1984

So what good are all those surveillance cameras provided by the nanny state if they don't make anyone safer, deter crime, or sometimes go unmonitored? From Reason Mag's Hit and Run blog:

The Get Out Clause, an unsigned Manchester band who could not afford a camera crew for their video, 'performed' in front of a load of CCTV cameras, requested the footage from the camera operators under the Data Protection Act and then stitched the results together for their music video.
Tax dollars at work!

Fantastic story. Have you seen this related message yet?

It is a call to raise awareness of Liberty issues in the U.K. by calling upon all concerned citizens to make a mass donation (similar to what the libertarians in the US Ron Paul Movement did).

Magna Carta Day - June 15th!

Join the mass donation for Liberty at www.15thjunemagnacarta.org.

Pass this message on to everyone you know!

Check it out...
