UK PLC to get Smart Tags

Moon23 is scared that his reputation may be transmitted wherever he goes via a network of thousands of electronic sensor devices (Already his Marks & Spencers trousers came with a Smart Tag™). Although there maybe some benefit in having a shirt that tells you when you stink or a toilet that tells you to cut down on caffeine  or wipe your arse, personally I would find such gadgets intensely annoying. Of course companies and governments will love this as it will allow them to track their slave underlings throughout their dull lives to ensure they get optimization of productivity/compliance. Carrying a New-labour ID card will seem a quant old fashioned past-time in comparison to the surveillance potential that the predicted 1 million sensors per person will yield.
