London leaves Vancouver in the dust

Okay, I take it back.  Just when I post that Vancouver is catching up to London in terms of absurd surveillance and the whole attitude towards ‘reporting the suspicious,’ London takes a huge leap and widens the gap near-infinitely.  The Metropolitan Police have just started a new campaign instructing Londoners: “Don’t rely on others. If you supect it report it. Londoners are being asked to trust their instincts and report suspicious behaviour to help combat terrorist activity.”

This is bad enough, telling people not to rely on their communities or the people they know – just report everything.  But to make it worse, the message is accompanied by two awful posters.

Thanks, London, for making me seem like a presumptious jackass.
