A Step Nearer...

Read this letter in The Guardian today, enough to scare us all:

'Like Jenni Russell I have recently been made aware of the extent to which public behaviour is now policed in this country. A friend was approached last week by a police officer on a train. The officer asked what he was doing with his camera. Presuming the officer was making conversation, he smiled and said he was taking photos of the way the sun was reflecting off the Millennium Dome. "You can't take photographs from the train," he said. My friend said he was unaware of this new law. "No one knows until we tell them," the officer replied.'
