Fascist in Chief Big Brother David Cameron wants the option to shut down social media (wanna bet cell phones too like they did in the Bay Area on the BART Today?) in order to block “pre-crime” communication.This of course begs the question – how will that determination be made? Clearly it cannot be a political agent. Will a warrant be secured? What are the conditions for “pre-criminality”?
Mr. Cameron was not shy of thorny rights issues today. When commenting on the use of Flickr postings of suspected looters by the Met, Cameron said:
“No phoney human rights concerns about publishing photos will get in the way of bringing these criminals to justice,” he added.
Okaaaaaaaaaay. And who is the arbiter of phoney Mr. Cameron?
