Back in June I posted about the climate cops that had scary undertones of the Thought Police's children wings in 1984. Of course some might say that such analysis is hysterical, but the reality is primary school children are being recruited by Councils for just these reasons, and in some cases they're even being paid rewards of up to £500 for it.
Southwark Council has admitted that it has 400 “environmental volunteers” aged from six to 80 trained to report into a special hotline and email address on "enviro-crimes". Yes, you did read that right, six year olds.
The Lib Dem leader of Southwark Council, Nick Stanton, told the South London Press the "programme is open to anyone over the age of six". Personally I have to say I agree with the Opposition Labour leader in Southwark who noted after making a comment about child labour that "[i]f this is an honest attempt to teach children about being responsible for their area, why has the general public not been made aware of it?"
Ironically of course, it is the Labour Party nationally who have been conmstantly undermining the Police by introducing ever more powers for civilians. Now we have a Lib Dem/Tory coalition using primary school children. Frankly I'm disgusted, what exactly is happening in this country? I wonder when we'll have our own Pavlil Morozov?
