There’ll always be an England – just different

Surveillance cameras to monitor liquor sales in the jolly old country.  Let’s see – they ban anti-muslim speakers, keep muslim terrorist on welfare, ban playgrounds and fox hunting, and now they’re going to observe the alcoholic consumption of the poor old blighters who just want to blot out what’s happening and dream of days gone by?

  1. Two days ago the Chicago Sun-Times reported:

    “Mayor Daley has argued that security and terrorism won’t be an issue if his Olympic dreams come true because, by 2016, there will be a surveillance camera on every street corner in Chicago.”

    Change has come to America.

    One of the reasons I love living here is that – despite some erosion of civil liberties post 9/11 – its nothing compared to the Big Brother state that the UK is becoming. There are CCTVs everywhere in Britain…in fact in some cities hoods have been banned because it allows people to not be readily identified.
