Thou Shalt Fear Thy Children

Or so say Enfield Borough Council.

The excellent Big Brother Watch are reporting that Schoolchildren in Enfield are following in the footsteps of their comrades over in Medway - the little tikes that brought us 'ciggybusters' - and continuing the proud tradition of the Spies.

"Nearly all children nowadays were horrible. What was worst of all was that by means of such organizations as the Spies they were systematically turned into ungovernable little savages, and yet this produced in them no tendency whatever to rebel against the discipline of the Party. On the contrary, they adored the Party and everything connected with it... All their ferocity was turned outwards, against the enemies of the State..." - George Orwell, 1984.

 If the thought of 8 year olds watching your every move, reporting you to the Stasi should you happen to step out of line, sends a shiver up your spine, then I suggest you read no further. However, if you can stomach it, I suggest you read the full report about Enfield's "Eco-Detectives", here. Then check out the Eco-Detective website, here.
