Tucked away inside today’s thelondonpaper rush hour freebie, this nano-article:
Photographers at risk from law
Taking photos of police officers could be deemed a criminal offence under anti-terror legislation that comes into force next week
Does that make your blood run cold? It does mine.
I took a pic of a police security tabloid pantomine with a metal detector in a tube station a while back, and put it on line:
Under this new legislation, I could probably get banged up for taking this picture, if that proved convenient to the police/and or home secretary.
I am really beginning to hate this government. Jaquie Smith, Jack Straw and the dreary rest of them. I actually wonder if they understand what they are doing. Is it possible to construct the apparatus of a totalitarian state, without being aware of it?
The sooner they get chucked out, the better.
