Britain To Put CCTV Cameras Inside Private Homes

(Wired)   As an ex-Brit, I’m well aware of the authorities’ love of surveillance and snooping, but even I, a pessimistic cynic, am amazed by the governments latest plan: to install Orwell’s telescreens in 20,000 homes.


£400 million ($668 million) will be spend on installing and monitoring CCTV cameras in the homes of private citizens. Why? To make sure the kids are doing their homework, going to bed early and eating their vegetables. The scheme has, astonishingly, already been running in 2,000 family homes. The government’s “children’s secretary” Ed Balls is behind the plan, which is aimed at problem, antisocial families. The idea is that, if a child has a more stable home life, he or she will be less likely to stray into crime and drugs.

It gets worse. The government is also maintaining a private army, incredibly not called “Thought Police”, which will “be sent round to carry out home checks,” according to the Sunday Express. And in a scheme which firmly cements the nation’s reputation as a “nanny state”, the kids and their families will be forced to sign “behavior contracts” which will “set out parents’ duties to ensure children behave and do their homework.”

And remember, this is the left-wing government. The Shadow Home Secretary Chris Grayling, batting for the conservatives, thinks these plans are “too little, and too late,” implying that even more obtrusive work needs to be done. Rumors that a new detention center, named Room 101, is being constructed inside the Ministry of Love are unconfirmed.

  • This isn’t so incredible when one understands how evil the Brit govt. has already become:

    It’s all prime evidence of the importance of opening “Liberal” season as soon as any efforts are made to register or confiscate civilian weapons.

    Don’t understand? Start here:

  • The mentality of government is that nothing can be done without their help. We are all incompetent and only government employees know what is best for us in spite of the fact that the more government meddles in our lives and affairs the worse everything gets. Mike

  • George Orwell, in actuality, predicted what is now happening. The problem is the people. They have been so dumbed-down that they now believe that only government can solve all of the problems. The Government schools dumb them down, and the totally, controlled media maintains the dumbing-down.
    Because the people, the masses-r-asses as I call them, will not face the reality that they have been both lied to and duped into believing that government is good, the entire planet will slowly become subjects and only a revolution, as Jefferson had noted, will overcome the fraud; it does not have to be a violent revolution, only a complete removal of all alleged public servants that do not know nor understand what it required to serve the people!

  • You’re all a bunch of nuts, man!
