Fancy a bit of terrorism? Well, here are a few sayings linked to terrorism: Bomb, Osma Bin Laden, al-Qaeda, nitrogen fertiliser, plutonium, dirty bomb, suicide bomber, dynamite and car bomb. That little line up of terrorist tools should, by now, be keeping a load of bods in half a dozen back offices tucked away in MI6, MI5 and other Government snooping departments in a frenzy of activity for an hour or so.
Why should anyone want to mention all these links to terrorism? The reason, my little spied on friends, is down to Government plans to snoop on literally every e-mail sent, every telephone call made and every Internet session on a database - there will be no secrets kept from 'Big Ears' Brown and his Orwellian army of Government curtain twitchers.
The Home Office is proposing the installation of "black boxes" in telephone exchanges to copy all telephone and web data that passes through them, which will then be stored on a massive central database - there will be no escape for anyone who uses the telephone or Internet, literally everything will be watched, recorded and monitored. We know there are already systems in place which flag up key words and phrases used in telephone conversations and e-mails, but this system will be something else.
Yet once again this massive prying project is being proposed as a means of preventing terrorist attacks, but it will also be very convenient for the Government to be able to build quite detailed files on each and every one of us - it will probably know more about our lives and activities than members of our own families. Hence the use of the words above.
If the Government wants to pry on our affairs in this way , and we know that such sensitive words as those above will set alarm bells ringing all over the place in their offices, lets give them something for our taxpayers money. If every e-mail, telephone call, new upload on web-sites and any other method of electronic communication has one or more of those words in them, or other phrases used in terrorist acts, then the people would have the opportunity to strike back and hit this snoopers charter where it hurts, their systems would be massively overloaded and would most probably crash. If this was done by literally everyone on a daily basis they would never be able to cope - we could swamp them. It's time for a little urban terrorism.
