"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

System Fail: SNAFU

HERE is a classic example of our Westminster Regional Assembly doing what it does best: screwing up the people of Britain.

ECRIS (the European Criminal Records Information System) is due to be formally implemented across the EU later this month and the UK, an enthusiastic participant, has been placed at a gross disadvantage because of government insistence on proving what good little Europeans they are.

ALL criminal records will be shared via an enormous database covering the twenty-seven EU member states. Normally, this wouldn't be such a bad idea since it implies a degree of protection against criminals migrating between countries but, due to the UK's penchant for micro-logging every aspect of our lives, it discriminates wildly against the British.

Other member states either don't log minor convictions & fines or wipe the record clean when they're spent so they won't appear on ECRIS. Not so in the UK where the effect will be to severely hamper the job prospects of some Britons and favour Europeans instead.
Critics say the system is over-simplified and means that a £10 fine for stealing a traffic cone as a student prank in the UK would come up as a conviction for theft, regardless of the seriousness of the offence.

The same offence in many other EU countries would not appear at all on an ECRIS check.
The private limited company ACPO, ever keen to widen its net and increase its profits, has a hand in it since it set up the UK Central Authority for the Exchange of Criminal Records.

The British government is actively working against the interests of the British people and, as such, we owe them no allegiance whatsoever. The contract is void.



  1. How can they justify the expense of all this utter garbage?

  2. You're right, OR - all this is costing us a fortune. I've long said we're paying for our own demise via excessive taxation. The system is utterly corrupted.
