Britain wants to bring in measures to collect a package of details from every passenger travelling on a European or domestic flight. They include credit card details and cell phone numbers. A working party of European data protection officials described the proposal as “a further milestone towards a European surveillance society”.
The History Book, Page 90, Max Grachev to Kat Polinski on why she should cover her lips with a scarf:
“The closer it gets to that date, the tighter surveillance is going to be everywhere in London. We can’t talk in my apartment because it’s wired. So is my phone. So is my cell phone. Most times, I’m being followed. The scarves are important. They’ll blow up the surveillance pictures and bring in lip readers, who’ll go through them frame by frame.”
