The All-Seeing Eye

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?

Let's make sure Winston is putting his full effort into his physical jerks every bright, cold April morning.
