More Orwellian Maneuvers in the UK

Justice Secretary Jack Straw wants to allow anonymous witnesses to testify against you in a court of law. I'm sure this would never be abused.

I'm trying to figure out if this is worse than plans to have CCTV cameras listen in on your conversations.

Does it really matter which is worse? Cameras watching and listening to us everywhere. Secret witnesses in court that you can't challenge. DNA of innocent people and children being stored in databases.

It's not really 1984. It's more "Brave New World." Help!
