CCTV - Surveillance Cameras

Britain is spending $668 million to install surveillance cameras in private homes of its citizens. The idea is to monitor antisocial and troubled families, as well as to make sure children are doing their homework, going to bed early and eating their vegetables. Say it with me all at once — WHAT?!

The man behind the idea is Ed Balls — and he certainly has a pair by trying to pull this off.

There will also be a special task force that will randomly visit homes to check up on families.

As you can imagine, public opinion on the idea has been mixed, but it’s mostly negative.
