400million plans to put 20,000 problem families under 24-hour CCTV super-vision in their own homes.

They will be monitored to ensure that children attend school, go to bed on time and eat proper meals.
The nightmare of 1984 has arrived, courtesy of glassy-eyed Fabian, Ed Balls. No doubt, these families will face censure for "impure" thoughts when they express themselves to their families and friends.
Private security guards will also be sent round to carry out home checks, while parents will be given help to combat drug and alcohol addiction.
Can we assume that these "security guards" will be CRB checked? Has Balls been CRB checked?
Around 2,000 families have gone through these Family Intervention Projects so far.

But ministers want to target 20,000 more in the next two years, with each costing between £5,000 and £20,000 – a potential total bill of £400million.
Ministers hope the move will reduce the number of youngsters who get drawn into crime because of their chaotic family lives, as portrayed in Channel 4 comedy drama Shameless.
Put more police on the streets, get rid of the tick-box targets culture, health and safety bolleaux, risk assessments and send more people to prison. That's all you need to do to stop crime, you power-crazed freak.
Sin bin projects operate in half of council areas already but Mr Balls wants every local authority to fund them.

He said: “This is pretty tough and non-negotiable support for families to get to the root of the problem. There should be Family Intervention Projects in every local authority area because every area has families that need support.”
That's not "support", that's control. Black is white, freedom is slavery.
But Shadow Home Secretary Chris Grayling said: “This is all much too little, much too late.
The Tories, will be expanding this evil programme?

I doubt it. The quote isn't a very good one, but the bit after it effectively says that this is a last throw of the dice.

My interpretation isn't that Chris Grayling wants more of this — he was saying that any such initiative is "too little, too late" for the Labour Government to bother to start doing something about the issue itself.

Always be careful of selective or limited quoting in newspapers.

For example, the BBC often permit only a one-word response from Shadow Ministers, which you will have heard on their news reports: "The Shadow {whatever} described the proposal as {one-word}."

Yes? It's because they allow only one word, and even that is exclusively so that they can fulfill their legal obligation to offer some form of right-of-reply.

Corrupt? Yes; but that's the BBC all the way through.

Much of the rest of the media tend to be little better, in practice.

I can only assume that Labour are deliberately trying to lose badly at the next general election?

They'll never get away with it. I see a classic u-turn approaching.

I've been looking for Grayling's full quote at Con Home without success but I see I've been beaten to it now by John and Anon. Balls 'policy' is abysmal but the Cons would never go for it and Labour won't be around to implement it.

It seems it may not matter even if the answer is 'Yes' ...

Anon, GV and John, I take your point that the quote isn't a good one but in this foetid political environment, I'm disinclined to give politicos the benefit of the doubt and will watch that space.

CB, amazingly, 2,000 families already have this CCTV.

Dan, ditto!

And who decides whether a home has a CCTV camera put into it?

And what happens if the householder does not want CCTV prying into their every move?
