An extraordinary story in the Sunday Times about the police installing CCTV inside people's homes to try an crack down on crime (I would link but Murdoch's gone behind firewall).

There is a brilliant contradiction in the article:

...police say they will collect footage from the cameras if other "serious offences", such as domestic violence or murders, are committed

Ok at least they are upfront about that but... then it goes on -

[Chief Inspector Martin] Kinchin denied the cameras curtailed civil liberties. "It's something that is done with the consent of the home a lot of the systems they will switch on when they leave the house and switch off when they're at home"

Can you spot the discrepancy?

And is everyone ready for the exercise and hate hours?
