The camera's can be a good thing, muggers, rapists and paedophiles will always think twice nowadays cos of the face recognition... also if somebody does get mugged, then there's a good chance the criminal will be caught within a day or two...

Why aren't the British people marching in outrage? Because most of us in this country are very happy with a very good quality of living and don't feel our life's are being infringed on by anybody or party.
Yes there are cameras in the cities to monitor crime and traffic. Outside of the cities the only cameras you will see are are privately owned to safe guard small businesses or private property.
To be quite frank if our cities weren't so monitored there would be absolute chaos and anarchy!
We need our cameras they're there for a reason.
If the population of Britain felt there rights we're being stripped there would be trouble, but as it stands all the measures being drafted by our Government are for a very good reason.
Immigration, Terrorism and crime.
