Government not stupid
Obviously putting 999 on a social website as the number to call to report abuse is a completely stupid idea.
However I am contiuning my mind game of assuming the government are not stupid. OK, now please join me in this, if the government are not stupid what could be the explaination for this suggestion perported to be from the government?
Here are some of my suggestions, please add your own.
1. The government never suggested this, the media made up the lie so the government look stupid.
2. The government have targeted this at stupid people who will think it's an excellent idea.
3. They really are going to make the websites do it and every ISP will have to install Phorm so that when the site is used in the UK or USA the correct number shows up 999 or 911
4. They want to give the 999 people something to complain about. "the number of hoax calls we are getting has escalated"
So I really think they are sofening us up for something. The ISP will complain that they can't carry out the government instructions to make the Internet safe because they break RIPA and other laws. The government will then clear the laws to allow Phorm to profile childrens social networking to identify valnerable people. This list will then be made availalble to the peidophiles in Social Services who can then take the kids into care and move them to Jersey.
This will make everyone safer so if you object then you are a terrorist.
Remember the government are not stupid, therefore they must be very smart and very evil.
