Jarring: Press is Not Free Today in London, Unless Approved by Ministry of Defence; ‘Attack is Likely’ (1)

Another security officer said my UK press card was not enough. I needed a Ministry of Defence -issued pass to view and film the Coronation Parade.

I tried to get a good view of the parade…and a brown-skinned man said my press badge was useless in obtaining any privileges just like the press in Britain was being subjected to persecution like other press around the world.

I’m astonished how quickly press freedom has vanished in Britain…my chosen home.
