Actually, if you are going to rob a bank, you will steal somebody else's car for the job.

Just as criminals learnt to use pay as you go mobile phones once they realised that the police could get call details and locations for contract phones.

So the monitoring involved in road pricing would not catch many criminals.

But the main point still applies. What we do should be private to ourselves.

What is fisking?

  • Jargon File: [blogosphere; very common] "A point-by-point refutation of a blog entry or (especially) news story. A really stylish fisking is witty, logical, sarcastic and ruthlessly factual; flaming or handwaving is considered poor form. Named after Robert Fisk, a British journalist who was a frequent (and deserving) early target of such treatment."
