Check out this poster that Perry de Havilland of Samizdata.net found in London. Does anyone know whether the Metropolitan Police of London decided that a caricature of an Orwellian poster would be a good idea? In other words, is this authentic propaganda of the UK government or someone's idea of political protest?
Always watching over you
CCTV is now fitted on all new buses. CCTV not only protects drivers and conductors, but also plays a major role in keeping passengers secure. It provides evidence in the event of an incident and acts as a deterrent to likely offenders.
In addition to all the new buses, in 2002/2003 we will be fitting CCTV to 1000 existing buses and the entire fleet will have CCTV fitted within 3 years.
Here is another street view of the "Secure beneath The Watchful Eyes" poster.
Here's a rather milder Croydon Looking after you sign.
Also, Perry de Havilland of Samizdata has an follow-up.
