False positives

"deployments by London’s Met Police in the Westfield Stratford shopping centre resulted in a 100 per cent false positive rate."

Dear citizen, we are proud to mention some new rules that have just been made law:

  • Everyone will be required to go about their business with a plain facial expression, and mouth closed at all times.
  • Glasses (if used) will need to be worn.
  • Citizens must always be in front of a plain cream or light grey backround, and not have red-eye (if you're hungover, consider yourself under house-arrest)
  • Eyes must always be open, and hair must never cover your face.
  • Finally, do not appear in public in close proximity to other citizens.

These laws are for your own benefit, because errm Huawei, terrorists, and thinking of the children.
