Apparently having an estimated 4 million CCTV cameras in the UK and being classified as an endemic surveillance society along with such notable democratic states as China isn’t enough for some. Nor do some seem concerned by the warnings of the Information Commissioner. ‘Talking’ CCTV schemes are to be installed in a further 20 areas of England. The systems tell people off for misbehaviour or instruct people to move on. To give them a ‘human’ aspect, there will be competitions in local schools to become the voice of the system.
