Shopping centre chiefs now encouraging terrorism thanks to Facebook
The world just got a little scarier. There has been a further development in the story where a security guard had (correctly) stopped a ‘father’ from photographing his ‘child’ with his mobile phone in the Braehead shopping centre near Glasgow. As you may recall, the act of photography was a breach of Braehead law, and when police were called, it was revealed that the ‘father’ could actually have had his mobile confiscated under the Prevention of Terrorism Act.
Now Capital Shopping Centres, who own Braehead and 10 other similar retail Xanadus around the land, say that customers WILL be able to take photographs in all of their locations. This appears to follow the appearance of a Facebok page, named ‘Boycott Braehead’, which gained about 20,000 ‘likes’, no doubt all from blood-thirsty fundamentalists.
Staff at the centres will no longer try to prevent families and friends from taking snaps of each other, although security guards will still be told to approach anyone acting suspiciously. We hope that covers four-year-olds who are eating ice creams (see picture). You can never be too careful.
