The rise and rise of Big Brother…

Privacy International have brought out some very interesting figures on the degree to which invidivual citizens’ rights to privacy are being incrementally erroded. The UK, the US and Russia all come out pretty poorly, with the Republic only marginally better. Interestingly, Scotland comes out better than England and Wales where widespread CCTV installations now means that the police can track the progress of individual vehicles on the motorway from Carlisle to Exeter. Thanks to reader heck for the heads up.
