Quite Orwellian! UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson wants to pass a new legislation which will allow for the recruiting of children to spy on their parents.
The Prime Minister is facing a major party revolt over the bill, that is “pretty shocking” and “highlights how Boris Johnson has been a fairly disappointing prime minister especially on issues of liberty.”
According to Spiked Online editor Brendan O’Neill: “This is really really dodgy. Everyone accepts the need for covert human intelligence, we need spies we need to break up terrorist groups.
“But recruiting children to watch their own families, spy on their families, there’s something quite Orwellian about that. What we have now both the right and the left in different ways support children spying on their own families.“
The Covert Human Intelligence Source is currently before the parliament in the UK and will return to the House of Commons after the House of Lords added an amendment to curtail the use of children in spy activity.
