More Surveillance in the UK
This seems like a bad idea:
Police in the UK are planning to use unmanned spy drones, controversially deployed in Afghanistan, for the "routine" monitoring of antisocial motorists, protesters, agricultural thieves and fly-tippers, in a significant expansion of covert state surveillance.
Once again, laws and technologies deployed against terrorism are used against much more mundane crimes.
