Tell the police in advance before you post on Facebook and Twitter, says the government

What if you had to give two weeks’ warning to the police and your employer every time you wanted to post something important on Twitter or Facebook?

The Trade Union bill currently before Parliament suggests unions do just that when they take action. Ridiculous? Yes. But also very scary, as unions may be just the first in line.

You can help to highlight the absurdity of this bill and the two week notice period. It’s very easy – all you need to do is sign up to send two automated posts on Twitter, Facebook or Tumblr. Full details on how to take part are here.
