The dystopian fantasy novel that is today’s Britain

We know that Britain is an advanced Orwellian society, with surveillance cameras everywhere, and that the U.S. is not far behind. But now guess what. The surveillance camera’s in the Muslim neighborhoods of Birmingham are going to be covered up, due to Muslims’ objections. As James P., who sent the item, puts it: “Apparently Britain’s ubiquitous surveillance cameras will be used only to spy on whites.”

Here is the beginning of the story, from the BBC News:

Plastic bags to be put over Birmingham ‘terror cameras’

Bags are to be put over scores of surveillance cameras in parts of Birmingham with large Muslim populations, after local objections.

Safer Birmingham Partnerships (SBP) said 216 cameras were put up, including hidden ones, mainly in the Washwood Heath and Sparkbrook districts.

The cameras were financed through a counter-terrorism fund, but the SBP said they would tackle all crime.

Councillor Salma Yaqoob said people had lost faith in the authorities. [cont.]
