Lest you think the concept of 24/7, government surveillance in your home was just a nightmarish figment of George Orwell's fertile imagination....I present you, Airstrip One, the name of England in his book, "1984"...
The Children’s Secretary set out £400million plans to put 20,000 problem families under 24-hour CCTV super-vision in their own homes.
They will be monitored to ensure that children attend school, go to bed on time and eat proper meals.
Private security guards will also be sent round to carry out home checks.
How long before they expand the justification for home-monitoring to include enforcement of recycling, limiting anti-Muslim "hate-speech", restricting politically-incorrect gatherings, punishing divisive talk regarding the government, etc?
This is precisely what Orwell predicted for London in "1984". It's coming to pass. How sad and pathetic that the people who established the British Empire have let their once-great country descend into this!
