“We should all be worried because we are sleep walking into a society where 24 hours surveillance is the norm.” - Henry Porter
“Since Tony Blair’s New Labour government came to power in 1997, the UK civil liberties landscape has changed dramatically. ASBOs were introduced by Section 1 of the Crime and Disorder Act 1998 and first used in 1999. The right to remain silent is no longer universal. Our right to privacy, free from interception of communications has been severely curtailed. The ability to travel without surveillance (or those details of our journeys being retained) has disappeared.”
What I want to know is where did they get the money for all these cameras? And how did they suddenly spring up everywhere without our even knowing? Sinister stuff. Remember, “government” is the mask of big, transnational business: that is a stone cold, hard fact.
