The silent increase in London’s mass surveillance network, one year on…

Civil Liberties? The Only Liberties Here Are The Ones Taken By The Police & Security Services against YOU!
On 27th January 2015 the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, signed an order that increased the data collected by the police's network of Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) cameras in the capital by 300%. At the time no-one seems to have noticed. One year on the sound of silence is still deafening. Johnson achieved this massive increase of blanket surveillance in London without erecting a single new camera. Instead he allowed the police to share Transport for London's (TfL) network of around 1400 ANPR cameras used for the London Congestion Charge, the Low Emission Zone and other traffic monitoring. This was a policy tucked away in Johnson's 2012 mayoral crime manifesto.
