Government Gives Citizens Marks for Good Behaviour

Dr Vernon Coleman MB ChB DSc FRSA

The Government is planning to give people marks according to behaviour.

The Government will measure people’s behaviour in order to decide what services they are entitled to.

Anyone who incurs black marks for traffic offences, fare dodging or jay working will find that they are no longer entitled to the full range of public services and rights.

Moreover, internet activity will also be used to assess behaviour.

Individuals who do bad things on the internet (or whose searches are considered questionable) will find themselves black marked.

Individuals who have ‘responsible’ jobs will be subjected to enhanced scrutiny.

At the moment, it is only the Chinese Government that is planning to give its citizens a ‘social credit score’.

But who wants to bet that Western Governments won’t soon follow suit?
