UK to track every car

Every car. Every person. Every movement. One database. The mother of freedom is becoming the mother of the Uber-state.
Britain is to become the first country in the world where the movements of all vehicles on the roads are recorded. A new national surveillance system will hold the records for at least two years.

Using a network of cameras that can automatically read every passing number plate, the plan is to build a huge database of vehicle movements so that the police and security services can analyse any journey a driver has made over several years.
George Orwell would be so proud. Have you hugged your Constitution today?

Sometimes totalitarianism takes over like ivy and not a tank.

It gets worse.
