I was moving through the terrain of inner urban sprawl, a geography of sensory deprivation, a zone of duel carriageways and petrol stations, business parks, and sign posts to Heathrow, CCTV cameras crouched over warehouse gates, the traffic signals presided like small-minded deities over their deserted crossroads; the entire defenceless landscape was waiting for a crime to be committed. J G Ballard, Kingdom Come 2006

You know, you’ve got cameras on the road, cameras down the streets, cameras in pedestrian precincts ... It’s coming. It’s absolutely coming. Ian R Crane, New World Order lecture Liverpool 2008
