Please, do not congratulate me for the originality and cleverness of my title. However, I felt very lucky to find this sight; a spider's web on a CCTV sign (click for larger image). It is a brilliant metaphor for how dangerous, yet almost invisible, the British surveillance state is.
Incidentally, I've been reading that the Tories are considering taking actions to plan to take measures to contemplate the partial democratisation and conceivable limiting in potential circumstances if the opportunity shall arise of the surveillance state because it will save money. So that's what it's come to: tax bores offer the best chance of saving us from 1984 because the whole Big Brother thing might burn a hole in our pocket? Who knows, maybe Auntie Ayn was right after all.
Of course, I don't believe a word of it. The Tories were the ones stoking up the 'war on terror' and they are a nest of Russophobe loonies who are obviously desperate for an external enemy so that they can terrorise, sorry, protect, their own people. Too bad the Russians aren't too bothered about expanding their borders.
