First, they disarm you and chide you when thugs attack at will. Then they track you and then? Why, it must be that pesky freedom to communicate that's at fault: "British Prime Minister David Cameron said the government, police and intelligence services were looking at whether there should be limits on social media sites like Twitter and Facebook that have been used to spread disorder."
I realize the UK has tradition and law different to the U.S. Bill of Rights, but this seems a grave step even in that light. C'mon, guys, Orwell was writing a warning, not a blueprint!
Update: looks as if there's a UK mask ban in the works, too. It's shaved heads and grey coveralls for the lot of you, then. Up, now, up and in front of the telescreen for Physical Jerks! (or Yoga on BBC4).
