A busy day today… this managed to sneak up on me… sorry for the late notice (but there is a ‘listen again’ feature on the BBC page linked below).

Remember Red Nose Day vs. SOCPA? Well, I can now reveal that – while I didn’t get answerMark Thomas did!

Mark Thomas – Radio 4 – 6.30-7pm

“And on Red Nose Day I had to apply and receive permission from the police to wear a red nose in Parliament Square. The police advised me that if I wore a red nose without permission I could be arrested for an having unauthorised demonstration.” – Mark Thomas

There it is…. clear advice from the police. So now we can ask them why they’re not prosecuting the people behind this.
