Of course the press does not actually say that. But that is what the Daily Backstabbers article on the release of news that a Secret Police intelligence unit has been set up to spy on Left and Right wing political groups means.
To be honest, I have never really understood why (well not true really, I have a theory) the press always prefer to refer to the British National Party as being Right Wing.
I do not think we are for a moment. We want the utility companies, rail networks and industries of national importance to be in the control of the people and that hardly sounds like Right Wing to me. But I digress.
The new Confidential Intelligence Unit will mount surveillance and run informers on "domestic extremists" and "radical campaigners". Do they mean people like BNP activists and keyboard warriors like myself?
Well, who ever is assigned to surveillance on me is going to get pretty bored, however if they wish to "entrap me" could they please make sure that their agent is a pretty young thing with blue eyes who likes watching old films, documentaries, poker and reading. Female of course.
The unit also aims to identify the ring-leaders behind violent demonstrations such as the recent anti-Israel protests in London, and to infiltrate neo-Nazi groups, animal liberation groups and organisations behind unlawful industrial action such as secondary picketing.And there you have the truth of the matter tucked on at the end of the paragraph. They mean the Wildcat strikes in defence of British Jobs for British Workers that the British National Party supported.
But those of us who have been around the block already know that our actions are monitored even if not physically watched and have been for decades.
For example, back in the late 80's I owned a small printing company with two personal computers for designing the artwork on. I know for a fact that both machines were accessed to see if I was printing nationalist leaflets or had information on them that was illegal. I also know the person who carried out the operation was a police informer who used a false name when he joined our local group. You did not know that I knew did you Spitfire? You do now.
And then, when I dropped out of publicly working for the nationalist cause, so to did the "informer" vanish but when over 20 year later I started the Green Arrow Blog, an email arrives from my now "old friend" wishing to rekindle "Our Friendship".
How he identified me after all those years and just a few posts on my virtually unknown blog would be a mystery if I did not know where he was coming from.
I politely informed him that I had no wish to "meet" and have a pre-paid lunch at his expense, although perhaps I should have. He is older than I and I might have learned something and he might have had a need to confess his actions.
Remember, the state agents are not all James Bond look alikes. They come in all shapes, sizes and ages and work for the state until they die. So be warned of instant new "friends" kinsmen and always choose your words carefully. Unless of course, like me, you would welcome a show trial.
