New Laws To Control Clockworks

June 1, 1906 ·

The government has won a battle to introduce new laws controlling the use of Clockwork labour. It comes after Ministers finally admitted that there’s no record of how many of the devices have been imported and are working in factories across the country.

Parliament was split over plans to reinstate the British Clockwork Project abandoned years ago following strikes by trade unions, or to take control of a British-owned, Canadian company producing the devices.

Jobs Lost To Clocks

Public protest have forced the government’s hand after several sectors of British industry replaced entire workforce with new Clockwork labour.

The devices, created by exiled British scientists, are being exported to countries around the world. Once programmed, Clockworks adapt and learn to deal with almost any task, which makes them the ideal low-cost alternative to human staff.

Many believe that the legislation has come too late to save many British jobs, and that government plans to restart the Clockwork Programme shows how out of touch it is with public opinion.

The following legislation takes immediate effect:

  • A ban on importation of all Clockworks
  • Return of all exiled government scientists
  • Restart of the Clockwork Programme in the UK
  • Registration of all newly produced Clockworks
  • Creation of a police force to be called Clockwork Watch
  • Sale & distributioon of uniform for all new Clockworks

Under the new laws all Clockworks imported into the country must be registered, but existing devices are exempt, and owners must carry proof of ownership of a Clockwork at all times, if travelling with a device in public.

Are Clocks Black Labour?

A distinctive black uniform has also been designed to help differentiate between people, and the newer model of Clockworks that could be mistaken for a real person.
