This scares me

Seen today in Nottingham after a morning when I was harassed severely for taking photographs quite legally in a public place. What the hell is this meant to achieve? Along with the blessed Gordon's plans to 'train' thousands of people in anti-terrorism measures this is another step in trying to convince the public that the bogeyman is out there and anyone doing anything that 'they' consider to be abnormal should be reported to the authorities immediately. Any real terrorist should be laughing like a drain at the way this sort of official action is rapidly reducing our freedoms. Very few people seem to be bothered by the significant erosion of freedom that the current government is steadily imposing on society.
