At no time in the initial conversation was the member of our security staff informed by the man that the child in question was his daughter.

There is a sinister implication here that all men accompanied by young children are paedophiles until proven otherwise. This paranoia has a negative impact, not just on young fathers but all men, particularly those who show no inclination to take a wife.

Braehead's response, is lazy, defensive and unimaginative. It would certainly discourage me from venturing over there.

How are they going to respond when challenged that the privacy they are so keen to respect is intruded upon by their own CCTV system?

Well said Brigit

It pisses me off no end this paedophile guilt that has spread into society from those who are not. People scared to approach a missing child in a shop in case they're suspected as something abhorrent and God help you if you actually smile at a passing child and you happen to be male.
Then this clap trap from someone taking pictures of their daughter but not declaring themselves to the security men :roll: stop the world and let me off at the next stop....................

Scottish police praised after foiling Al Qaeda toddler ice-cream plot

Strathclyde police have been praised by Government officials after foiling a plot by Al Qaeda terrorists to take photos of a three year-old eating ice-cream in Glasgow’s Braehead shopping centre.

The plot, which detectives suspect might have been in the planning stages for up to eight minutes, would have seen a photo of the small child circulated to literally dozens of Facebook users.

FYI, the Braehead response page has been removed. Perhaps it didn't get the reaction they were hoping for.

It's more than a little distressing really, on several levels. I can't help but think it's all got to come to a head at some point. With just about everything we own having a camera built into it somewhere it's almost impossible to enforce these rules, regardless of how morally or legally questionable they are in the first place.

This, and hopefully the wider picture, is going to get an airing on Newsnicht, BBC2 in about 25 minutes.

Stop boasting about your 52 incher.

And what indeed was the wider picture as you say? Was the film taken by BBC or an official foim crew.
