Because it's creepy and an invasion of privacy.
Yep, many double-standards of late.  Unknown tog uses long lens to photo Duchess of Cambridge and its invasion of privacy, while faceless and unknown authority types can spy on Joe Public 24x7 in the name of security.

Who is the skeptic: the realist who won't accept belief, or the believer who won't accept reality?

The police constantly moaning about budget cuts and losing officers have suddenly found enough pennies to pay for this pointless idea.  

I feel so safe not!!  If am walking down the street and somebody decides to mug me I am sure they are gonna stop and think, crikey I better be careful there is not a 1% chance a very expensive drone will see me.  I kind of doubt it, there again if there were proper patrols and visual policing I am sure we could prevent crimes before we have a victim.

When a government starts treating or thinking any and all citizens are potential criminals, then there's a major problem with that government.

This! It's not about the innocent worrying, because it'll be the guilty who don't worry. It's the intrusion of life. We all have private lives that no-one needs to know about. Nothing shady about that, I don't particularly feel the need to tell everyone what I had for my tea the night before, or what I bought with my wages. It's not about having something to hide, it's about the need for each individual to have their own little space. Plus the fact if I go out walking in the countryside, hill walking or whathaveyou I want to be AWAY from the information overload that modern living brings- I don't want to have spy robots whizzing above my head, no matter how high up they are, indeed the further up and less visible they are the worse it is!

And the riot vans that were purchased. You know the ones with the water cannons? There was a fleet bought not long ago.

Are they not entitled to tea and biscuits when on stake out?

I'd be more worried about the £122 billion on the NHS.

Why worry? You don't pay tax so you just get to take and not have to give like the rest of us ;)

I've often thought you might be fantasizing about 'watching' me ;)

Would the locks be to keep me in and stop me escaping?
