Biometric Data Required For Domestic British Airways Flights

 

I spend large amounts of time in Asia.

There was an opportunity recently to get a cheap ticket home.

Manchester is my home town, but I couldn’t get a direct flight from where I am here. Getting to London was no problem, so I enquired about flights from London to Manchester as I knew there are about 9 LHR-MAN flights every day. It also ment I’d have less time waiting in transit in Mumbai or whatever.

To my horror, the agents ticketing enquiry stated that I’d have to supply biomentric data for my flight from Heathrow to Manchester! WHAT? Biometrics for a domestic flight? I couldn’t believe it. I dont have a biometric PP, and I DEFINATELY DON’T WANT ONE, and I will resist ANY attempt to have one forced upon me, to which I urge all other resistros to held steady and resist similarly. The flight in questions was a BA flight.

 My reason for not wanting a biometric PP (or ID card) is that I have absolutely no doubt in my mind whatsoever, that biometric data will be used for corrupt and deadly purposes by the government or branches associated with it. It is a restriction on liberty and will only make the purported “criminals” more inventive and harder to catch and electronic data of peoples details is the single most powerful tool the establishment has for consolidating the fascism present in British society today.

Not to mention the government is already reported to be selling database information to private companies as well as losing the data – for which the government should be sued!

 So I had to get another flight which was biometric free.

I was astounded that I could fly into the UK from abroad with no biometrics, but to travel around my own country needed biometrics.  This does not mean I do or would accept biometrics be a requirment on foreigners, but IF it were to be introduced for the purposes the government says it’s for, then it would be foreign people (all 6 billion of them) who should be the principle ‘threat’ to the security of the UK.

But of course that explains everything, becasue the UK govt DON’T expect the greatest threat from foreigners but from ‘their’ own people and want to exercise the greatest control it can over its domestic populace. It’s a recurring theme. What threat do homies pose and why the need to try and impost total control (i.e. fascism)? becasue it is the citizens of the UK that are the ONLY ones that have the power to bring a halt to all this madness, and overthrow the dire rot that is at the heart of our power centres today.

Say goodbye to queues at Customs

It’s all so easy isn’t it.
Note to travel now you need The Mark of The Beast ??
But did you know that ALL these Biometric Signatures / faces and fingers are owned by America now?? CIA has obtained every Biometic Data base in the world. Yes this is the same CIA who orchestrates most of the Terrorism round the world.
Peace and Safety. Well that’s about to come to an end.

Say goodbye to queues at Customs

Kiwis flying across the Tasman could soon be getting through airports more quickly with the help of automatic passport-reading machines.

New Zealand and Australian travellers with electronic passports will be able to put themselves through passport control without having to queue.

Passengers put their passports into a machine similar to a ticket kiosk that downloads details, including an electronic image of the passport holder’s face.

Passengers are then given a coupon for a gate, at which cameras and computers using facial recognition technology do the checks done till now by customs officers.

Customs comptroller Martyn Dunne said New Zealanders had been able to use the SmartGate at Brisbane Airport since late last year and the system would soon be set up in Sydney.

Similar machines would be tested in Wellington in the next few months and he expected the system would be available for all trans-Tasman travel in time for the 2011 Rugby World Cup.

At first it would be available only to New Zealanders and Australians with electronic passports but he expected it would later be available to those from other countries.

Travellers would still have to go through the airport baggage-checking system and some people would still be pulled aside.

“All this is processing people and takes away the necessity to handle everybody in a one-to-one contact,” Mr Dunne said.

New Zealanders and Australians accounted for 60 per cent of all trans-Tasman passengers and it would streamline the procedure for most people.

WHAT IS SMARTGATE?
An electronic passport control system that automatically checks that travellers are who they say they are and does the routine immigration and customs checks everyone is put through when arriving at the border. It should reduce airport queues.

How does it work?
The SmartGate kiosk reads data, including an electronic photo on the microchip embedded in electronic passports issued since 2005. Computers use facial recognition technology to verify the passenger’s identity. If they match, passengers go through automatically – if not, they have to be checked by a customs officer.

I don’t subscribe to the Sex Pistols ‘culture’ (if that isn’t beyond them) but I think this song is quite appropriate…

SEX PISTOLS LYRICS

“God Save The Queen”

God save the queen
The fascist regime
They made you a moron
Potential H-bomb
God save the queen
She ain’t no human being
There is no future
In England’s dreaming
Don’t be told what you want
Don’t be told what you need
There’s no future, no future,
No future for you
God save the queen
We mean it man
We love our queen
God saves

God save the queen
‘Cause tourists are money
And our figurehead
Is not what she seems

Oh God save history
God save your mad parade
Oh Lord God have mercy
All crimes are paid

When there’s no future
How can there be sin
We’re the flowers in the dustbin
We’re the poison in your human machine
We’re the future, your future

God save the queen
We mean it man
We love our queen
God saves

God save the queen
We mean it man
And there is no future
In England’s dreaming

No future, no future,
No future for you
No future, no future,
No future for me

No future, no future,
No future for you
No future, no future
For you

    This kind of stuff really bothers me. I understand that many people believe biometrics is going to be the future and that it is going to help in the end, but have we ever thought about what could happen if it didn’t help in the end.

    We would have systems that completely invade our privacy, that don’t allow us to go to the grocery store with out “big brother” knowing. Iris recognition is the ultimate in biometric scanners and I for one do not like that it is being developed at such a large scale.

    I ran across this article the other day, –link removed – unnecessary advertising — which basically states that iris recognition is growing and becoming more accurate. We need to stand up and ensure that this invasion of our privacy does not occur because of corporate America’s greed.

      @ Tyler

      Yes, Universities included! – rushing into it because it ‘sounds like development/progress’ – that old illusory carrot long been dangled in front of us to help strengthen tyrants that think somehow thy have a right to impose their will upon us.

      I advocate a world without ID (certainly on this scale), without borders even, but my stance is widely rejected as it would threaten people current grip of power and money.

      I find the concept of countries against my sense of justice, however I find myself in a county that is legions better than many others.

      Have toy seen that anti-ID video with that guy who pulls into a petrol station and loses hus ID? (I’ll try and hunt the link out)

      I oppose all biometric stuff. Iris scanners, fingerprints, DNA.

      I’m afraid to say the biometrics is the key to the cashless society and I believe the people administering that are the worlds shadow government. It will allow near total control of almost anyone’s life.

      If it is getting more accurate that means it had flaws before. So much for marketing spin and lies of ‘the ultimate’ There is little need then to believe more lies that it is more ‘accurate’ now – they said it was accurate before yes?

      And of course all the biodata can (and will) get pinched – actually, hasn’t some bio data been pinched already bio I think it already has. No need to single out America… The corporations are greedy no matter what coloured underpants they wear.

      Like all electronic devices, they can be hacked and they can break down, they can be stolen (like the portable one displayed in the link you gave) they can have their data intercepted and falsified.

      I am waiting for the first case to come to court (assuming it hasn’t happened yet) where false electronic data which a 10 year old could so (simply swap electronic files of ‘biodatabase’ info with ‘bio data evidence collected from the scene of a ‘crime’). Scottish police did this against a Scottish police woman once, but with biodata there is almost no defence – it’s the perfect stitch-up tool.
