    Well perhaps some might disagree. With no party backing he won the first London Major election. Quite amazing.
    Having said that he does seem to have suddenly taken leave of his senses.

    I guess I'm a radical, but if I had it my way all pedophiles and drunk drivers would be shot. Catch them in the act, take them out back. End of problem.

    If taking pictures of children playing in public can be construed as a prelude to pedophilia, then taking pictures of women in public can be construed as a prelude to rape. and so on.

    Although I like the idea of keeping the kids safe, this is only a feel good measure and does not protest them in anyway.

    Strikes me as a very public way for the government to make it look like they are doing something about child abuse without doing anything at all.

    This does not surprise me. Livingstone is a hateful little person with many axes to grind. He hates cars, so he brought in the congestion charge, his next target is the Chelsea Tractor user because he hates visible affluence, he hates pigeons so he made feeding them illegal, now it appears he hates cameras not controlled by him, so he's targeting photographers.

    More seriously, when I am street shooting I never try to be unobtrusive, I make it damn obvious I am taking photographs. To appear surrepticious will immediately raise suspicion. If I wish to shoot something including people I always ask, A friendly 'mind if i take a pic?' is usually enough to either get permission or for people to move out of the way.

    Amen to that brother!

    Bob.

    BTW, I bet a fiver it never happens: typical Livingstone claptrap. He was going to make the Edgeware Road from Shepherd's Bush to Ealing a bus lane (I kid you not). Spent 10's of thousands of pounds on plans and "consultation" before dropping the whole idea which an averagely intelligent six year old could tell you was a totaly stupid and unworkable fantasy. Plus, The Corporation of London owns a lot of London's Parks and they hate Livingstone with a passion only exceeded by Tony Blair...

    Welcome to "gun control" for cameras.

    Instead of doing something about the people who cause the problem by using a piece of machinery in an inappropriate manner, we're going to try to regulate the machinery or restrict the rightfull use of said machinery by law abiding citizens.

    Wait until you have to register your camera in order to take it out in public.

    What a crock - I'm with Eric !!

    Please forgive being so particular, but there is a difference between 'loose' and 'lose' and they are typically turned around as in the title to this nice thread.

    lose , verb, lost, losing.
    v.t. 1. to not have any longer; have taken away from one by accident, carelessness, parting, or death.
    Ex. to lose a finger, to lose a dollar, to lose a friend, to lose one's life.
    2. to be unable to find.
    Ex. to lose a book, to lose an address.

    loose , adjective,
    adj. 1. not fastened.
    Ex. a loose thread.
    (SYN) unbound, unfastened, untied.
    2. not tight.

    Ah, that felt better. Sorry, but thanks.

    According to a psychologist where I work, the crime of incest is so common in the United States, that it is STATISTICALLY NORMAL!! Please do not misinterpret what I just wrote...incest is not being suggested as anything less than an abuse and a crime, but rather that it is so commonly practiced that it becomes "normal" in its' frequency. That is shocking and deeply saddening. My guess is that it has always been so....perhaps even more common in the not long gone era of silence about such things than now when, like driving drunk and smoking, it is a focal point of opprobrium. Children are at greatest risk in their own families...the stranger on the street is a matter of concern of course, but not nearly to the degree that is supposed.

    loose, v. tr.



    1. To let loose; release: loosed the dogs.
    2. To make loose; undo: loosed his belt.
    3. To cast loose; detach: hikers loosing their packs at camp.
    4. To let fly; discharge: loosed an arrow.
    5. To release pressure or obligation from; absolve: loosed her from the responsibility.
    6. To make less strict; relax: a leader's strong authority that was loosed by easy times.
    I think this usage is what Gareth meant in his title. It certainly works better for me.

    However, I think the plot was loosed long ago. This is only the latest milestone in the relentless march toward Ingsoc (which is proceeding quite nicely, thank you...is this Doubleplusgood or what?).
