Stop!

Picture by Sam Coates

Sam was on a public road in London, John Adam Street, parallel to the Strand, where a production team were filming Peter Morgan’s latest work “The Special Relationship”. They intend to make it look like Downing Street and when Sam tried to take a snap of the scene he was threatened with the police.

Not remotely similar to my experience 16 months ago?

Of course it is, and we should all cry “Stop!” before the interfering busy bodies in society ensure that nothing of our age is recorded for future generations to enjoy.

Ironically, seeing as they were making another film about Tony and Cherie Blair and their relationships with American Presidents, the incident (if filmed) would have added a touch of realism and reminded future generations of the way in which NuLabour have relentlessly removed civil liberties from our island population since the inception of the TWAT (The War Against Terror) under the urging of G. W. Bush.
