Surveillance Cameras (again).

Yes I know, judging by this blog, all I do all day is read the Guardian/Observer (which is actually what I do all day).

Anyway, if your interested in issues of right to privacy there's this column by Henry Porter in today's Observer. Porter rightly questions what all the surveilance cameras does to society and comments on how they are the result of a climate of fear. Not the best of his articles, but Porter is at least a lone voice crying out against the surveillance society that is and is to come.

Preach it brother Porter! Well, not the line about "Security cameras do have their value and in the centre of big cities they are often responsible for identifying criminals," please leave such concession out of any future articles.
