It’s no coincidence that a veritable public relations advertisement concealed as an article in the Daily Mail regarding the microchipping of thousands of Swedish people would soon be followed up by an article announcing yet more microchipping of employees and individuals in the UK. That is just what is happening now in an article by the Guardian entitled “Alarm over talks to implant UK employees with microchips.”
Although both articles present the idea of microchipping as something that is new and rarely done, the truth is that neither the technology nor the process is new and the practice is growing across Europe and North America at an alarming rate.
The UK’s largest employer organization is promoting microchips
Britain’s largest “employer organization” and “main trade union body” is now speaking out over the prospect of British companies implanting their employees for security purposes.
According to the Guardian, BioTeq, a UK firm, has already implanted 150 microchips in the UK. The company offers the chips to both businesses and individuals and the implants are being marketed mainly for convenience and the ability to access secure locations or simply to start their car with a wave of their hand. The chips can also store medical data and are similar to the ones implanted in pets.
These chips are so tiny that they can be implanted between the thumb and forefinger while others, such as the ones offered by Biohax of Sweden, are about the size of a grain of rice. Biohax was one of the topics of a recent publicity push in the European media to promote (by the cover of an article) the process and the company in general. It is thus not surprising that the company is back in the news this time around or that it is now in discussions with several British financial and legal firms regarding the possibility of implanting their employees with microchips. One of those companies has hundreds of thousands of employees.
Of course, one has to wonder whether or not the technological totalitarian society is marching ahead with that fast a stride or if the stories are merely designed to present the sense of inevitability (i.e. hundreds of thousands of people are about to microchipped) so that Brits will accept the coming push as just one more cultural change they have no choice but to accept. In truth, it is much more likely to be a blend of both.
There’s some pre-planned criticism to allay people’s fears over being microchipped
As for the pre-planned criticism that only goes so far (critics will never point out the agenda of microchipping entire populations for control purposes on the part of totalitarian governments/corporations) and provide a perfect pretext for the recent spate of covertly positive coverage of the microchips, the Trades Union Congress and Confederation of British Industry have voiced concern over the microchipping plans.
A CBI spokesperson said: “While technology is changing the way we work, this makes for distinctly uncomfortable reading. Firms should be concentrating on rather more immediate priorities and focusing on engaging their employees.”
According to the Guardian, “The TUC is worried that staff could be coerced into being microchipped. Its general secretary Frances O’Grady said: ‘We know workers are already concerned that some employers are using tech to control and micromanage, whittling away their staff’s right to privacy.’”
“Microchipping would give bosses even more power and control over their workers. There are obvious risks involved, and employers must not brush them aside, or pressure staff into being chipped, he said.”
Steven Northam, the founder and owner of BioTeq which is based out of Hampshire and the latest recipient of the free publicity courtesy of the British media which has pushed microchipping for years, told the Guardian that the majority of the 150 implants have been for individuals, though some engineering and financial firms have implanted the chips into their staff.
The practice of microchipping is spreading fast
BioTeq also worked with a bank that is testing the technology and shipped the chips to Spain, Germany, France, China, and Japan. Of course, Northam claims that himself and all the directors of BioTeq as well as his own company IncuHive, have been microchipped.
