The fingermen are the left wing oppressors, akin to the Checka, NKVD, and the KGB in Soviet Russia and the Gestapo and Brown Shirts in Nazi Germany.

The "fingermen" were the empowered supporters of this "new world order" of suppressive government, spear-headed by the Orwellian inspired figure-head character portrayed by John Hurt.
You don't outright see the "fingermen" only to know their discreet $$$ and corruptive support snatched away the basic freedoms enjoyed by the British.
