Don't know if Police Forward Intelligence Teams are included in your debate on Freedom and Liberty, but some of the tactics they use are questionable and could be viewed as harassment rather than intelligence gathering. I'd also like to see an end to anti-terror adverts that suggest you watch your neighbours, hardly building communities. I'd like to see systems in schools that use fingerprint technology banned, as it softening children up for ID cards and gets them use to handing out sensitive personal data without questioning the safety of it. I would like the right to peaceful protest restored, as I am fearful of what I've seen at climate protests in London. It seems in some cases police are misunderstanding anti-terror legislation. The kettling of peaceful protesters seems totally unreasonable to me. Perhaps better guidance is the answer. Hunting - I'd rather not see a return to it. I Hope you have a good time.
