Wow that is some crazy stuff right there. I wonder how your family gets to be on that list.

To think that 10 years ago I wanted to move to the UK...

Maybe they are doing this to help out the economy... 20,000 cameras ain't gonna watch themselves

lajimi: An exhibitionist's wet dream!

(2) file child porn charges against the government
(3) ???
(4) Profit!

Kill them.

The wretched scumfarks can't live their own lives sufficiently well enough that this measure would even have to be suggested. Kill them and move on with our lives. Maybe if we did kill them all we'd open up some more council houses for hard working immigrants to come over and work and contribute to society.

On the bright side, chocolate rations have been increased.

So I guess it would have been entirely too much effort for the submitter to link to the actual goddamn article instead of a farking slashdot post.

Apparently so, <b>Pocket</b>.

<internet tough guy> I'd be damned before I'd let anyone put cameras in my home. If the government of the US tried that shiat on me, I'd actually start blowing shiat up. </internet tough guy>

This seems to be the good idea and if we do this in the United States of America some may pay the fee to have the website to see what happens on this show.

Wow, really? Is it voluntary or is this something that the government just made mandatory.

Way too lazy/hungover to read the article.

Of course it's possible. It's just not likely.
 
2009-08-02 12:13:10 PM
Damn, UK guys! WTF is it with you and your camera fetish? 1984 was meant to be a warning, not a blueprint!

======================================================

And it would be nice if farkers would quit quoting the goddamn trolls. It only encourages them. It also makes my ignore list useless.

This is the country that people look to when describing the way Health Care should be run?
 
2009-08-02 12:52:12 PM
Can we get a more reputable source first?
 
2009-08-02 12:53:09 PM
What's to stop the residents from putting a bag over the camera or spray painting the lens? Oopsee
 
2009-08-02 12:53:49 PM
As a former member of the Junior Anti-Sex League, I am really getting a kick out of these replies...

No, that would be Sweden. Nice try though.

Get you out of that red ribbon, though and it's a whole different story.

But I remember, they were just decreased last week.
 
2009-08-02 12:56:24 PM
Slaxl is pretty close to the right idea. But in order for it to work, I think we'd need to provide a big enough incentive to convince the losers to off themselves, instead.

Maybe one-time payouts to the remaining family members or some sort of social welfare credit for removing a useless deadweight from the lists.

Seriously, if you people think we're not going to have to start choosing who lives and who dies pretty soon, you're just fooling yourself. Might as well get a rational program underway now before it's too late.
 
2009-08-02 12:57:24 PM
just make it a TV show, you can choose to watch whichever family you want..... then you can 'call in' to report abuse....... perhaps the most important 100 abuse calls a week can get a cash prize.....

40yoVirgin: Maybe they are doing this to help out the economy... 20,000 cameras ain't gonna watch themselves

This does sound like fodder for a new BBC reality channel.

If it is such a good idea, put the first one in the Queen's residence.

Big deal.

As long as those being monitored behave, they've nothing to worry about.

You know, as much as people like to hate MSTD, there is a valid point here. There are probably some schmucks out there that would pay to watch this. Sort of a real life Big Brother.

/but the camera in the shower costs more

Calm down people, the Express has got the CCTV part of this from absolutely nowhere. No other news outlet covering the story has mentioned CCTV, and a Google for "sin bins" "CCTV" reveals only articles sourcing the Express. Don't believe everything you read etc etc.

And the Two Minute Hate today is supposed to feature more Emanuel Goldstien in Eurasia footage.

What's all this then?
 
2009-08-02 01:04:43 PM
I would have to pull a Richard Hatch 24-7. Make them suffer.
 
2009-08-02 01:04:58 PM
As appalling as this sounds, I can't find any reference to CCTV cameras in any other source on this, not even the Daily Wail. So I'm not sure what to make of the story right now.
 
2009-08-02 01:05:25 PM
TheGreatZarquon:
Didn't we do this story awhile ago?

A couple of times, and people kept telling everyone that it wasn't going to go any farther or get any worse.

FTA "Around 2,000 families have gone through these Family Intervention Projects so far.

But ministers want to target 20,000 more in the next two years"


No planning about it from what the article says. Holy shiat am I glad I don't live over there! From other things I have read about these cctv cameras they don't seem to actually reduce or help solve most crimes.

/Oh yeah Why post a Slashdot post? The article too hard to find?
