    Just as an update to an earlier thread on here, this just in the BBC News Magazine:

    A very sad state of affairs. I'm under the impression that terrorists set out to interfere with our way of life - in so many ways, we let them.

    This is really getting to be a PITA. The biggest problem is police officers and security guards that are ignorant of what the law actually is. The practical aspect of the problem isn't the law - it's the hassles that are associated with challenging the ignorance of the law by those law enforcement officials. In confrontations like those, you can insist on your rights, and you'll probably win in the end, but it will likely take a trip "downtown" to get it sorted out.

    I think it's gotten ridiculous that they can become up in arms about someone taking a photograph when we are constantly being filmed in public places.

    This is getting silly now, terrorism is the reason for everything being banned now.

    iBlue has hit it on the head - real double standards, with numerous CCTVs in UK streets and shops (which citizens voted for those to be placed??), and then God forbid, someone should take several pictures of a (minor) celebrity!!! SHE might be a terrorist.
