Its funny to me that UK would enact such laws on photography only after 911, which happen on US soil and not in the UK, They didn't make this a issue while they were being bomb by the IRA for 20+ years.. I personally think the old wind bag (queen) is behind this, she no longer whats herself and sorry family bad acts photographed..
Section 44 be used against every citizen in the UK, and those who visit there..
Recent case is of a Italian Student, Click here to visit story. Here is another story as well
I bet this office gets off on harassing young women, (little prick just who do you think you are) Just because this office have a badge doesn't make them above the law.
Also it odd that UK Government have have camera on every block and now trying to place them in homes in the UK, yet they don't want their citizens to have camera's.. Big Brother in the UK watching your every step.
