The Mail on Sunday reports that the European Commission has ruled that all new vehicles must be fitted with a “black box” for use in emergencies quoting a letter from Transport Minister Robert Goodwill as saying that “ the costs to the UK outweigh the benefits. Unfortunately, there is very little support for the UK position and no possibility of blocking this legislation.”Mail on SundayWhy stop at placing a black box in cars? After all, this Big Brother monitoring is for our own good. The wonders of modern medicine and miniaturization make it possible to implant a black box in each of us! Then Big Brother can take very good care of us.
