    Tesco.... Big brother is watching you.

    While we have seen general surveillance moving inexorably towards the book and film of "1984, Big Brother" we are now going to see Tesco placing facial recognition cameras at every checkout so that they can scan your face and tell if you are young, old, male or female, and to put this information together with what you have been buying.

    All of this scanned information is going to be added to the information they get from your loyalty card in order to better target you with their marketing systems.

    Read more on this from The Independent newspaper, online HERE.




    Well folks, what do you think about this then ?

    I don't think that anybody is going to be bothered by this as we are getting used to being recorded on video just about everywhere we go these days.

    It's attitudes like that that allow the government to increase stealth surveillance to a level at very soon it is going to impinge on our civil liberties, if it does not already.

    That's the best reason to wear niqab that I have ever seen!

    And that, my dear, is precisely why the wearing of The Niqab should be banned here just as it was banned in France a few weeks back.

    In my opinion, there are many occasions where people must be able to see the faces of other people in security situations and that is the undeniable reason for banning the wearing of the Niqab in Britain.

    I know this sounds as if I want my cake and I want to eat it too, but even although I feel that general surveillance for all should start to be limited here, I still believe that we, including hard-line Muslims, when required, should show our faces for security reasons.

    ( Nothing more supports this than the recent incident when a wanted MALE terrorist escaped capture by dressing in a full Burka and Niqab ).

    Do you not agree HG ?

    Oh definitely, It is strange to Europeans to talk with women in niqab, we miss the cues of face and to a lesser extent, body language, so it puts us at a disadvantage.

    And, as I have always said: "When in Rome, do what the Romans do !"

    The extremist Islamicists are the only ones who keep pushing for the wearing of the full veil in Britain and yet, these very same people would not even allow any incomers to practice their own religion back where they come from.

    Why, even the Islamic Sunnies and Shiites are fighting a war of extermination, ( genocide ), against each other in the Middle East, so why should they be allowed to practice their particular forms of extremism in Christian Britain ?

    Agreed, but the Islamicist are working on the basis that Britain makes exceptions for certain Jewish Laws to be used in this country, but the Islamicists want to go much further. It's time the Government had talks to make rulings on this.

    It's taken us off-topic a bit, though.

    Not too far off topic HG, as the CCTV cameras that are all around us these days are being used to try to spot potential terrorists and extreme behaviour.
