The Bell Ringers Summary
In Henry Porters new novel, The Bell Ringers, England in the near future appears largely unchanged. There are concerns over the threat of terrorism, the press is feisty, and the prime minister is soon to call a general election. But quietlyand largely unknown to the public or even most in governmentthings have become undeniably Orwellian: cameras with license plate recognition software record every cars movements; a sophisticated top-secret data-mining system known as Deep Truth combs through personal records, identifying violators of minor laws as well as those disposed to antigovernment beliefs. In the interest of security, the divide between private and public has crumbled. Freedom has given way to control.
