When George Orwell wrote 1984, he probably never imagined that society would
actually become that oppressive. Yet in some nations of the world it has. In fact, in
nations such as the U.K., "Big Brother" controls have now been implemented that
are so bizarre that Orwell could not have possibly envisioned them during the time in
which he lived. The truth is that the U.K. has become a society run by elitist control
freaks. The most intimate and personal details of the lives of millions of people in the
U.K. are tightly monitored and controlled by a ruthless technocracy that would have been
unimaginable just a few decades ago. The following are 20 signs that the U.K. has now
become the most oppressive Big Brother society on earth.....
#1) The U.K. has more surveillance cameras per citizen than anywhere else in the world. In
to one estimate, there are 4.8 million video cameras constantly watching every move
citizens make. abbro-ukbigbro1
#2) Government education inspectors in the U.K. have announced that the 40,000 parents who
homeschool their own children must
undergo criminal records checks.
#3) U.K. authorities are now admitting that
every phone call, text message, email and website visit made by private citizens will
be stored for one year and will be available for monitoring by government agencies.
#4) Officials in the U.K. have spent two years and massive amounts of money on a study
they claim proves that
10-pin bowling is a health and safety hazard and should be banned.

prove that they are not pedophiles before they are allowed to accompany their children
to school Christmas carol events.

government has the power to impose nationwide mandatory swine flu vaccinations under the
Civil Contingencies Act of 2004.
#7) Thousands of "dysfunctional" families in the U.K. are
being subjected to intensive 24-hour surveillance to make sure that their children
attend school, go to bed on time and eat proper meals. About 2,000 families have already
gone through these "Family
Intervention Projects", and the U.K. government plans to increase the scope of
this program to 20,000 more families over the next two years.
#8) A controversial new proposal in the U.K. would force political
parties to make Parliament less
white, male, middle-class and heterosexual.

most intimate details of their childs personal, behavioral and eating habits.

"environmentally friendly" whether they like it or not. Under a new government
plan, energy experts in the U.K. are
going to visit every home in the country in order to "help them go green".
As part of "The Great British Refurb", teams of "energy advisers" will
go "house by house, street by street" to tell people what they must do in order
to become eco-friendly.

with garbage, with huge fines imposed on those who do not dispose of their trash in
the prescribed manner.

individual carbon allowances for each citizen will be the most effective way of
meeting the targets for cutting greenhouse gas emissions.
#14) In an almost inconceivable move, personal checks are to be abolished under
controversial plans being drawn up by U.K. bankers.

to photograph the police in the U.K.

become a compulsory subject in all state primary schools.
#17) The U.K. government is being forced by the European Commission to eliminate
exemptions that allow churches to
refuse to employ homosexual staff.
#18) Parents in the U.K. are
about to lose the right to withdraw their child from sex education classes when the
child reaches 15 years of age.
#19) One mother in the U.K. was trailed by a policeman and formally warned by a local

#20) The U.K. is in the process of implementing a "National
Identity Card" which will be able to hold fifty different categories of
information on each U.K. citizen, including digital facial scans, digital iris scans and
up to 10 fingerprints. (futurestorm,
