I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time... like tears in rain... Time to die.

And remember, this is the left-wing government.

No it isn't.

Presumably this is all voluntary.

I'm loving the thread title btw GF.

This article is silly, especially when it ends now with:

UPDATE: Further research shows that the Express didn’t quite have all its facts straight. This scheme is active, and the numbers are fairly accurate (if estimated), but the mentions of actual cameras in people’s homes are exaggerated. The truth is that the scheme can take the most troublesome families out of their homes and move them, temporarily, to a neutral, government-run compound. Here they will be under 24-hour supervision. CCTV cameras are not specifically mentioned, not are they denied, but 24-hour “supervision” certainly doesn’t rule this out from the camera-loving Brits.

 
Anyone else think 'nor are they denied' was added to say the reporter feeling like a tit?

Absolutely blown out of proportion. I've seen this in action and that article is total bullshit. It's playing up to an audience. The scheme itself is a good idea. It's hard to imagine what is sinister about this idea too. What can the government possibly gain from it? People need to remember this when they think the government bogey men are spying on them for god knows what reason: You're uninteresting and nobody gives a flower about you.
