Seeing sense

Against all the odds it seems like a UK MP has defied expectations and is showing some common. Labour MP Austin Mitchell has tabled an Early Day Motion about the harassment of people taking photographs in public places, by both private security staff and the police. Contact your MP to ask them to support Mitchell's motion ( is an easy way to do it).

After the Metropolitan's ridiculous recent 'be afraid' campaign against photographers this is very welcome, and combined with the petition to Downing Street on the same subject it looks like perhaps the situation may improve soon.
