Are the met now going to offer personal protection to those who they have put at risk of attacks by antis by allowing their information into the public domain?
You couldn't write it!!
Hold on! This isn't a BASC bashing thread! This matter was kicked off by a stupid idea from someone in the Met Police and the details disclosed to third parties are, directly, nothing to do with BASC. Although obviously a percentage of those involved will be BASC members and some may well have asked BASC to look into the matter. As you can see above with C Graffius' post, they have written to the Met and are seeking answers about this issue from them.I feel its significant that BASC are not taking the matter to court over the breach of Data Protection - this story should be all over the front pages, after BASC insists the records are recovered and that those whose data security was breached are treated as a crime risk and their statistics for break-ins compared to another 30,000.
BASC should alert MP's and the Home Office minister and demand a written apology from the MET commissioner.
So much for US being a terrorist threat with this plastered all over the internet and hacking being a forte of groups known to want weapons and presently confined to vehicles.
BASC are not giving this the criticism it deserves IMHO.
