FOLLOWING the hoo-ha provoked by my earlier post on the threat – or lack of it – posed by CCTV cameras to our civil liberties, I’ve had an idea. Those cyber-Tories who are convinced that a future Tory government will herald a CCTV-less age now have the chance to prove it by asking their own Tory candidate or MP which CCTV scheme in his or her constituency will be axed after ‘Dave’ becomes prime minister. Post the information on this site – preferably with a supporting quote from the relevant MP or candidate.
I look forward to publishing the full list well in advance of polling day.
UPDATE at 11.15 pm: Still haven’t received offers of CCTV schemes that might be dismantled should a Tory government be inflicted upon us. Strange, that. Are we sure the Tories are opposed to CCTV?
