    But look how much they would save, video surveillance
    cameras could just read the barcode, as with number plate
    recognition.

    That would need two visible at any one time, one on the forehead and the
    other somewhere behind!

    I suppose a burkha might be the answer to stop CCTV reading the
    barcode.

    Hmm. I get mildly annoyed sometimes when filling my bike with petrol when
    they insist I take off my helmet. I can understand to a point why they do
    it, but would they insist someone wearing a burkha show their face when
    paying for fuel..?
