"Experienced journalist Clark and author of 'How to Label a Goat' an excellent book about the idiocy of British bureaucracy/red tape has set his sights on the new British surveillance society which sees Londoners as the most spied on people in the world (via CCTV).
This book details his attempts at alluding the increased snooping while keeping his tongue firmly in cheek at all times. The book was written before all the recent cock-ups with lost CDs and laptops full of citizens private information. He quite rightly points out that even though Britons are under so much peeping by the government the violent crime rate is on the rise. The reliability of these cameras is suspect and he quite rightly points out that they are being lazy.
Mr Clark has written a great book that is both interesting and amusing. Unlike 'How to Label a Goat' it's no where near as infuriating. I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in modern surveillance and how effective it is in the UK today. It's a good warning to those who shill for this kind of technology anywhere else in the world as well."
