Blog2008 ≫ Fareham plays its part in the war on tourism

A local story that was doing the rounds yesterday1 about a couple being banned from Fareham shopping centre for life (for taking photos of their grandchildren) was picked up by Boing Boing2. Apparently the guard who threw them out said they posed a terror threat, I suspect he thought they were nonces but was afeared of starting another angry mob so thought the terror card was a safer one to play. Anyway, as someone on Boing Boing3 points out, terrorists would be better off downloading the building plans4 instead of relying on someone's holiday snaps.

Our snow had all gone by the time I got home yesterday.

Thanks to Ro for the Boing Boing3 link.
