Benedict has just held up a 4 page statement on democracy and civil liberties being eroded. He certainly has an audience for it! #setlock/ Via
“Questions we have a right to ask in a democracy - Cameron, Theresa May, GCHQ, teachers, parents, each other …..”
“Hard drives smashed, journalists detained at airports…… Democracy?”
“Schedule 7 Prior restraint - is this erosion of civil liberties winning the war on terror…..?”
“What do they not want you to know? And how did they get to know it? Does the exposure of their techniques cause a threat to our security or does it just cause them embarrassment…?”
He is getting political now… #setlock
Next one… @cumberbatchweb
Here are the other messages… (Taken from a digital camera) @cumberbatchweb
Cumberbatch appeared to be referencing the recent detention of journalist Glenn Greenwald’s partner and the destruction of computer equipment containing information that had been leaked to The Guardian from Edward Snowden.
Benedict held up political message @the paps and then apologised to us, saying “don’t worry, it’s for the paps! Thanks for coming!” #Setlock/ Via
