A new twist on the matter…

I have an enormous amount of faith in the cackhanded, blundering incompetence of the British state, and in the gormless, pen-chewing, internet-surfing idleness of its employees – some of whom may well be reading this right now when they should be getting on with being shadowy and malevolent; get back to work, if you are. I’m not particularly worried about the 4 million CCTV cameras in Britain either; that’s 96 million hours of footage a day to sift through, and I pity rather than fear anyone unlucky enough to be lumbered with the job of watching it.

I’m not unduly worried about the inexorable slide of Blair’s Britain into a cryptofascist Orwellian surveillance state, if only because that state would have to be administered by British public sector employees, and they’d be playing Solitaire or sending personal emails, waiting for 5 o’clock so they can naff off home.
