Tories Target Envirocrims

Cameras watch you put bin out on wrong day | Uk News | News | Telegraph

Householders who keep putting out their bins on the wrong day could be caught out by secret spy cameras hidden in tin cans and bricks and branded "envirocriminals".

Ealing Council in west London is using the hidden cameras to catch people committing "major envirocrimes" such as graffiti and fly-tipping on main roads.

However council tax payers who put out their bins on the wrong day could also be caught up in the push.

The cameras, which cost around £200 each, are triggered by built-in movement sensors.

The council, which is Conservative controlled, said in a newsletter to local residents: "To catch vandals and envirocriminals, cameras disguised as anything from tin cans to house bricks will instantly email images to the council's CCTV control centre."

If you come across an old tin can with an aerial sticking out of it, giving it a good recycle is the only responsible thing to do.

And this is a "conservative?" council, the b****rds. What is the Country coming to?

Unfortunately, at the last election the electors of Ealing only had a choice between nuLab, bluLab and the Lib Dums. At least bluLab are opposed to that bloody tram network...

Be careful to wrap it in a black plastic bag and give it one minute on full power in the microwave first. If RFIDs can be destroyed that way, I daresay computer chips won't take kindly to high-energy centimetric EM waves.
