    Epic Nose Guy, over 2yrs on, still used in newsmedia civil liberty arguments

    The Epic Nose Guy incident from 2008 gets a mention in this article on scarificing liberties for "the war on terror"

    Sacrificing our liberties won't win the war against terror
    Use the justice system against terror suspects
    – don't corrupt it by criminalising us all, argues Dominic Raab

    the relevant snippet....
    Prretty amazing that this incident is still being used by newsmedia in civil liberty arguments as a principle for doing the right thing. Nose Guy was indeed epic.

    Wonder if the guy is still around watching us.

    Hello Epic Nose Guy if you are (waving to you), bet you didn't expect to still be talked of two, nearly three years on hey?

    Another mention of the Epic Nose Guy in this UK Guardian article today (about the lack of mention of a defined fundamental right to peacefully protest in the UK protection of freedoms bill).


    The coalition's stance on peaceful protest exposes its inherent frailty
    The reforms are welcome, but it is hard to see Conservatives allowing peaceful protests in, say, shopping centres

    Anybody have a link to the actual case file?

    The charges against Epic Nose Guy were tossed out by the Crown Prosecution Service so there wasn't a case.
    The forum links in OP will give you all the history, news media and dox that are available.

    The Epic Nose Guy incident is still being brought up as an important marker in the history of the fight for freedom of speech.
    This is an article on changes in UK legislation to remove the word "insulting" from section 5 of the Public Order Act.
