Villagers and Pitchforks

There's a tempest-in-a-teapot in Britain at the moment about Google Street views. Google has cars driving around the country taking pictures along roads which you can see if you use Google maps. In recent weeks these pictures have caught people doing some embarrassing things.

So people are angry. Yesterday the good people of Broughton surrounded and harrassed a Google vehicle.

But here's the rub: Britain has live cameras on every street corner in the country feeding live video 24/7 to the local police. There's basically nothing you can do in public in Britain that's private.
