Knobheads - Braehead Shopping Centre
Congratulations to the Braehead shopping centre for winning my prestigious "Knobheads" award.
Just ask Chris White who was on a shopping trip there and tried to take a photo of his 4 year old daughter.
A security guard told him it was illegal to take pictures in the centre, and a spokesperson for Braehead said it wanted to "maintain a safe and enjoyable environment" for shoppers.
It seems that the shopping centre was trying to invoke the Terrorism Act.
When Mr White protested that the pictures were solely of his daughter, and that he had already posted a couple to his Facebook page, the police were called.
They pointed out to Mr White that there were signs saying "no photographs", and allegedly threatened to take away Mr White's phone.
Mr White has now launched a Facebook campaign to boycott the shopping centre, feel free to pop over to the campaign page.
Oddly enough, since the fuss became public, Capital Shopping Centres Group PLC (who own the centre) have confirmed that they will be changing the photography policy at the 11 directly owned centres and that at the other 3 centres, which are owned in partnership with other companies, they will be discussing with their partners the policy change and recommending that it be adopted.
