I assume this is the same UK where the police will prevent you from [COLOR=Black]photographing buildings[/COLOR].

But I guess it can't be all bad when your leaders are getting Medals of Freedom.

Serio;4755629What stops them from hacking into computers in, say, the US? Legally gaining access to the most top secret cases the CIA has? And i thought the US was bad about privacy, now the UK is following. Wait, did i say "Privacy"? I meant the illusion of privacy.

They need your permission to enter your house, just like vampires. And yes they're not always 51% human.

This is what the war on terrorism has brought the world. Why do you think bush talked about it so much and the leaders of the world endorsed it. They're all power hungry. With every day that passes I feel more like a bull with a tag in my ear.

Correction: This is what the terrorists and the “war on terror” have both accomplished, by already putting a tag in your ear. Both use fear to corral the sheeple. Nice to know that your at the back of the herd and can’t see the slaughter house doors just yet. :moodeath:

Wow, which retarded administration can pass such laws?! I think (hope) this is bound to piss of a majority of the population and in the next election this laws can be rolled back... privacy invading laws have gone too far already, taking it even further is just... insane. But I guess everything is allwed in the name of counter terrorism... giving up our freedoms for that cause is perfectly alright... :rolleyes: And the link to the photographer/artist is just as insane:

For Powell, this brush with the law resulted in five hours in a cell after police seized the lock-blade knife he uses to sharpen his pencils. His release only came after the intervention of the local MP, Simon Hughes, but not before he was handcuffed and his genetic material stored permanently on the DNA database.

Uhm, I'd tell them to fuck off when they'd become pushy about me photographing. I'd refuse DNA samles to be used in a database. That's just an enormous violation of privacy, especially since you did nothing wrong and intend to do nothing wrong.. the UK seems to have some fucking insane laws..

I sincerely doubt it will be. Asides from anything else I'm betting most people don't even know it's on the table.

Then you'd be in violation of Section 5 of the public order act and eligable for arrest under that.

[QUOTE=Admiral Donutz;4758853]I'd refuse DNA samles to be used in a database.

It's not a choice.

Realistically speaking the best you can do is sue for wrongful arrest, false imprisonment, etc, after the event.

Yep. Watch the merry sheeple frolick.

Yes, I figured it wasn'[t volunteerly but I would resist as much as I could. e in when the police officer started poking his nose into my own business or at later stage when they would want to ad my data to a database (when innocent!!! that's rediclious!!!). Just... dispicable!

this is just the labour government going with another of their great plans. if they use malware to access my system then i think i may install a BSD OS onto my computers and then set up another BSD system as a firewall to make sure they dont access me, hack me then :D
