1984 coming to a country near you
John Gallagher, managing director of Footfall, a company that is installing
cameras in shops to recognise shoppers by their walks, faces etc, nominally
to help watch for shoplifters I suppose, make it possible to track peoples
He said "Within five years, the video cameras will be
able to recognise individuals, identifying them
and counting the number of their repeat visits."
So, the government watches outside the shops on video, they watch you inside
the shops on video, your plastic lets them track all your bank and credit
info through electronic debris, they are trying hard to get carte blanche
rights to snoop on your cellphone and land line use, they are planning to
sift through all your internet mail and web browsing activity -
WHERE IS THE PRIVACY HERE? .
The ECHR is very clear on privacy, but we are giving it away to footfall,
the government and credit agencies by NOT saying NO, YOU MAY NOT SPY on us
and share information....
