ALL WELCOME !!!

* What if all your assumptions about CCTV were wrong?

* What if you were told that surveillance cameras do not reduce crime - would you still be in favour of them?

* What if CCTV cameras caused the very problems they purport to prevent?

* Is there really a difference between soviet style roadside checkpoints and Automatic Number Plate Recognition Cameras?

* Did you know that the expansion of number plate cameras is part of a Home Office/ACPO agenda called Project Columbus?

* Are CCTV cameras against the very principles of the Common Law that has underpinned our society for hundreds of years?

* Did you know that the government released a National CCTV Strategy in 2007?

The coalition government has tried to play up their pro civil liberties credentials - but the desire to further regulate CCTV was spelt out in the 2007 Strategy.

Isn't it rude to stare? Is the UK surveillance-mad or just mad?
