Make it 2m - sign before it's too late


The deadline for adding your name to the e-petition against road pricing and tracking on the Number 10 website is fast approaching. Sign here NOW to make your voice heard!

Even if you do favour making motorists pay more in tax (which I don't), this scheme will allow the State to track every car journey WE make - whether you are collecting little Megan from nursery, going to Waitrose for the week's groceries or visiting your mistress, the STATE WILL KNOW ABOUT IT. This is yet another attack on our civil liberties by this increasingly authoritarian/need-to-know Socialist regime.

But bear in mind that anyone who signs the petition can expect to receive an email from Tony Bliar _ at least according to the Sundays yesterday, Downing Street are harvesting these emails for future use. I think we need a petition to stop them!

A cleaver marketing ploy by NuLab. Yes, David, an e-petion would be a good idea. Want to start one? Still, it would be truly historic and powerful if the current e-p reached 2m!

Wouldn't it be nice to have a statement from Dave about road pricing?

I have posted on the WebCameron open blog today (the first day of a new batch for voting) regarding road pricing. Take a look here.

Justin, there is a bigger picture here.

What do you make of this and the Booker story to which it links?

So the government have the technology to track an ordinary motorist going about (in the majority of cases)legitimate business. But, has managed to loose thousands of illegal immigrants who probably end up costing this country more than the revenue that would be received from this ludicrous scheme. The technology and time spent on this might be better used tracking and deporting these people rather than further hounding the innocent motorist!

David Allen said...

Arthurian Legend _ so we can breathe a sigh of relief? (at least for the time being) because UK would be in breach of EU rules if it tried to roll out a road-pricing scheme now because the only EU-approved technology for such a scheme is not yet available and isn't likely to be any time soon?

As long as this site doesn't become political, you may carry on as you are.

Justin Hinchcliffe said...

That's very gracious of you, Mr Ireland.

I've already signed it, just checked and the total is currently 1,700,568 with just a few hours to go before the deadline. But will it make the slightest difference?

I never signed the petition _ but, for those who did, was there a proper Data protection notice? Were you asked to opt-in to receive these emails from Tony? Data users are not allowed to plead 'implied consent'. I wouldn't put it past the accident-prone drones at No.10 to forget to bother about the data Protection Act etc. _ if so, I hope someone reports them to the Data Protection Commissioner.
