Ok so it has finally got to that point. Mr Orwell your world is here. Barking and Dagenham have CCTV cameras with faceless voices behind them from central control. This "public service" was demonstrated on the local news as being for the safety and reassurance of the public and what they showed was a woman being told to zip her bag up properly so that she didn't get mugged.
Is it just a coincidence that this is where the BNP won 11 seats in 2006?
Is it just me who thinks this is getting scary?
