To Orwell Today,
its 2 am here in urban dorset uk. awoken by loud humming of large md900 helicopter hovering 100s of ft over our homes. Discovered that these yellow machines operate from police hq at winfrith funded by grants of millions from the uk govt. Winfrith police hq are first police body in uk to operate a system of centralised monitoring of all its main shopping centres via cctv network linked to a control room staffed with monitors etc. No one seems concerned about the helicopters!
I've just gone and taken a look at one of those MD 900 helicopters. What a nightmare to have one of those things hovering around your neighbourhood. Nothing says 1984 better than helicopters:
In the far distance a helicopter skimmed down between the roofs,
hovered for an instant like a bluebottle, and darted away again with a curving flight.
It was the police patrol, snooping into people's windows.
All the best,
