Sky & BBC banned from Westminster

I think this is a step too far. A BBC reporter/camera-man and Sky News have had their Westminster passes revoked because of footage taken during yesterday’s #piegate. As I feared, rather than address the fundamental security issues which allowed a fat & unfunny man to smuggle a plate of shaving foam past police and security tptb have gone for the nuclear option. How long before the public and other press are banned from attending Commons’ Select Committee meetings because they record something tptb don’t want us to see?

UPDATE: @17.22 #savegobby is trending on twitter and questions are being asked on the floor of the House:

@18.35 It looks as though Gobby has had his pass reinstated. Sky News’ pass also restored. More common sense and less knee-jerk reaction needed from Westminster in future.
