And let's not forget the 80 yr old at the same rally roughed up and held by police under the anti terror laws before someone eventually saw some sense. Looks more like Hitler every day
It's only done to give some more work to Cherie Booth QC, that well known human rights barrister
Absolutely disgraceful episode, makes one almost ashamed to be British.
Welcome to the BBB, better known as 'Blairs Bully Boys',
Overweight Yobs (Sorry! I meant security staff.)employed to stifle dissent.
New labour officially recognises the 'Rule of Thug'.
Some recovery software should be able to ressurect the photos the police deleted
Should have used film.
Are they allowed to do that?
hav'nt the police always been thugs anyway ?
What makes you think we "citizens" have any rights? We lost the opportunity to govern ourselves when we restored the monarchy. I appreciate that the Puritans would have seen Photoshopped landscapes of god's countryside as the work of the spawn of the devil ('tis true too) but I would like to think Oliver Cromwell would have appreciated the honesty of an unretouched portrait "warts and all"...

What use film?? Bugger it's not a criminal offence now is it - I'll be sent down for years!
ROFL! No, I meant... oh you know! ;-0
hmmm, England Our England.... by Vernon Coleman..... makes interesting reading..... dont think this sort of thing is going to go away, only get worse....
IIRC Police can confiscate film / images, though i think it has to be in relation to a criminal offence. How actually deleting images fall into this, is something i'm not sure about, but i'd hazard a guess that if it was done it shouldn't be done there and then, but later after review. My copy of photography and the law is quite out dated now, even the one on amazon is from '97, so is quite old!
Security Guards etc can not confiscate items, they do not have the authority (I'm pretty sure that this also applies to the new street wardens too, though they do have the power to detain people until police arrive - up to 30 minutes).
Anyway I'm not a lawyer so this is worth about as much as you paid for it!
ha ha, i hope he got out his image rescue software when he got home!
He is my local MP, what is the best free recovery software? I am going to email him
