  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.

  2. Nothing would surprise me now a days.It's gettin like the DDR was.
  3. 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

  12. 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.
  13. :(

    Is this what people have fought and died for?
  14. EveyUK,

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

  15. 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.
