Britain has more CCTV than China

Britain has one and a half times as many surveillance cameras as communist China, despite having a fraction of its population, shocking figures reveal.

There are 4.2million closed circuit TV cameras here, one per every 14 people.

But in police state China, which has a population of 1.3billion, there are just 2.75million cameras, the equivalent of one for every 472,000 of its citizens.

Simon Davies from pressure group Privacy International said the astonishing statistic highlighted Britain's 'worrying obsession' with surveillance.

'Britain has established itself as the model state that the Chinese authorities would love to have,' he said.

'As far as surveillance goes, Britain has created the blueprint for the 21st century  non-democratic regime.

'It was not intended but it has certainly been the consequence.'

Oh, it was intended. Everything they are doing to destroy this beautiful country is intended. You don’t accidentally fall into a police state, or sign away the worlds most illustrious, ancient democracy in the world to a Nazi wet dream. While people, commentators, MP’s and media continue to make excuses for it, it will keep getting worse.

Denial is not a river in Egypt, it is a Road to Hell.
