    I was fortunate enough to have attended the meeting last night at the LSE, which I enjoyed. However, having worked and lived in the UAE for over 7 years, I can say, from a first hand perspective that while there are well over 800,000 centrally controlled cameras to support the countries law enforcement, border guard and CNI, that people there never feel that their privacy is being invaded, but rather that the country provides a very safe and secure environment to citizens and visitors alike - regardless of background or gender - to be able to walk around the city 24/7.
    However, what I seemed to notice last night is that there is more a drive for individual privacy in public areas in the UK, rather than an emphasis on public safety and security for the common good.

    Well, I would like to add that, certainly there should be more CCTV usage as security is more important than privacy. Though it has a chance of being misused I still go in favour of security. We were able to validate this as we have seen the reduction in risk of security threats with our face recognition solution in one of the governed bodies. ( References here: )
