Another UK government plan that has Orwell snickering and spinning in his grave. Is this how bad things have become? Instead of viewing children as the future saviors of our society they view them as a potential threat to be dealt with. Where can you find a child that has 'terrorist tendencies'? Allow me to educate you pathetic pill-popping manic depressive bureaucrats. You'll never find a child that is a terrorist, terrorists are shaped by their environment and by their mentors. It takes many years for a child to build his or her own identity and many years more for their perception of the world to develop. Watching a bunch of babies in their crib isn't going to give anyone any inkling about their future role in society. Terrorists are made and not born. If they really cared about reducing the number of terrorists in the world then they would leave the Middle East and put and end to their covert assassinations and bombing campaigns. Instead of that they are doubling down in the Middle East and forcing people who love children to scrutinize their every action. I am sure that more legislation will emerge to propagandize children into embracing mainstream politics and mainstream society. The parents themselves who are under the watchful eye of this government and will not stand up to this and with their silence permit their children to be monitored and cataloged like cattle.
The UK Telegraph unveils this disgusting plan to spy on kids:
Nursery school staff and registered childminders must report toddlers at risk of becoming terrorists, under counter-terrorism measures proposed by the Government.
The directive is contained in a 39-page consultation document issued by the Home Office in a bid to bolster its Prevent anti-terrorism plan.
Critics said the idea was “unworkable” and “heavy-handed”, and accused the Government of treating teachers and carers as “spies”.
The document accompanies the Counter-Terrorism and Security Bill, currently before parliament. It identifies nurseries and early years childcare providers, along with schools and universities, as having a duty “to prevent people being drawn into terrorism”.
The consultation paper adds: “Senior management and governors should make sure that staff have training that gives them the knowledge and confidence to identify children at risk of being drawn into terrorism and challenge extremist ideas which can be used to legitimise terrorism and are shared by terrorist groups.
Isabella Sankey, the policy director at human rights body Liberty, said: “Turning our teachers and childminders into an army of involuntary spies will not stop the terrorist threat.
“Far from bringing those at the margins back into mainstream society, it will sow seeds of mistrust, division and alienation from an early age.
