Man Arrested For Booing P.M. Blair

#1
From the London Mirror.

INSPECTOR Idiot of the Met police was on duty in Whitehall for Queen's Speech day. He ordered two constables to search Peter Murray, 48, an award winning male nurse, for shouting "boo" at Tony Blair's limousine.
They also took his name, abusing their powers under Section 44 of the Terrorism Act 2000.

yeah, but it depends on what sort of 'boo' it was!!

very dangerous in the wrong hands you know.

I know that as a serving member of HMF, that I am not fully entitled to all aspects of the democratic 'freedom of speech'.

but this is going way too far - their is nothing wrong with constructive critisism in a democratic society

I still haven't seen another source of this aside the mirror whom bought us such accurate and fact based journalism in the past...

Again though, without diving into reactions britain is a police state and has disturbing paralells with slides into totalitarianism.

Sadly, you should be using the present tense for that question.

Yes, I'm sorry. My initial thoughts were for teh WWII vererans who fought against "facism and tyrany". It really saddens me that this has happened again and that the Police allow themselves to be used in this way.

If He had shot him, He wouldve probably been knighted.. :lol:

Ah well.
Only if he'd made a loan or donation to party funds, remember merit alone doesn't cut it... :D

Lets break this down to its constituent parts

"Two burly policemen approached, searched him". Tthis happens thousands of times every year with the stop and search regime, to people who haven't even shouted boo - I haven't heard anyone here or in the media getting disgusted with those reports.

"....and took down his address and telephone number". The same thing happens thousands of times to people who are stopped on the roads. I must admit there are many posters on here who have whinged about that on here.

Finally, I would ask - is there a part of the terrorism law which gives the police carte blanche to stop and search anyone who boos the Prime Minister, or is it just nurses who boo Blair that are legislated for. Of course not, then it must be only 48 year old nurses called Peter Murrey who are fingered for this unique action :roll:

So, is it Blairs fault this happened because his government brought out a law which was misused by the police - or is a couple of twats who have more power than brains.

I don't suppose many of us here have been arrested under Section 44 of the Terrorism Act.
