CALLS FOR 'BIG BROTHER' TECHNOLOGY TO BE REGULATED AFTER MAN'S LOCATION IS IDENTIFIED BY SHOPPING CENTRE 'YOU ARE HERE SIGN'
CALLS FOR THE REGULATION of surveillance technology are growing this morning after news that a Tamworth man’s location was identified by a ‘YOU ARE HERE’ sign.
Kevin Plums was said to have been shaken by the accuracy of the sign which had identified his location to within 10 yards.
“I was walking through Tamworth Town Centre the other day when I stopped to consult a map I saw standing outside the shopping centre. Imagine my horror when I spotted the words 'YOU ARE HERE' with an arrow pointing at the exact location I was standing. I couldn’t believe it. I was very badly shaken.”
Proper busy cow Shami Chakrabarti said, “It’s clear to everybody that people’s liberty and civil rights are being trampled over daily by this sophisticated technology. It’s the thin end of the edge before we descend into a dystopian Orwellian ‘Big Brother’ state where posting on Facebook that you’re eating in Nando’s will give away your whereabouts to everybody.
