Control has just told me who you are

After a couple of hours this morning at a Governance working party I retired to a coffee shop to read the papers and take on some much needed caffeine. One gem from the letters page of the Guardian is worth recording:

It's hardly surprising that police cameras focus on journalists in
demonstrations (Report, 11 March); they focus on politicians, too. Last summer
my wife and I stopped at RAF Menwith Hill to support the weekly demonstration by
the Campaign for the Accountability of American Bases. In the middle of a
conversation outside the gates with a MoD policeman, filmed by a police video
camera from a distance, the policeman received a call on his radio. "Control has
just told me who you are," he told me. Perhaps they've got the whole House of
Lords on their database?
