The Mark Thomas Privacy Product

I don't often agree with this egregious lefty twat, BUT:

Last I checked, I wasn't above the law. The same rules that apply to you also apply to me. And I'm a celebrity!

So it seems rather obvious that the people who often set these rules - our MPs - should also live by them.

But they don't - especially when it comes to how government treats our personal information. And it's time we put a stop to it.

Tell every would-be MP standing for election in your area that you'll no longer accept one rule for them and another for all of us.

All our children are now documented on the government's ContactPoint database, but MPs can get their children "shielded" for the sake of their privacy. What about our privacy?

Hundreds of MPs voted in favour of each and every one of us being fingerprinted for the ID database and having an ID card. Yet I'm sure I don't have to tell you that very few MPs have chosen to get one, even though they're now available to those who volunteer.

But what should we expect? After all, dozens of these same MPs voted to exempt themselves from the Freedom of Information Act, all in the name of their "privacy" of course, whilst passing laws that erode all of our privacy.

I've had enough of these hypocrites, haven't you? Join us in demanding that all candidates commit to scrapping the ID card scheme, and to defending our privacy - and that of our children - as fiercely as they defend their own:


Tell your local cunts what you think of them.

Any chance MT will be highlighting this issue on the hustings... maybe a well publicised stunt in front of a senior Labour MP seeking re-election?

Nah, thought not.

He'll wait till the Tories are in and then create merry hell, making out how its all the authoritarian-right's fault.

How many votes from sensible folk would this have gained pre-Good Friday Agreement?
