This local story (not surprisingly) caught my eye.

I’m not sure if this is indicative of paranoia, incompetence, over-zealousness, or just plain stupidity on behalf of the local constabulary, but it is for sure scary. The local criminal fraternity must feel that they have carte blanche to go out and commit crime, if the police are sweeping the streets, arresting perfectly innocent people going about their business lawfully. Just as well the artist was known to the MP Simon Hughes, otherwise he might well have still been in custody (still well within 42 days).

Of course it’s not just artists with charcoals that legitimately carry stanley knives. I recommend that builders get to know their own MP just in case.
