So here's a tip for paedophiles and terrorists who are fed up dodging s44, PSCO's and nosey parkers : sign up to Internet Eyes and you get to use the police's own cameras for free, from the comfort of your own safe house. OK, you don't get to choose which 4 cameras, but I'm sure with a bit of ingenuity the global networks of perverts and extremists can aggregate the feeds into something more useful.
Meanwhile we await the recursive irony of reports that "there's a bloke with a camera in the street" from an anonymous couch potato wanabee hero and hopeful prizewinner, viewing him through, er, a camera in the street.
