I woke up this morning to the Today show on BBC Radio 4. I can’t remember the exact context of the term, but I remember hearing the phrase “guided society” being used in connection with the added levels of control that we now live with.

It made me shiver.

Who will do the guiding? I suspect that ID cards, which we will all have for our own protection of course, will be central to the concepts of a “guided society”. What’s happened?!!
