A Stopped Clock...

...that's Sir Peter Soulsby, usually appearing on this blog for the wrong reasons, but here, spot on about this issue:
Leicester Council say this is not true and city mayor Sir Peter Soulsby said he has 'no intention of compromising on the CCTV'.
Hmmmm. Irristible force meets immovable object?
He told the Mercury: 'After we have spent this much money on these sites there's no way we are not going to protect that investment.
'It's particularly strange to hear an argument about privacy from people who have chosen to live on grass verges and traffic islands across the city.'
Heh! Nice one.
Carlym Quantrill, who represents the gypsy and traveller community, said: 'All of the cameras have the potential to show an aspect of every single plot.'
She added: 'It's a great shame that people have waited so long for this fantastic opportunity and it's been messed up at the last minute because of these spying cameras.'
You mean the same sort of CCTV that the rest of us have to put up with? Welcome to the real world.

It will reduce economic activity: no more handling stolen goods on site!

Most of these CCTV systems are poor quality anyway but all they have to do is park a horse box or something in the way although they are more likely to consider some adjustments to the cameras via some sort of projective device.

And now there are even drones to help it along.

Drones. Haven't seen or heard one yet, it's only a matter of time. I'm practicing with my little home made catapult, I am a better shot without my hoodie up. More work required.
