Different Perspective

With the plethora of spy (okay, “surveillance”) cameras in Britishland city streets, this pic has often been described as ironic:

Me, I just see another typical IngSoc cock-up: the camera stand is too short to see into the window, so they turned it around to face the street instead.

That’s how Orwell got to write Animal Farm and 1984, unnoticed by the authorities.

  1. I listen to a lot of true crime pods casts. And I have learned a great deal about the British CCTV system. Despite it being nearly everywhere, it appears to be f***k-all useless in solving actual crimes.
