#Slave #Britain: #Cameron uses #child #porn again as an excuse to justify #GCHQ’s surveillance role

DCCENAs we have learned – especially over the past year – David Cameron will stoop to incredible levels of depravity and manipulation to boost his public image.

In his latest propaganda exercise, Cameron is heralding the news that Google and Microsoft are adding a few more key words to the ‘blocked’ lists of their respective search engines and using photo recognition scripts to block potential ‘child abuse’ images from their search engine results as a “massive breakthrough in cleaning up the internet.”

Cameron’s claims are totally out of proportion to the reality of child pornography on the internet, and have been criticised by experts in the field.

Those who indulge in their sick fantasies do not use Google or Bing to share child pornography. The effect of blocking content on the two search engines against the spread of such material is zero, and is nothing more than a step to indirect censorship of the internet after the failure of the government’s proposed Data Communications Bill.

Trying to fool the public in to thinking that the latest restrictions through two of the major search engines is going to do anything to stop the suffering of children at the hands of the perverted is both highly deceitful and an underhand political strategy.

Speaking to the BBC, Jim Gamble, former chief executive of the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP), said “I don’t think this will make any difference with regard to protecting children from paedophiles. They don’t go on to Google to search for images. They go on to the dark corners of the Internet on peer-to-peer websites.”

Martyn Thomas, who chairs the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) IT Policy Panel, agreed. “There are better and more effective ways to protect children,” he said. “The measures will help to protect young children from accessing such material, but they will do little for the people sharing these images which is being done through private peer-to-peer networks.”

In fact, both Google and Microsoft have worked on blocking child abuse (and other undesirable) content for years – long before Cameron jumped on the bandwagon to try and score positive political points with the public.

The distribution of child abuse content is not generally done using the ‘regular’ or ‘normal’ internet (email, web pages etc.), as most users know it.  It is distributed using private networks set up for peer-to-peer sharing or through encrypted ‘tunnels’ which use internet connectivity to distribute content through specialist software and networks – often referred to as the ‘darknet’ – away from public scrutiny.

After being criticised by leading experts, Cameron seemed to change tactics. During an interview with BBC Radio 2, Cameron said that he was prepared to instruct the intelligence services (namely GCHQ) to target the ‘darknet’. He said “That expertise is going to be brought to bear to go after these revolting people sharing these images on the dark net and making them available more widely.”

A bit late Cameron! GCHQ and the NSA have already been targeting one encrypted network to try and break into its systems and identify users.

In top secret documents disclosed by whistleblower Edward Snowden it was revealed that the NSA and GCHQ have made repeated attempts to break into the Tor network and identify users, with very limited success. In one leaked NSA presentation the attempts to gain significant inroads into the Tor network were described “We will never be able to de-anonymize all Tor users all the time.” It continues: “With manual analysis we can de-anonymize a very small fraction of Tor users,” and says the agency has had “no success de-anonymizing a user in response” to a specific request.

Ironically, the Tor network receives 60% of its funding from the US government, primarily the State Department and the Department of Defence – which houses the NSA.

It is relied upon by journalists, activists and campaigners in the US and Europe as well as in China, Iran and Syria, to maintain the privacy of their communications and avoid reprisals from government

Despite Tor’s importance to dissidents and human rights organizations, however, the NSA and its UK counterpart GCHQ have devoted considerable efforts to attacking the service.

So it would seem that GCHQ has already been heavily involved in trying to break the anonymous networks Cameron now claims to be a potential target for the intelligence services. Either he is behind the times or he is lying.

With government attempts to control the flow of information on the internet failing in the face of significant opposition to the evolving police state, Cameron has ‘latched on’ to child abuse as a lever to persuade the public to accept more control – after all, who could argue against tracking down perverts who abuse children?

Gaining control of the so-called ‘dark net’ would be a significant gain for the government. They would be able to control the flow of any information which criticised or attempted to expose government’s corrupt agenda and wrongdoings.

In reality, those who use the networks for illegal activities make up a tiny proportion of users. Although the extent of the mass surveillance programmes of the NSA and GCHQ have come into the public arena recently, those who seek to expose our governments have known for a long time that normal internet communications have been monitored, and they have used and set up a alternative routes for the distribution of sensitive and controversial material.

Many whistleblowers have used encrypted networks to communicate with the press and distribute documents so they make their way into the public domain without compromising their own safety or revealing their identities.

If Cameron is so concerned about child abuse, why has he not devoted more resources to police investigations into known abuse cases? For example, the Elm Guest house affair where well known politicians and other high profile figures abused children from care homes.

As yet, there has not been one significant development where a living political figure has been exposed in the public arena for their depraved activities. Neither has a current member of Cameron’s cabinet been exposed as being complicit in the cover up which followed the initial investigation.

All we have heard about in the mainstream media are arrests of ‘celebrities’ for potentially ‘historic’ low level acts during the 1960s and 1970s in the witch hunt that followed the Saville case. We have heard nothing of the high profile figures who are KNOWN to have been involved in the most depraved activities – including the abuse of very young children and sadistic and ritualistic torture. There is also strong suspicion that ‘those in high places’ have been involved in the deaths of hundreds of children to fulfil their perverted needs.

Cameron doesn’t seem bothered that (at the very least) members of his own cabinet have been complicit in protecting high-profile figures involved in child abuse of the most disgusting kind. Neither does it seem of importance to him that direct links between Thatcher’s close aides who are (were) known to have been involved in child abuse and current Conservative party members be investigated.

We must be highly suspicious of Cameron and his motives. The only thing he is interested in (as most of the current government) is control and manipulation of the public for his own motives and agenda, and those of his masters.

Cameron must be stupid to think the public are stupid and that he can fool all of them all of the time. Unfortunately, he only needs the majority who are unaware of the reality of his agenda to believe him through his control of the mainstream media and he has achieved his objective.

Cameron is constantly playing a game of smoke and mirrors.
