Social services 'set up CCTV camera in couple's bedroom' Social workers set up a CCTV camera in the bedroom of a couple with learning difficulties in order to monitor their behaviour, a new report claims. By Martin Beckford, Social Affairs Correspondent
Council staff are said to have spied on the young parents at night as part of a plan to see if they were fit to look after their baby, who was sleeping in another room.
The mother and father were forced to cite the (Human Rights Act), which protects the right to a private life, before the social services team backed down and agreed to switch off the surveillance camera while they were in bed together.

If you're going to do something like this, at least have the common sense to pick a smokin' hot couple. Maybe a couple of lipstick lezbots.

Orwell’s 1984 is now officially a history book.
The UK is a dictatorship anymore. Actual freedom does not exist in that country.
And quickly spreading like a plague to the USA.
Actually, if the state assumes responsibility for the proper upbringing of children, this makes sense.
Human Rights Council in every state in America now, look it up in you state phone book
Coming to America Rights of the Child
Heck, Orwell was an optimist.
This is a joke, right?
I hope everyone involved in treating these folks like lab rats spend an hour incarcerated in the local jail for every hour they imposed on each and every citizen, and that a film is made of all that happens when one is forced to live in a fishbowl, and played in every pub in town, and that a pint or three be bought for anyone seen beating the sand out of the garbage can spies.
When conservatives oppose the homosexual agenda, or the legalization of prostitution we're told "keep your morals and the state out of my bedroom.....it's none of your business!" Like we really want to see what's going on in other peoples' bedrooms.
Here we have a real example of the socialist state actually physically intruding into the bedroom. Imagine if this had been a homosexual couple. They'd be marching in the streets.
Do you hear an outcry from the liberals and socialists?
Neither do I.
Gosh, where are all the “if you aren’t doing anything wrong” idiots at on this thread??? This is just the next logical step to the downward spiral of red-light cameras, CCTV’s on every corner, GPS in every car to track your mileage so you can pay more gas taxes, etc., etc.......
Orwell was just off by a few years.
Sorry, wrong state.
See, the socialists can do no wrong in the bedroom - if their “intentions” are in the right place. After all, the camera “was” turned off (monitored 100% of the time, eh!) when the couple got into bed.
So, dressing and changing clothes and drying off, and talking to each other are not-so-private activities, are they?
Liberal doctrine: The cause is so important the means are irrelevant. It is how brown shirts are born.
Or an instruction manual.
I keep reminding my leftist acquaintances that ‘1984’ was supposed to be a warning, not a suggestion.
This is the doctrine of all collectivist ideology.
But NO! Don't you dare imply that "liberals" are socialists.
It is how brown shirts are born.=Center for Environmental and Regulatory AffairsIn the early 1990s The National Center launched the Center for Environmental and Regulatory Affairs, originally named the Environmental Policy Task Force
That would make a really good t-shirt.
"Be seeing you, Number 6."
"Who really cares about it being unconstitutional? This is what's right to do, and if this means that we have to go out and have a court battle, then that's fine."
Winston Smith takes it on the jaw!
“Orwell was an optimist.
That would make a really good t-shirt.”
Me and Forrest Gump.
so homo’s can adopt kids but a natural couple they have a problem with
sick and the invasion of privacy is disgusting.
no wonder I left that country and became American by choice, legally I might add
wai a long time .
I left that country with a smile on my face and now have my gun too.
I guarantee that a million conservative would love to come here if they were allowed but of course obama would rather recruit immigrants from Kenya and the middle east
Wouldn’t it make more sense to be watching the child?
I know how you feel.
I left California.
Isn’t great that social services people can be gainfully employed and still find the time to spend their daylight hours watching trash television?
If there were any justice in this world, a mob would drag the people responsible for this from their offices into the street, whip them bloody, pour hot tar and feathers over them, tie them to a rail like a pig going to market, parade them through town for a good pelting with rotten vegetables and dead cats, take them to a sewage pond outside town, whip them again, throw them in the sh!t, and warn them that they would be shot dead on sight if they ever set foot in the city again.
So you would go easy on them?
Ridiculous. What is this world coming to...?
What makes sense to me is for the state to stop assuming responsibility for the proper upbringing of children.
