I'm Speechless

I'm really tired of posting about the UK and their ever-developing Big Brother syndrome, but things are really getting out of hand over there:

It [Westminster Council] plans to attach the device to lamp posts outside houses, allowing inspectors to monitor sound levels. If neighbours make too much noise, council officials will


“At the moment the problem is that by the time a noise protection officer arrives on the scene, the noise may have stopped.

“Using the new system, we can leave a monitor in an area for several days. The idea is that we can pre-empt people having to call us — if the monitor hears a disturbance it lets us know.” Mr Harrison added that the microphones were also going to be placed outside bars and clubs to monitor noise levels and any disturbances.
A noise protection officer!!! Are you kidding me?!
