    There's a picture from Sky News where in my opinion they've been a bit sloppy, they were broadcasting outside Nick Clegg's home and they've got the name of the street in the shot. This might seem insignificant to you, but virtually every other news channel/newspaper blocks out the street name when reporting from a polticians home, eg. any video you see of Cameron and Cleggs home, they always blur the name of the street, for privacy but probably more for security reasons, which makes you think they're conscious enough to go to the effort in the first place.

    In the background you can see his street name and even his postcode right infront of his house which is ridiculous in the day of google street view and given the fact that every video/picture of him in the news makes it abundantly clear which one he lives in. Is there anyone I can report this to to get it taken down or do you not think it's a big deal? I'm just think about those hooligans we saw protesting about tuition fees and worse, but then again its one of the first results in google images. Do you think the authorities are aware of it?

    You can easily access his details online. As he's a constituency MP, people have the right to contact him to express concerns about local issues, so no, it isn't that big a deal.

    My old school is 5 minutes away from where he lives :gah:

    Also, if you look at it on Google maps there's his name plastered above his house. It really isn't a private thing.
