You know how Nanny keeps telling us that all these CCTV cameras that she has erected (can I say erected?) are all for our own good, and that we have nothing to worry about?
May I suggest that you don't go to Cardiff Bay in Wales then.
It seems that householders in Cardiff Bay have been spied on by security guards, using the National Assembly's high-powered cameras.
Five guards were caught using closed-circuit cameras to watch people in their homes and hotel rooms.
However, and here is the really "odd" thing, none of the security guards who are employed by the National Assembly was fired.
Errmmmm...shouldn't they have Been?
Doesn't this rather say something about Nanny's attitude to our personal privacy etc?
Needless to say, The Assembly initially refused to comment on the scandal when it was revealed by a local paper - the Echo.
It needed to use of the Freedom of Information laws to force the Assembly to confirm the five had been caught "turning the cameras towards private dwellings".
Tory AM Jonathan Morgan said:
"This is absolutely disgraceful.
I would expect people in these circumstances
to have been sacked as opposed to have
been given a warning. There could certainly
be recourse under civil proceedings
under the Human Rights Act.
The police should have been called
in immediately. The privileges of MI5 or
M16 to spy on people do not extend to
security guards in Cardiff Bay.
Those people who had been spied
upon should have been informed."
Nanny doesn't give a stuff!
