MOTORISTS living in Central London will be spied on by a network of cameras and may have to explain their movements under Ken Livingstoneï¿½s 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 ï¿½5 daily charge. Motoring groups said that the monitoring scheme ï¿½smacks of Big Brotherï¿½.

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.
