Government Tracking Family Supermarket Spend via NHS App Just the Beginning
But don’t suggest it's like the Chinese Social Credit System or you'll be banned from Facebook and Youtube.
The new plan, earmarked for a January launch, would track families' supermarket spending through an expanded NHS app, and reward those who buy more fruit, vegetables and low calorie meals. They could also gain extra "points" in the app by taking part in organised exercise events or by walking to school. The points could be exchanged for incentives such as discounts and free tickets to events.
A Whitehall source told the Telegraph: "Addressing the country's obesity problem after Covid is one of the key things that the Prime Minister wants to address. There is a whole team in Downing Street working on this and the Prime Minister thinks that we simply cannot go on as before, and that we must now tackle it head on."
They added: "He has been on a very rigorous diet and exercise programme and it is likely he will play a leading role in fronting this whole campaign." The PM's food tsar, Henry Dimbleby, last week suggested the idea of a tax on unhealthy food - which he said would add £1 onto a £90 shop. He said families would encourage food giants to "reformulate" their snacks to avoid being caught by the levy.
This, in case you are still in any doubt, is the start of the Social Credit System that campaigners warned you about. The NHS App will morph into the UK's version of the Social Credit System that Communist China force on their people some years ago. This is no conspiracy theory, this is already in an advanced stage of development.
Vision News has obtained a Government document that claims a need for a 'citizen data system' and throughout the 127 page document extols the virtues of China's system. In fact, China's Social Credit System is referenced some 190 times in it.
Patrick Vallance, one of the co-authors of the paper, states in the forward:
China has prioritised national economic and social security, with strong government coordination and control of citizen data combined with restrictions on international transfers. These values are demonstrated by the Chinese Social Credit System, which is intended to aggregate financial, law enforcement, commercial, social media and other data in order to monitor citizens’ compliance with various obligations, determine sanctions and encourage certain behaviours.
And, just as with the china system, the plan is to scoop up every piece of data you generate. Information is power, and for the Government, power is like crack-cocaine.
The document goes on to list all the data it wants to obtain:
• Unique identifiers (e.g. NHS or passport number)
• Shared identifiers (e.g. name, date of birth, address)
• Biometric data (e.g. DNA, fingerprints) • Medical, educational or other records
• Data generated or observed through interaction with services or devices, such as; Internet browsing history; tracking cookies; IP addresses; Video data (e.g. CCTV images) ; Utility usage data (e.g. from smart meters) ; Data generated though interaction with Internet of Things (IoT) devices (e.g. voice recordings) ; Consumer data (e.g. online shopping behaviour) ; Social media data ; Location data (e.g. through fitness tracker apps)
• Inferences, predictions and assumptions derived from data about people (e.g. digital profiles used for targeted advertising)
• Metadata relating to data about people (e.g. when and how data was generated)
• De-identified data (e.g. medical records with identifying fields removed or changed, for use in scientific research and planning)
• Aggregate data such as census information, even if it is reportedly anonymised
Literally no aspect of your life will not be monitored by the Government. NONE. Exactly the same as China's system.
Later in the document it states
2.3 National security and law enforcement Citizen data has always been a major source of information for national security. This can range from targeted interception of communications (e.g. the calls or emails of a suspect), to analysis of broader datasets such as travel data or communications metadata (e.g. the times of calls). Such citizen data can enable both individual interventions (e.g. using data to monitor and identify suspects) and higher-level strategic decision-making (e.g. using data to target enforcement activity across institutions or areas, and analyse factors driving offending rates to inform crime prevention policies). Access through bulk powers or specific intercept powers may require authorisation (e.g. a warrant) and may be subject to independent oversight mechanisms to ensure proportionality and necessity. Further examples of potential measures are given in Table 3. The benefits to security and justice are usually recognised by society, but there is often seen to be a trade-off with privacy. 24 . Views of this balance depend on the values of particular groups and regions, and the impact of recent events (from terrorism to perceived misuse of government power), which may not be stable or consistent within countries. See Section 4.1 for further discussion of this.
The conclusion notes:
Summary of main findings Citizen data is increasing rapidly in volume and variety. The effective use and sharing of it has the potential to bring huge benefits to the economy and society as a whole: boosting productivity and trade, enabling innovative products, improving public service delivery and informing scientific research. It has already formed a significant driver of economic development and innovation in public services in the UK and elsewhere.
Discounts for fatties is not the real purpose here, just like vaccine records, these are mere excuses for what is coming.
