Photograph the Police and we will put you in jail

On the 16th of February, the Counter-Terrorism Act 2008 becomes law.

The law is expected to increase the anti-terrorism powers used today by police officers to stop photographers, including press photographers, from taking pictures in public places.

Yet again the threat of terrorism is being used to head this country further in to Authoritarianism. Speaking of which Mike Johnson has a great article on that very subject.

It seems that barely a day goes by without "the war on terror" eroding the rights and freedoms we are supposed to be fighting for.
