Re: Can someone please explain to me why the UK is one of the most monitored societie
Northern Ireland has historically been the test bed for orwellian security infra. If you need to know what's round the corner for the UK have a look at Belfast. Erosian of civil liberties began way before Blair. The widening of the social stratification increasing since 70's much like the USA has seen a parallel increase of a police state to monitor the disenfranchised. The USA also has this firmly in place, you only have to look at the growth of 'private estates' with barb wire around the perimeters in suburban neighbourhoods. This trend is happening in the UK and is on the increase sadly.
