>Labour council enlists Big Brother’s help in Glasgow.

>Glasgow’s Labour Council has been closing schools in the city, much to the concern of local parents.

One group of parents decided to occupy a school earmarked for demolition over the weekend.

The reaction of the City council? It turned the CCTV cameras away from the estate they were supposed to protect to film the demonstrators, which they had no right to do during a peaceful protest. If you were cynical, you might think that the Council was trying to stir up trouble which they would then film.

Shows you where Labour’s gut instinct is, though, and it’s not a pretty sight. Glasgow Liberal Democrat MSP Robert Brown has complained about this completely unnecessary move. It’s ridiculous that people engaged in legitimate and peaceful protest find their civil liberties breached like this.
