This month it will become illegal to photograph the police.
On the 16th of Febuary this year the police get the power to arrest, with the threat of ten years in prison, anyone seen photographing them, or more specifically any one who ‘elicits or attempts to elicit information about (members of armed forces) … which is of a kind likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism’.
Which is just as catch all as every other piece of anti-‘terror’ legislation that has beenpassed in the last 7/8 years. So now if you, or anyone else, takes a photograph of the police assaulting people/acting an inappropriate manner you are quite likely to get arrested and threatened with jail time!
Shower of bastards.
