If Jacqui Has Done Nothing Wrong, She Has Nothing to Fear

Perry de Havilland over at Samizdata draws attention to the German hacker group that has published thousands of plastic foil reproductions of the German Interior Minister’s fingerprint, ready to glue to someone else’s finger to provide a false biometric reading. Which set Guido thinking…
Guido will buy dinner at a Michelin starred restaurant for anyone who provides him with a verifiable* copy of Jacqui Smith’s fingerprints.

You can do it yourself – How to Fake a Fingerprint in 12 Easy Steps – Chaos Club, there is an instructive D. I. Y. video here.

Remember, remember: people should not be afraid of their government, governments should be afraid of their people.

*Verification should be an explanation of how it was obtained, preferably with photographic evidence. Forinstance if she comes into your kebab shop and you capture her on CCTV holding your laminated menu. Don’t worry about copying the fingerprint. We will take it from the surface direct, so keep it safe. As far as Guido knows there is no law prohibiting gathering finger residue fluids – yet.

Gyles Brandreth writes in his memoirs:

“Sunday, May 10, 1998

Early start: appearing on Breakfast With Frost, to be broadcast from 11 Downing Street. The Chancellor [Gordon Brown] is grouchily amiable, but so earnest — and still biting his fingernails to the quick.

After the show, he took us upstairs to his flat. He lives above No 10, while Blair and family are in the No 11 duplex, which is bigger and more like a proper house.

I was intrigued that, when he took us into his bedroom, the Chancellor rather ostentatiously opened the built-in wardrobes, as if he wanted us to see the women’s frocks that were hanging in there.

They looked quite large, but I don’t think they belong to Gordon. I assume they belong to his girlfriend [Sarah Macaulay, who he later married].

I presume he was keen for us to know that he has one — and that she’s not a ‘beard’. I don’t think he does anything without calculation.”



The British media are Hunts says:

Now the SNP know how UKIP voters feel all the time.
