Re surveillance systems:
1. why are they necessary ?
2. what built in safeguards are in place to prevent abuse ?

I'm not saying you have to be an expert to answer here, but I'm a lot less at ease with this. If anywhere I lived were introducing this, I'd want a straight answer out of whichever politician was pushing for it, if such a thing is possible.

We haven't needed them before, now all of a sudden they're essential, as essential as the police and justice system ? Are countries who're so uncivilised as not to have them so very much worse off for the lack ?

They are useful as they could be used to great effect to monitor people suspected of criminal activity. They could also be invaluable in ascertaining what has happened if certain crimes take place near them.

Off the top of my head I would say potential safeguards could be that only authorised people could access the data and misuse could be a criminal offence.

To be honest though, I don't really see how it's much different to CCTV and most people don't get upset about that.

Best and worst of Ferdinand .....
Best
Ferdinand: We don't really say 'theist' in Alabama. Here, you're either a Christian, or you're from Afghanistan and we fucking hate you.
Worst
Ferdinand: Everyone from British is so, like, fucking retarded.
