This is using my image to push through draconian and utterly unnecessary terrorism legislation. Its incredibly ironic that the Sun’s rhetoric is as the voice of the people yet they don’t actually ask the people involved, the victims, what they think.

I haven’t read anything or seen anything in the past few months to convince me these laws are necessary

And he’s furious with The Sun for abusing his image in this way.

Today’s Guardian has his story. You should read it.
