Opportunity Knocks!

Ahead of G20 summit, council told to switch off illegal £15m CCTV network

The security operation at this week's G20 summit was thrown into chaos last night when it emerged that the entire network of central London's wireless CCTV cameras will have to be turned off because of a legal ruling.

The Department for Transport (DfT) has ruled that Westminster council's mobile road cameras - a third of the authority's CCTV network - "do not fully meet the resolution standards required" and must be switched off by midnight tomorrow.

The blackout begins on the eve of the summit, when world leaders arrive in the capital and protesters take to the streets.

The council only discovered last week that images from its newly installed £15m traffic cameras do not meet the quality required under the Traffic Management Act, which comes into force on 1 April.

In an urgently drafted letter seen by the Guardian and hand-delivered to the transport secretary, Geoff Hoon, on Friday, the council warns its entire network of wireless cameras will need to be shut down unless the minister finds a way to give special dispensation. "This would have a serious impact on our ability to manage our road network safely, as well as impeding our community protection efforts," the letter states.

It adds: "We are seeking authorisation from DfT as a matter of urgency to enable Westminster to continue using its digital CCTV network."

Perhaps they're lulling people into a false sense of security as they go about their anarchy activities?

"security officials believe a shutdown of the mobile road cameras could hamper the G20 security operation, which will require police to secure the safe passage of dozens of motorcades carrying delegations VIP diplomats and leaders.

"Frankly, it couldn't have come at a worse time," a source said. "These are not just parking enforcement cameras, they're for public order and we've got the G20 world leaders coming. This is a complete disaster."

Perfect opportunity to assasinate Obama and the PM :) LMAO

A "false flag black op." is on the cards by the looks of it. An atrocity blamed on "Al-C.I.A.der" implicating Iran or Obama taken out, blamed on white nationalists?
Whilst the cameras are turned off, just like 911, 7/7 the Alma tunnel etc. etc, they can blame who they like. Either way the end result will be ever more repressive laws "enacted" under the pretence of protecting us from the lie that is the "war on terror".

Why do these cameras have to be of a prescribed picture quality??

To be admissable in court? OK so they won't be admissable in court BUT they will still provide "intelligence".

I'm with GW on this, it stinks!
