In an interesting rant in the Grauniad today, Blunkett tells us not to be so paranoid at being watched all the time.
Some great quotes from the man himself.
If, in the name of liberty, we allow individuals to act in a way that damages the wellbeing of the whole, it will inevitably mean the breakdown of mutuality, thereby changing the very nature of our society.
We are not a "surveillance state" – only those who have lived in a police state can appreciate just what that term means.
We need principles upon which we can base actions that, in the name of protecting freedom and decency, may otherwise become oppressive, intolerant of difference and self-destructive.
Meanwhile, the Police are now equipped with a fantastic new camera for photographing crowds (remember, you are no longer allowed to photograph them). Zoom in on anyone in the enormous crowd. Wow.
If that wasn't enough, they now have 360 degree "chuck" cameras to throw at us if we get too uppitty.
