Seeing as how this is meant to be a blog about Video Surveillance, you're probably wondering why I'm writing about the race to become Mayor of London ... well that makes two of us!!
Actually being a Londoner myself, it did occur to me that having listened to all the major candidates talking about crime and Anti Social Behaviour (ASB) in the capital, I began to wonder what their views might be on the widespread use of video surveillance (CCTV) systems.
So what more could I do than actually ask them .... so I did!!
If you're interested to know what Messrs. Johnson (Conservative), Livingstone (Labour) and Paddick (Liberal Democrat), think about our capital city being the CCTV capital of the world, just have a look at this story
Who says Doktor Jon never does topical.
As to which of the ten candidates I'm actually going to vote for, well I think at least one has now probably blown his chances :-))

Having only recently started this Blog, I thought I'd treat myself to some time off during March, although if the truth be told, it didn't really work out quite as I expected.
On my main site, I decided this year to have a go at developing a proper Show Section
, for the forthcoming IFSEC 2008 major security event, to be held at the NEC Birmingham 12th - 15th May.
In previous years I've managed to keep it to a few pages, but this time for reasons unknown, the great idea has suddenly become something of an uncontrollable beast, with around 35 pages in the section, and more being added now on an almost daily basis.
It's been interesting, exhausting and frustrating, although not necessarily in equal measures. Mind you, I never mentioned the word rewarding ... the jury is still out on that one!!
