Talking CCTV. Oh dear, more noise pollution.

So, Barking & Dagenham Council have gone a step further in its' fight against Anti-Social Behaviour, and installed "Talking CCTV" (BBC tv video clip link).

Now, councils fund their various initiatives from a budget that funds everything the council does. So how many school crossing people, libraries, or even hospital staff, have been either sacked or had their wages cut by this frankly completely stupid idea of a talking CCTV unit?

A sudden thought occurs at this time: One wonders how long it'll be before someone puts in a private prosecution for Noise Pollution against the Council for keeping them awake at night when the Council is yelling "OI! Don't even thing of peeing on the lamp-stand!" at chavs in the hight street after closing time?
