My Zimmer Frame will have a monopod tie-wrapped to one leg. An comment from "security" will be reported as disability discrimination.

First I've heard of that but that was the second time on the Southbank I was stopped using a tripod within the hour. I've never had that happen before and I'm always down there doing long exposures. It made no difference that the friend I was with was still a serving police officer....although he just shortened his tripod legs and placed it on the wall overlooking the river I meant to contact Westminster Council and check out whether it is actually private or public there.
I suspect it's a load of tosh.

Interesting that the Terrorism Act was being waved around like some magical empowerment, but that those "quoting" it had absolutely no specific knowledge of the Act.

Encouraging that, having made their enquiries as they are obliged to do in the event of a complaint, the police were entirely reasonable, good humoured and well versed in the law.

The security industry needs to wise up to the fact that this is Great Britain (well it is until Scotland votes on Independence), not North Korea and we do not relinquish our freedoms lightly.

Unfortunately most security people are on minimum wage, have minimal education and are simply following the instructions of the supervisor. What these companies fail to realise is that they are misrepresenting UK Law, for their own purpose.

It is possible that this could be considered a fraudulent act. It is at least a breach of trust between the company and the public. Most PR/CR executives will not take too kindly to the head of security damaging Public and/or Customer Relations.
