MOTORISTS living in Central London will be spied on by a network of cameras and may have to explain their movements under Ken Livingstoneís congestion charge scheme for the capital.
The Mayor of London is demanding that the drivers waive certain rights under the Data Protection Act to obtain a discount on the £5 daily charge. Motoring groups said that the monitoring scheme ìsmacks of Big Brotherî.

I have never understood why public elected officials get to enact laws without the people firts voting on those laws. It should not be that we elect officials to enact laws. They should only be able to write laws that the people vote on enacting or rejecting. In other words the officials recongise a problem, and suggest a solution, but the people decide if that solution is enacted or not. It is a better way. Then there is no Big Brother unless the people vote it in.

I've thought about this too. If the elected government want to pass a new law or introduce a whole bunch of legal acts then the public must have the final vote as to it's approval. But of course that is not going to happen because elected governments are selfish and misguided and deem the rest of us as too dumb to make a more informed choice than themselves.

We could do with a new kind of political party that is going to change the established system from the inside out and lay down a more acceptable foundation and build a better functioning government structure that does not pander to the corporations when it introduces new policies. And if we cant do that then I guess we deserve all we get with invasive government.
