• Big Brother using planes to spy on UK citizens

The comments button is at the bottom right of this post.

The Daily Mail is reporting that the Broadland District Council hired a plane for five days to find out which houses were “wasting” energy.

The plane had thermal imaging equipment, and those houses which showed up as leaking a lot of heat received a visit from council officers. How long before the visits switch from so-called education to enforcement?

Then there’s this quote from a council officer:

‘We were also able to look at very cold properties and think we might have picked up people on low incomes who are not heating their homes because they cannot afford to.’

So they’re already going beyond environmental issues and into social issues. Will they send a social worker to knock on the door of these cold houses and prosecute people for not keeping their children warm? Such actions by the nanny state are probably legally feasible right now.

There’s no mention of how much CO2 the plane generated.

Much evil is done under the banner of environmentalism.
