So not content with wanting to have the power to pillage our bodies after we die, the government now wants to insert foreign objects into us while we're alive. The Ministry of Justice is wanting to insert microchips under the skin of prisoners as an alternative to tags. It's exactly the sort of thing that tyrannical regimes wouldn't think twice of doing. You can be sure that if this sort of technology had been available to Hitler of Stalin, they would have used it on most of their populations.
Has this government completely lost sight of the concept of civil liberties? I totally understand that argument that if you are found guilty of a crime and are sentenced you lose your liberty. But wearing an electronic tag and having a chip inserted into your body are two very different things.
I hope that anyone who values the concept of individual freedom will be against this lunatic proposal.
