Britain: Police State Update #2

This, from today's Independent:

"The Government is planning to compile a database of every home in Britain, which will include details of how many bedrooms each house has and what kind of roof it has.

Inspectors will look at whether garden sheds have been converted into offices or studios and whether kitchens or porches have been extended. They will even be able to see if a drive has been Tarmacked or a shrubbery extended. The computer system will be used to assess council tax, inheritance tax and capital gains tax."

This is part of a plan to use satellite technology to register any changes/improvements home owners make to their residences.

"Dear Mrs X,

It is with sadness we note by spy satellite your failure to declare for tax purposes your gazebo erected Feb 12th, 2006, between the hours of 3 and 5 pm, while you were wearing blue jeans and a green shirt (photograph attached). Please contact your local council on this telephone number for details of your court appearance for non-compliance with reevaluation procedures.

yours sincerely,

The Spy Department"
