Traffic Wardens - Is Big Brother getting too Big?

Traffic Warden Big Brother
This is surely getting out of hand? Traffic Wardens in Salford are to wear hats fitted with video cameras. The cameras will capture footage of the wardens handing out tickets for littering, flyposting, graffiti and allowing dogs to foul the pavement. What the hell is happening to this country? It's like living in an alternate reality where the Traffic Wardens do the policing and the police are glorified paper shufflers.

Do you remember the BBC drama "Threads", where Traffic Wardens imprisoned and shot looters? Well, we're getting there, without the inconvenience of having to go through a nuclear attack. In a strange sort of way, it's a sign that this country is still big hearted and caring. John Lennon has posthumously changed his lyrics to - "Lovely Rita Meter Maid - **** off"

How long will these tough traffic wardens survive in the face of the inevitable "Dick-head" comments - at least they are now quite visibly what we always surmised !
