UK Liberty


Posted in surveillance society by ukliberty on March 5, 2009

Paul Lewis in the Guardian on the David Aaronitch “people aren’t really caught on 300 CCTV cameras per day” story:

But the numbers debate misses the point. There will never be an accurate figure. What is beyond dispute is that CCTV is, in cities and towns across Britain, ubiquitous. Full stop. We know this because we can see them.

Second, the physical number of individual cameras is not the problem. It is their scope, their use and, of course, whether they are even needed in the first place that matters.

(and SpyBlog dealt with the 300 two years ago, so there.)
