London Metropolitan Police lose the plot. Afraid I can't find this yet on the web, so I'll type it out. In the news section in this weeks AP in the UK, Photographers face a fresh crackdown on their right to take pictures in public as a result of new measures designed to clampdown on paedophiles. London Mayor Ken Livingston - in co-operation with the metropolitan Police- has warned parents to vigilant about strangers taking pictures of children using digital cameras and camera phones in London's parks and other public areas. The mayors office told us that it plans to erect warning signs in the Greater London Authority-owned property. This includes Trafalgar Square. AP has learnt that Livingston also wants to put up signs elsewhere in London after discussing this with councils and private landowners. For more on this highly controversial move, read next weeks AP news (11 June). What do you think? I think this is absolutely outrageous, and incredibly stupid and naive, not to mention very dangerous.
