Breaking trust with the public

"A society that has accepted an extraordinary level of surveillance by CCTV cameras can probably be relied upon not to make a fuss about a system aimed at testing people on benefits. But why should the poor and the unlucky in society be subject to these tests, and not everyone else? There is something nasty about a proposal to scan the voices of those in need to see if they really are - especially as the systems are far from certain to work." —The Guardian
