Wandering in front of Churchill square at lunchtime, I saw two large armed policemen with sub machine guns. Now I don’t object to having more policemen because the Labour Party Conference is in Brighton. I understand that they’re a large and obvious target for terrorists. But that still doesn’t mean we need armed officers wandering around putting terror into the local populace. I mean it doesn’t take much for the police to take an interest in you these days.
Of course, there’s no information at all on the police website to tell you what’s going on.
