Suspicious behaviour

When I first saw V for Vendetta I was not overly impressed, but enjoyed the dark prediction of where London and the UK are heading. Perhaps we’re one step closer. I’m sure many of you have seen the asinine Met Police campaign that suggested we are too stupid to make common sense decisions about people with cameras and that somehow the Police are effective on acting upon tips. I love the fact that one poster alerts you to the dangers of people with more than one mobile phone. I might have to report every single Gujurati I know.

Here are some responses.

    I like the Citizen Kaned ones the best. But they’re brilliant overall.

    Ah V for Vendetta – how I love the film.

    So why are we surprised about this again?

    V for Vendetta was pants compared to the original series written by Alan Moore…

    Christ, it’s like the 70′s all over again. It’s like the modern version of the Public Information Film…

    People in London should make the concerte effort in reporting at least 10 events to a local police officer every day: a stray paper on the sidewalk, a pigeon picking more than its fair share of corn, a tourist with bad taste in clothing, an elderly woman eating two pieces of cake in Harrod’s. No event is too unimportant or trivial to report.

    Report everyday like it’s going out of style. Let experienced officers make a decision of what steps to take, 100 million times a day.

    Hank, I’ve just reported you.

    Where the hell are the terrorists going to find a database big enough to store all the locations of the Met CCTV spy cameras?

    Reminds me of the propaganda posters in Terry Gilliam’s “Brazil”:

    Be Safe: Be Suspicious
    Suspicion Breeds Confidence
    Trust in haste, Regret at leisure
    Don’t suspect a friend, report him

    As one of those suspicious Pakis with two cameras & two cell phones I am looking forward to freaking people out :)

    Panic! Panic! You know it makes sense.
