More UK Big Brotherisms

The latest wheeze to come out of the Government. Universal road tolls backed by satellite tracking.

Every vehicle would have a black box to allow a satellite system to track their journey, with prices starting from as little as 2p per mile in rural areas.

It looks like more and more government policy is informed by the twin beliefs that

  1. Privacy is not important
  2. Government can implement huge IT projects

If either of them weren't true then there'd be a problem. Given that they both look suspect, heaven help us.
