    Drone power

    So the police are being allowed to use drones to spy on us even more! Clearly that is not the brief but it sure as hell will be the reality! Is it not enough that there are cameras on every street corner without there being aerial surveillance as well? We are one of the most spied upon nations in the world and it is nothing to be proud of.
    Civil liberties are being encroached on at every opportunity and " if you've done nothing wrong there's nothing to worry about" is absolute bullshit and a cop out. We as a people need to say enough is enough and demand from those who serve us in government (yeah yeah I know) a reassurance that the use of drones will be regulated and policed by an independent body!

    I remember hearing a few years back that they were thinking of uses in crowd control , civil disobedience etc and were to be trialled during solstice at the henge , their plans were scuppered when the civil aviation authority demanded trained operators and slight path info

    Apparently the new "idea" is that the police will be able to circumvent civil aviation laws

    Drones of different sizes have been around for years it's just since that they have become more affordable that peeps are taking notice thanks to the antics of a few idiots endangering aircraft and spying on folk. There are set rules for their use and rules for surveillance. Anything they record in the public space on behalf of any public body is accountable and I could be wrong, open to public viewing unless it's national security. I've no problem with them being used on the latter as long as it's not abused. Anything which would prevent another Manchester gets my vote but as for the arseholes who fly over uninvited............


    Cigar for that man.

    I don't understand how a drone would have prevented the Manchester atrocity

    Covert surveillance on terrorist suspects, who knows what the secret squirrels had on the offenders there but every little bit of info in the war against such scum who carry out attacks on innocents is needed no matter how it's obtained.

    I don't think it would be unfair to say that she looks like she's had plenty of experience...

    I can remember, as a lad, a chap who used an ex-army Enfield rifle to shoot crows and pigeons in winter, over some allotment gardens. Mainly to keep his hand in. Until someone pointed out to him that the bullets - spent but still very dangerous - were falling toward the village of Hardingstone....
