GUEST,The Shambles Licensing consultation announced! (1356* d) RE: Licensing consultation announced! 10 Jan 12

An anonymous booking agent told The Guardian that police insisted on searching 18 performers for weapons with an airport-style scanner at a recent live show before they were permitted to go on stage.

Perhaps where police have seen to be involved in criminal activities, the introduction of such screening and being subject to the need to fill out forms for all members of the police, may not be thought by them to be a necessary measure or attempted to be justified by them on such flimsy claims for the measure's success?

The only success such measures have is in making things worse. It is quite wrong to introduce and to defend such requirements to any section of society.

The Commons Select Committee has recognised this, in the case of this form - but it would appear that it is the police who are in charge, and not our elected MPS.
