Best bit in the Guardian article
'Gibson spoke to his MP, Emily Thornberry, whose offices are on the same street. But she said the right of residents not to become victims of crime overrode his concerns. "My priority is the safety of local residents and if a camera at the pub helps, then I think it should be supported."'
From Wikipedia: 'Thornberry was educated at the University of Kent at Canterbury where she studied law, and practised as a barrister specialising in human rights from 1985 to 2005'
On the evidence so far, I don't think she was very good at being a human rights lawyer.
The good news is that the android MP for Islington South and Finsbury is sitting on a majority of only 484.
