Tories pledge to curb use of CCTV cameras

Link: Tories pledge to curb use of CCTV cameras - Telegraph.

David Davis is no libertarian, so this news is quite a surprise. Another good policy from the Tories though. Credit where it's due. What a shame that the question of whether CCTV monitoring of innocent citizens is wrong, is being confused with the separate question of whether it's effective. Having established the first, surely the second is quite irrelevant?

I see where you are going but think, like everything else, the whole thing needs to be balanced.

For arguements sake I think killing people up is wrong but in self defence it is right and thus may be acceptable. Of course our government stops at the wrong part.

CCTV is also wrong, plus it is ineffective, thus it is not acceptable.
