Big brother arrives as UK plans X-Ray cameras in streets.

1 Feb

The Government is considering installing X-ray cameras on lampposts to spot armed terrorists and other criminals.

According to a leaked memo seen by The Sun, “detection of weapons and explosives will become easier” if the scheme drawn up by Home Office officials is adopted.

The Prime Minister would like to know what you have in your pants.

Summary
Despite all this coverage there is little new factual information on the subject. I have it on good authority that Keztral clothes have a preliminary anti-x-ray coat and a range of other security enhancing items.

The best next action to take if you live in the UK is to write to your MP and express outrage. This will tell your MP that voting against the cameras is a seat winner.

If you live else where write to the nearest brish embassy and write to your reprisentitive and ask them to object to the UK on moral grounds.

This will make it very hard for this big brother style camera to see active use. If it makes it to active use then the only action left will be playing silly buggers in the EU courts. Good luck pushing anything through there in under five years.
