I thought members may be interested in this new bill it could effect most of our outdoor photography.
A new House of Commons Bill proposes a ban on photography in public places, anyhow click on link, have a read and if you agree register your objection and mail this on to as many persons who you think my be interested.

Where could one read the actual proposed bill put forward in the House of Commons?

Even if something that restrictive were to actually pass and be ruled constitutional (or whatever test it would undergo in the UK), it's comepletely unenforceable. What are they going to do, hire 500,000 cops to make sure no one snaps a picture with their camera or phone?

Exactly!

How will they police over 100,000 new visitors to London central each DAY!!! What about camera phones....I'd love to see them take these away from the people. Will they confiscate each persons camera and camera phone at all airports & ports when they disembark? Me thinks fat chance!

Will they stop artists sketching / painting in town? Not a chance. Just think of the impact on tourism...They'd shoot themselve in the foot...!

This is an interesting topic, and I'm sure most people in this forum (including myself) support taking pictures in public. But honestly, it doesn't belong on a "Nikon DSLR" forum. If you want to reach more people, you're probably better off posting this on your local Craigslist site.

I cannot disagree more.
This thread is the first I've heard of such legislation and, from the looks of it, it's the first others have heard of it as well. It's not so "off-topic" that it hurts the forum in any way.
