Is an Englishman (and woman)'s home still their castle? It seems that Britons' biggest privacy concerns relate to government surveillance of their household activities, including relatively mundane matters such as rubbish disposal.
The Daily Telegraph lead story today reveals that 3 million wheelie bins have already been deployed by local councils to support the tracking of levels of household waste. Personally I am more concerned about surveillance of my location (via CCTV and mobile phones), communication patterns (via the data retention regulations), website visits (via the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act) and all interaction with government and then the private sector (via the National Identity Register). Still, all support for privacy welcome!
