No Passport, No Phone, No Privacy

In formerly-Great Britain, everyone who buys a mobile telephone will be forced to register their identity on a national database under government plans to extend massively the powers of state surveillance.

Phone buyers would have to present a passport or other official form of identification at the point of purchase. Privacy campaigners fear it marks the latest government move to create a surveillance society.

CREATE a surveillance society?? As of two years ago, Britain already had 4.2 MILLION CCTV cameras watching their suspects' citizens' every move. That's one camera for every 14 people in the whole freakin' country. It's estimated that every single person in Britain is photographed at least 300 times every single day.

Too late.
