Who has more cameras per capita UK or China?

4.2 million closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras in Briton. For every 14 of us in Briton there are 1 of them. And no its not the amount of Chinese ready to enslave us. It is the amount of UK citizens versus the number of CCTV cameras.

It doesn’t stop there.

The cameras now not only come equipped with microphones to overhear "angry" conversations and anti social behavior, but speakers will tell people to pick up trash and to not throw garbage on the ground.

But it gets even creepier. The voice over the loud speaker will be that of a child.

Also, the cameras can read lips and sends alerts to police if “key words or sentences” are used.
