    Welcome to the UK

    Anti-terror police defend campaign targeting suspicious behaviour of people with cameras (Amateur Photograper, March 3rd)

    In order to successfully export democracy to an incredulous world, you must first subjugate your own citizenry. Super.

    Re: Welcome to the UK

    Happy days... the last time I was stopped by a security guard (just last week in Meadowhall) I was pretty scornful and disgusted at the whole imposition. I'm getting fed up of this nanny state - time to stand up and protest!

    Kind Regards

    Brian

    This is a truly sad direction.

    Perhaps Brian, next time you go to meadowhall you should sport the same attire as in your avatar!

    I'm blatantly taking photographs in the street now. I know my rights well.

    We have needed one since F. D. Roosevelt for sure.
    Take pictures wherever you want whilst on public property and dare them. I have been doing that for many years.

    I Also march right past those inspectors who want to check my newly purchased parcels.
    They would have to arrest me first.
    I embarrass my children, but I tell them that one sure way to lose a right is to voluntarily to surrender it.
