Come on mate, its nowhere near as bad as many try to portray.
The vast majority of CCTV systems are privately owned and police have to have a reason to access them.
There are no banks of monitors in secret hidden away rooms where massive teams of people observe our every move.
I expect most towns and cities are just like mine where there is never a time when all council monitored camera's are switched on at the same
time....austerity and all that.
And we are probably just as free to express our political and religious views as people from any other nation.
Yes, we have massive problems.....but I don't think there's a nation on earth where the same can't be said.
I know I go about my business pretty much as I please and I certainly express my personal views on a regular basis in public.
Yes, this facial recognition stuff is probably a step too far.....what we need to do is start eradicating some of the causes behind the crime and
punishing serious crime to a level in accordance with the severity of the crime.
All this namby-pamby snowflake bollocks has gone too far.
