Council spies police state Gestapo tactics



Council civil servants are only one step removed from Nazi Gestapo officers, but think exactly like the brown shirts that led to World War Two. The planning system is particularly prone to breeding workers who develop a power complex and seem to take delight in what the ordinary man in the street would term sadistic practices.





According to statistics reported in the media, Britain is rapidly becoming a Nazi like surveillance state using tactics that the Gestapo chief Heinrich Himmler would be proud to put his name to, and in turn Adolf Hitler would sing their praises.


It is of course no surprise to us where we have stories to tell that nobody would believe if they were not so well documented.





More than 1,000 covert surveillance operations are being launched every month to investigate petty offences such as dog fouling, under-age smoking and breaches of planning regulations.

Councils and other public bodies are using legislation designed to combat terrorism in order to spy on people, obtain their telephone records and find out who they are emailing. The full extent to which local authorities take advantage of new powers given to them by the Government came to light after a Dorset council admitted spying for more than two weeks on a family it suspected of lying on a school application form.

Privacy campaigners said figures obtained by The Daily Telegraph showed the extent to which Britain has become a "surveillance state", and likened the tactics employed by councils to the Stasi secret police in the former East Germany.

Last year, councils and government departments made 12,494 applications for "directed surveillance", according to figures released by the Office of the Surveillance Commissioner. This was almost double the number for the previous year.

In contrast, applications from police and other law enforcement agencies fell during the same period, to about 19,000, and one local government body admitted that councils and other public bodies would soon carry out more surveillance than the police.

Councils are increasingly using the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000 (Ripa) to investigate anything that can be classed as a criminal offence. The Home Office website describes the legislation as a tool for "preventing crime, including terrorism".

But it is used to spy on otherwise law-abiding people committing minor offences such as fly-tipping and failing to pick up dog mess and to gather evidence that can be used to instigate fines.

Keith Vaz, the Labour chairman of the Commons home affairs committee, said: "I am astonished that this very serious legislation is being misused in this way in cases which seem to be petty and vindictive. We have just completed an inquiry into the surveillance society and we have noted that there has been a huge growth in the use of these laws.

"The people responsible have some very serious questions to answer."

Gosport borough council in Hampshire said yesterday that it was currently using Ripa for an undercover investigation into dog fouling. Council officers equipped with digital cameras and binoculars are spying on dog walkers.

Chris Davis, the council's head of internal audit, said: "We have strategically placed members of our enforcement team to blend in with the natural environment and observe people walking dogs. They are using digital cameras to get hard evidence. Dog fouling is a real issue and in this case it is happening close to a leisure facility where children play."

Stoke-on-Trent city council said it used Ripa to investigate "illegal building work", while several councils have put cameras in tins and piles of twigs to catch fly-tippers.

When Ripa was passed in 2000, only nine organisations, such as the police and security services, were allowed to use it, but that number has risen to 792, including 474 councils.

In 2006, more than 1,000 applications per day were being made to use Ripa powers. The Act allows councils to authorise surveillance, obtain phone records and details of email traffic from personal computers (though not their contents) and obtain details of websites individuals are logging on to.

Councils cannot bug telephones, a power reserved for the police and security forces and which must be authorised by the Home Office.

As the Joyce family of Poole, Dorset, found, Ripa allows council staff to spy on people suspected of lying in school applications. Tim Joyce, 37, his girlfriend Jenny Paton, 39, and their three daughters were followed on school runs and watched at their home by Poole borough council to make sure they lived in the catchment area of the school their three-year-old daughter attends.

Miss Paton described the council's actions as "a grotesque invasion of privacy". Mr Joyce said: "It used to be that the Home Secretary had to talk to a judge to get surveillance through the police. Now it seems the world and his wife can carry out surveillance whenever they feel like it."

Gus Hosein, of the campaign group Privacy International, said: "We are on a par with China. The tactics of local authorities are more like the behaviour of the Stasi."

Hannibal Lecter psychopathic sadistic traits in civil servants



SADISM - is something difficult to understand for any well balanced individual, where a human being actually enjoys inflicting pain or mental suffering on another person. Who would do such a thing? A normal person is the opposite and enjoys helping people. Some civil servants get a chance to develop what might have been a minor personality disorder into a full blown Hannibal Lecter way of looking at people under their care - save for actually cooking and eating them.


In days gone by the mob dissatisfied with politicians performance, would tear them apart and eat them. Cannibalism may save the human race and planet earth, if thought of as livestock. Reducing the population also helps reduce greenhouse gases.




The stories on this page have hit the headlines, but rank extremely low on the scale of some of the vendettas that Wealden District Council have been running since at least 1984. These attacks on citizens, under their care in theory, were every bit as horrific in terms of mental torture, making the story of Anne Franks (diary) seem ordinary, except that the Jewish community were closer to actual physical harm rather than extreme mental torture from repeated attacks, in one case no less than 181 storm trooper site visits followed by Gestapo style litigation on trumped up evidence - so as to be able to use tax payer's money to inflict tremendous psychological and financial damage.


Is it not strange how councils have all this time and money to spy on citizens but no money to repair our potholed roads. They have all the money in the world to stormtroop sites that they are targeting for what we now know were illegal site visits, but no money or time to comply with their obligations under the Climate Change Act 2008.


Let's face it, our councils stink! Local thugs like this should be ashamed of themselves. Their defence is the same as used during the Nuremberg war crimes trials: "I was only doing what I was ordered to do." This was the same line used by guards that herded Jewish prisoners into the gas chambers to be murdered.










A mother condemned council workers as ‘rubbish Gestapo’ yesterday after they threatened her with a criminal record for putting a black sack out next to her full wheelie bin.

Two ‘rude and aggressive’ uniformed staff visited Sally Singh last month.

Ignoring her pleas to come back later because her son had been seriously ill all night, they handed her a £75 fine, threatening her with a court appearance and £2,500 penalty if she failed to pay.

‘I got a knock on the door and there were two environmental officers there. They were really rude and aggressive,’ said Mrs Singh, who lives with her GP husband Sanjeev, 37, and their two young children in Chelmsford, Essex.

‘I explained it wasn’t a good time because my son was sick but they didn’t care. They were like robots who just wanted to interrogate me about the rubbish.

‘They were like the rubbish Gestapo, like the SS.

‘They said I was flytipping, leaving rubbish on the pavement. They were talking like I’d dumped a mattress and a fridge outside.’

Mrs Singh said she was caught out because extra rubbish was routinely taken away by binmen at her former home, a few streets away. 

She added: ‘My husband and I are both professionals, we haven’t got criminal records, we pay our taxes and are respectable people.

‘They said if I didn’t pay the fine I would get a criminal conviction.’

The 34-year-old nurse said Chelmsford Borough Council also complained she had been putting her wheelie bin out too early for the weekly Friday rubbish collection.

When she admitted she always put it out the night before, as she is busy getting her children ready for school on collection days, they told her to ‘follow the rules’ and put it out on the day, or risk prosecution.

Her husband added: ‘People up and down the country put their bins out early but I think they are fining the middle classes because we are an easy target.’

The couple have paid the fine, reduced to £50 as they did so quickly, because they feared a criminal conviction could affect their careers.

The Singhs’s home was visited on February 25 following a complaint by another homeowner, a Chelmsford council spokesman said.

‘The bin was so full that the lid could not be shut and excess sacks were on the pavement beside it,’ he said.

Mrs Singh insists there was only one bag and says other locals sometimes leave rubbish out on the street near her home. But an officer checked through the bags on the street to check that the Singhs had left waste on the pavement, the council spokesman explained.

He added: ‘Given the circumstances, a fixed-penalty notice was issued for littering.’

On Wednesday it emerged families were being told to remove wheelie bins from streets within hours of binmen emptying them or face a £110 fine. Local Government Minister Bob Neill said at the time families were being ‘hammered’ with bigger fines than shoplifters. By Andrew Levy







BIRMINGHAM MAIL MAY 2014 - Council binmen 'like the Gestapo', former lord mayor claims

Council binmen have been accused of behaving “like the Gestapo” to stop families sneaking grass cuttings into their rubbish bags.

Senior Tory councillor John Lines claimed black sacks had been torn open by council workers looking for stray garden waste.

He said residents in his Bartley Green ward had been horrified to find ripped bags left by the roadside following the weekly collections.

Coun Lines said: “They (the council) have guys going round ripping open bags.

“If there is something they don’t like they put a sticker on it.

“It’s like the Gestapo going through our rubbish.

“No wonder people are so angry.

“When I approached them, the binmen even said they were ‘just obeying orders’.”

The former lord mayor’s claims marked the latest twist in the increasingly-explosive row over Birmingham’s garden tax.

Just 37,000 of the city’s 400,000 households have agreed to pay £35 to have their grass cuttings and other green waste collected.

The service used to be free and the Labour-run council has insisted the policy will not be reversed – despite fears of a voter backlash at next month’s local elections.

Large queues have built at Birmingham’s tips with householders preferring to dump their garden rubbish themselves rather than pay up.

And Yardley Liberal Democrat MP John Hemming also threatened the authority with court action unless staff collected bags of garden waste dumped across his constituency.

Birmingham bins boss Coun James McKay denied there had been a new clampdown following the introduction of the £35 charge.

He said: “We have never allowed garden waste to go in with the residual household waste.

“If binmen are aware that there is garden waste in the black bag they will not pick it up.

“This was the case when Coun Lines and the Conservatives ran the council and is the same now.”

Adolf Hitler and chum Heinrich Himmler  [Allegedly, Adolf Hitler did not die in that bunker incident C.1949.  Apparently, he was fired into England, strapped to a V1 rocket, leaving behind his false teeth.  He parachuted into the Wealden District that night hoping to meet some deviants, who'd arranged a new identity for their fallen comrade.  Apparently, he landed in Crowborough, shaved off his moustache and was mistaken for a council official, whereupon he infiltrated the ranks of the local council and trained them how to use his terror tactics to control the peasant civilians] There is a pecking order in any administration whether in Nazi Germany, a British Government or a local council. Parallels may be drawn in any situation. You may find it amusing to look at your administration and equate any present day role with the Nazi regime equivalent from 1939 onwards.

The SS and SA were the special forces used for political purposes. It will not be long before councils in Britain are run by civil servants who think like Gestapo officers. They might as well cut out the pretence and wear brown shirts and long black boots. Heil Hitler!
