Surveillance camera dangers concern this audience

The IQ2 debate in Sydney this week, organised by the St James Ethics Centre and sponsored by the Sydney Morning Herald on the proposition ''Better more cameras than more crime'', saw a win for those arguing, among other points, that privacy concerns should trump the rush to more and more surveillance cameras.The audience vote beforehand was 22.8% undecided; 40.4% Against; and 36.8% For. After the debate 4% undecided, 76.6% Against, and 19.4% For- the largest swing in the history of the IQ-squared debates, I'm told by one of the proud Against team.

Anyone listening in the corridors of power?
