I haven't had too much concern my country has so very many CCTV cameras - after all, unless you've done something wrong, what's the problem? but if they say i have to be microchipped as a Briton, then i will most certainly be pursuing German citizenship without question, which i had never considered doing. i haven't lived on my Island for 10 years now and have never planned on returning to live there, so i'd be losing nothing by swopping nationalities. i believe it would be resisted by this country (Germany) due to its history. they (the people) are against CCTV and it's not much around anywhere which is public property. there are a great many people who lived under the GDR (East Germany) and the STASI - i so very much doubt mictochipping of people would be acceptable at all. why it would seem Britons could accept such a state of affairs, i really don't understand. Britons could be microchipped like dogs in a decade Human beings may be forced to be 'microchipped' like pet dogs, a shocking official report into the rise of the Big Brother state has warned. The microchips - which are implanted under the skin - allow the wearer's movements to be tracked and store personal information about them. They could be used by companies who want to keep tabs on an employee's movements or by Governments who want a foolproof way of identifying their citizens - and storing information about them. The prospect of 'chip-citizens' - with its terrifying echoes of George Orwell's 'Big Brother' police state in the book 1984 - was raised in an official report for Britain's Information Commissioner Richard Thomas into the spread of surveillance technology. http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/news/...icrochipped+like+dogs+in+a+decade'/article.do What are you afraid of if you are a good upstanding citizen, you may ask? that unless i have a microchip i won't be able to buy food . . .
