UK Police Using Number Plate Cameras to Track Down People Visiting Pubs in Neighboring Areas

Police in North Yorkshire are using number plate recognition cameras to track down people violating lockdown rules by leaving their area to visit a pub in a neighboring area with less severe restrictions.

Under the UK’s current lockdown rules, all pubs and restaurants located in tier 3 regions are closed, but pubs in tier 2 areas can remain open if they serve “substantial meals.”

This has prompted some people who live in tier 3 areas to drive to tier 2 areas nearby so they can enjoy a pint.

However, it has now been revealed that authorities are using the region’s Automatic Number Plate Recognition to track down COVID dissidents who leave their region via car.

“It is neither necessary or acceptable to leave a Tier 3 area and enter a lower tier area for a day trip or to visit a pub or restaurant for a meal,” said North Yorkshire Police’s Superintendent Mike Walker.

“Please also be reminded that your tier restrictions travel with you and police can take enforcement action against you, if you should breach those restrictions,” he added.

Fines for those found flouting the rules could eventually rise to £6,400.

Big Brother Watch director Silkie Carlo said the measures were further evidence of the UK’s slide into a “totalitarian” state.

“This is not policing by consent. There’s no law prohibiting people from travelling between tiers, and in fact not even a specific law underpinning the mass surveillance system that is ANPR. We’re now living in a growing surveillance state and a civil liberties landslide,” she said.

As we previously highlighted, during the first lockdown police in Derbyshire bragged about how they were using surveillance drones to spy on dog walkers and hikers in remote countryside, claiming that some were venturing too far from where they lived.

As we reported earlier, police are also entering pubs to harass customers and demanding they leave after finishing their meals, preventing them from ordering more drinks.

UK Authorities Could Force People to Take Selfie Every Day to ‘Prove’ They’re Self-Isolating

Failure to comply would result in police visit.

UK authorities are considering a new measure that would force people to send selfies every day to prove they’re self-isolating, photos which would then be cross-referenced using GPS data and facial-recognition software.

The Sunday Times reports that COVID lockdown officials are looking to mirror policies introduced in New Zealand, where all new arrivals to the country are forced to check in to a ‘quarantine hotel’ at the airport for a period of 2 weeks.

Another potential enforcement measure would be to copy Poland’s so-called “enhanced monitoring” system for those who are supposed to be self-isolating.

“Each person is contacted once a day and told to send a photograph of themselves at the location where they are confined,” states the report. “These are cross-referenced using GPS data and facial-recognition software. Those who fail to comply within 20 minutes receive a visit from police.”

It is not known whether the new measure would also apply to UK citizens returning to their own country.

The new policies are being considered in the name of preventing new ‘mutant’ strains of COVID-19 from spreading in the UK.

“Concerns that the pandemic response has been accompanied by a tendency towards China-style surveillance won’t be assuaged by these plans to require a digital ‘minder’ in the room at all times,” writes Conor Chaplin.

“If these variants are to be treated with such extreme caution now, for fear that the vaccines provide no immunity to them, how will normal travel ever resume, given that new strains are bound to keep emerging and vaccines can only be developed and manufactured so quickly?”

As we previously highlighted, the UK’s third national lockdown is being much more vigorously enforced, with police paying home visits to alleged lockdown flouters while also arresting people for sitting on benches.

Germany Set to Detain COVID Rulebreakers in Refugee Camps

AfD MP says authorities have been “reading too much Orwell.”

COVID lockdown rulebreakers in Germany will be arrested and detained in refugee camps located across the country, it has been revealed.

We first highlighted the story on Friday, citing reports that people who repeatedly flout the rules will be held in a ‘detention camp’ in Dresden.

Now authorities in numerous different areas have outlined where they will incarcerate those who break lockdown laws or refuse to self-isolate after catching COVID.

Germany has numerous refugee camps located throughout the country as a result of Angela Merkel’s disastrous move to let in millions of migrants from 2015 onwards.

Now areas of some of them are being repurposed to house dissidents who refuse to obey coronavirus lockdown laws.

“The eastern state of Saxony has confirmed plans to hold quarantine-flouters in a fenced-off section of a refugee camp set to be build next week,” reports the Daily Mail.

AfD MP Joana Cotar reacted to the plan by accusing authorities of “reading too much Orwell.” The state asserts it has the right to detain those who break quarantine under the Disease Protection Act.

Authorities in Brandenburg will also use a section of a refugee camp to intern COVID-deniers, while Schleswig-Holstein will lock them up in an area of a juvenile detention center.

Angela Merkel is reportedly set to announce a new “mega-lockdown” in Germany that will include shutting down all public transport.

Coronavirus

French Workers Angrily Reject Social Distancing ‘Collars’

An “attack on individual liberty”

Published

on

Factory workers in France have labeled social distancing ‘dog collars’ as an “attack on individual liberty” as employers are trying to make them wear the devices to enforce restrictions while working.

The alarm devices emit a noise and light up if workers get closer than two metres together, but have been slammed by a worker’s union for “infantilising” employees.

The alarms are scheduled to be introduced by hygiene company Essity, which wants it’s factory workers to wear them around their necks.

The CFDT union told AFP that it is “a system comparable to ones that try to dissuade dogs from barking.”

Christine Duguet, a union representative from the CFDT, suggested that the devices will “finish in the rubbish bins or stay in a cupboard,” adding “This is complete nonsense.”

Duguet also expressed concerns that the company would attempt to keep the system in place as a ‘security measure’ even after the pandemic ends.

The device is manufactured by a Belgian company called Phi Data, which also offers a similar device that can be activated by the wearer if they feel someone comes too close to them.

Imagine that hell. Karens everywhere emitting bleeping blaring alarms if you dare to walk past them on the street.

Other similar devices have been developed by tech companies and researchers seeking to cash in on the pandemic panic:

There are also scores of videos on YouTube detailing how to make DIY versions of the devices:

This is not normal. What has happened to humans?

Where does this end up? Electronic collars that administer a shock if you break distancing restrictions?

Aside from the imprisonment of everyone inside pods, this weird technology is being embraced with the social distancing justification.

Amazon is reported to have experimented with such technology in their warehouses:

As we highlighted back in October, Hitachi has developed similar technology, which includes cartoon fish swimming around inside a bubble. When a person violates social distancing, the fish escape.

The promo video brags that the technology “can even be deployed inside elevators” and Hitachi is “hoping to get the technology commercialized quickly.”

Given that numerous prominent people are insisting that social distancing and other coronavirus restrictions are here to say, it’s perfectly feasible to imagine a near future in which this technology is widely adopted.

China is already linking coronavirus rules to its onerous social credit score system, in addition to using AI to discipline its slave labor workforce, so the idea that people could be publicly shamed or punished for getting too close to others is a very real possibility.
