Stephen's friends claim he was heading towards his mum's house in Eastleigh when he was picked up by police. ... Writing on Stephen's website on Friday, one friend said: "I spent a few hours talking with Stephen today, then I went to move my car and rendezvous with him near Twyford around 4pm - but the police arrested him before he got to me." Another friend added: "Police are overstretched and undermanned? Yeah right. If they can spend a million pounds and waste time depriving a British citizen of ten years of his freedom for doing nothing offensive then we are not as civilised a society as I had hoped."
Das kennt man doch von anderswo, daß jemand von der Polizei verhaftet ist und verschwindet, aber dies Verschwinden war reversibel:

Gough had been walking back to Eastleigh from the Cotswolds when he met up with a supporter, Augustus Stephens, in a glade near the village of Morestead and said he planned to ramble via bridleways to Twyford then down the Itchen Navigation to Eastleigh. Stephens says he spent some talking to Gough and arranged to meet him again in nearby Twyford in order to accompany him for the final leg of his journey but Gough failed to show up and sent the ‘arrested’ text instead. Since then Gough’s phone has been switched off. We have asked Hampshire Police to confirm whether or not he has been arrested or charged – first on Saturday and today [Monday] but they have so far declined. ...

A man who has spent 10 years in prison because he goes naked in public has told the BBC he will continue his protest even if it means he has to spend the rest of his life in custody. The former Director of Public Prosecutions Lord (Ken) Macdonald QC says it is not in the public interest for Stephen Gough to be prosecuted as he does not pose a danger to the public. ... The cost to the taxpayer of his prosecution, imprisonment and legal appeals is estimated to be close to £1m. ... He is currently walking from the Cotswolds to Eastleigh in Hampshire, clothed to avoid arrest, hoping to meet his two teenage children, whose childhoods he has largely missed because of the time he has spent in prison.
Some people support Mr Gough going naked, some find it funny, and some find it deeply offensive, but should he go to prison for 10 years, more than some rapists and armed robbers, just for doing it? Not according to the former Director of Public Prosecutions, Lord Macdonald, who told me: "This man is not a danger to anybody, he's a nuisance. He's an eccentric, as far as one can tell he's a harmless eccentric. He's spent around 10 years in prison, that's £40,000 a year. This seems to be a draconian, quite inappropriate response to his behaviour." Lord Macdonald believes it is not in the public interest to prosecute Mr Gough. "He's served 10 years, which on normal remission terms would be the equivalent of a 15-20 year sentence in prison," he said. "Very few rapists get that sort of sentence, not many murderers serve more than that. Prison should be for people who represent a risk to the public, not for people who annoy the public in the way that he seems to from time to time."
I asked Mr Gough whether he would continue to go naked in public, even if it meant spending the rest of his life in prison. He told me: "... I really can't see that this country would sentence someone to life in prison just for being naked in public. But if that's what it will mean I am prepared for that." Once he has seen his children, Mr Gough intends to resume going naked in public. He will ramble uphill, down dale and, in all likelihood, back to jail.

Es gibt eine Petition, daß diese nur Stephen Gough öffentliche Nacktheit verbietende ASBO-Regelung aufgehoben wird:

... Stephen Gough has been repeatedly imprisoned for simple public nudity. He has spent many years in prison now for his belief that the naked human body is harmless and for the freedom to choose his clothing. He is the only person in the UK for whom to be simply naked is a crime punishable by a jail term and yet he was arrested for walking naked yet again on September 11th near Twyford, Hampshire on a trek to Eastleigh, after just 4 weeks of freedom from imprisonment. So far as is known he is now remanded in custody awaiting trial - simply for a further breach of this ASBO. ...
