YOU ARE A TERRORIST.Oops! I meant ?You are a Tourist'! See how easy that mistake was to make? Well the Metropolitan Police in their infinite wisdom have decided that you may want to report ?Odd picture taking?. Let?s see. You see someone taking pictures of their food, bus stops, train stations and major landmarks. It?s a Virtual Tourist Member working on their tips! Or is it? Consider yourself a suspect.

I have included 2 pictures that I have been warned verbally about.

Picture 1) The Police Poster and telephone number
Picture 2) People making Sushi. A policeman made me show him my pictures and warned me not to do in anymore. This is a Sushi place inside Victoria Station in London
Picture 3) A poster in a HSBC bank in London. An employee came running out and said I could not take this photo. The poster says ?Welcome to the UK?. Hardly.

I am all for vigilance and security. I am against stupidity. See what you think.
