...or is the idea of having these things flying about really f*cking scary:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/merseyside/6676809.stm

These can be controlled by a person, or can fly themselves using GPS.

So with no need for a person to control them, theoretically at some point in the future these could be all over the uk, hovering over our heads watching us.

I'm not saying that's gonna happen, it probably won't, and I don't like to sound too "Daily Mail" doom and gloom about it all, but they do un-nerve me a bit!

Coincidently, Alan Parsons Project's 'Eye in the Sky' was just remastered recently.

Hmmmmmmmmm

But seriously.. scary but also super-cool at the same time I think ;)

I agree - it's scary. The government should not watch the citizens non-stop. What is "anti-social behaviour", anyway? Spitting on the street? This is very 1984-ish.

Indeed - "anti-social" behaviour can be quite a subjective thing.

The UK is becoming less and less 'free' as time goes on - I shudder to think where we will be in 20 years time.

I do not trust our government at all - and to top things off, they are voting to exclude themselves from the "Freedom of Information" laws - so they can do what they want and not be held accountable.

Looks like many countries are on the same way: under the pretense that the citizens must be protected against terror acts (not that there have been many terror acts in my country!)basic rights are more and more restricted. The German minister of the interior wants to read our emails, arrest people in order to prevent them from taking part in possibly violent actions and watch everybody whenever he feels that "security" is in danger. I wonder how many laws and regulations the courts have to stop until this guy is finally sent to retirement.
