• Ironically, the main reason for the explosion of surveillance is due to the influx of uneducated and uncivilized immigrants, mostly African and South East Asian, exhibiting what the ever-polite British refer to as “anti-social behavior.”
On February 27, AMERICAN FREE PRESS conducted an exclusive interview with Emma Carr, the Deputy Director of Big Brother Watch (BBW), a London-based watchdog founded in 2009 “set up to challenge policies that threaten our privacy, our freedoms and our civil liberties, and to expose the true scale of the surveillance state.”
“Britain’s currently home to 20 percent of the world’s CCTV cameras having only 1 percent of the world’s population,” explained Ms. Carr, the reason many consider the UK to be the most watched nation on earth
BBW just released a report entitled “The Price of Privacy: How local authorities spent £515m ($814 million) on CCTV in four years,” which identified some key findings that they hope will increase dialogue on this issue and lead to some effective regulation of the UK’s massive surveillance system.
The report revealed that, far from providing safer neighborhoods or crime-solving capabilities, the system of surveillance spread across much of the UK is near worthless for the huge sums spent.
The reason for this is that the immigrant criminal element that has overrun Jolly Old England over the past several decades has become desensitized by CCTV’s presence, well aware that their technology does not produce clear images and not all cameras are monitored or properly recorded or saved. Ironically, the main reason for the explosion of surveillance is due to the influx of uneducated and uncivilized immigrants, mostly African and South East Asian, exhibiting what the ever-polite British refer to as “anti-social behavior.”
