Great Britain is making sure that Big Brother can reach you in far more places:
"Talking" CCTV cameras that tell off people dropping litter or committing anti-social behaviour are to be extended to 20 areas across England.
They are already used in Middlesbrough where anyone seen misbehaving can be told to stop via a loudspeaker, controlled by control centre staff.
Home Secretary John Reid has earmarked nearly £500,000 to add speaker facilities to already-existing cameras.
But why stop now? Surely there's offensive behavior in far more places than are reached by cameras outside. Why not start addressing undesirable behavior in homes?
