MNP has already reported on the ubiquitous surveillance cameras in the UK, which can even record conversations. (And let’s not forget the large number of cameras to catch speeding motorists either) Well now, a senior police official in the UK has suggested creating a DNA database to help combat crime, starting with taking and catalogging DNA samples from every baby born in the country.

Sounds eerily reminiscent of Gattaca doesnt it? (which was based on Brave New World of course)
