I also don't really think they can apply this rules to EU citizens... to be frank, I believe it is even questionable whether they can apply it to non-Eu foreigners according to European law.

Of course, it's very common that important buildings are protected well, sometimes even closed up. In China, for instance, it's not even possible to visit the parliament buildings for natives, not to say for foreigners. I even had to hide in the car when some Chinese soldiers drove me to their base to have a beer there

But I still believe in Franklin's saying: "Those who sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither" and therefore strongly condemn such a policy, if England really gets through with it. Terrorists won once more, obviously. Personally, I am really striken by this decision, as I consider London to be one of the world's most beautiful cities, yet never had time to visit the city's central part and westminster palace. I used to think I could do so next summer, but obviously, it's not gonna work out again. Disappointed...
