I just read that our Council is believed to be the first in Queensland to introduce CCTV cameras that can record audio.

On the face of it, you might think that this is innocuous. But it could have sinister flow on effects.

I was shocked to hear a story over the weekend involving a local Business, and the Moreton Bay Regional Council (MBRC).

After hearing the story, I searched online for corroborating evidence. From my understanding, this is the story of how a local business was treated by council, how millions of dollars of Rate Payers money was spent, and Council’s reticence to disclose what was spent on litigation.

A lot of what follows is drawn from an article reported in the Courier Mail on 18th June 2015.
