BBC News photographer Jeff Overs was stopped and questioned for taking photographs in Westminster.
(I took the photo to the right on a trip to London earlier this year. Nobody tried to stop me, although, with hindsight, my choice of perspective of the monument seems far more suspect than the usual tourist might choose.)
Incidentally, has anyone else noticed the similarity in sound between “terrorism” and “tourism”?
Terrorism is about magnifying one mediagenic act of violence into one hundred billion acts of terrorized authoritarian idiocy.
I wish I’d said that.
