CCTV and Big Brother

There are some in the UK who fear the increase in 'big brother' CCTV surveillance of UK citizens as they go about their lives. I think that the most obvious CCTV cameras - the ones in the street - do not represent any such threat because they are not being monitored much of the time and in fact don't do what most of us think they do - they do not help in reducing crime or making us safer.
