Big Brother Watch Fails To Convince The Public

Big Brother Watch is an organisation, which would have you believe that it campaigns for your rights. Some might say that it exists to support hopeless causes just to keep the employees going but that's to be decided in another arena.

It claims a victory over West Berkshire Council but not everyone agrees.

This relates once again to the use of RIPA (The Regulation Of Investigatory Powers Act). BBW seems to feel that it is outrageous to use CCTV to catch any wrongdoing. I must admit, I find that a little strange as the easiest way to avoid capture is to obey the rules but what do I know?
The most interesting part of the article is the subsequent blog. BBW is claiming a victory but all that West Berkshire Council is doing is pointing out that it is complying with the law. Our message here at Dog Fouling and Red Rubber Bands HQ is, however, vindicated by the observations of Jennifer H who writes: "As far as I'm concerned, use of RIPA for council investigations of incidents such as dog fouling are to be roundly applauded. This is a very significant issue where I live and there have recently been several prosecutions for dog fouling in our area."
Thank you, Jennifer, you have given us the strength to carry on!
