Twixt Here'nThere

A spasmodic, serendipitous, journal to show what's happening or not in England, Spain, Portugal and wherever else perchance to roam. Travel, languages, sailing, religion, sex and politics, living abroad, the Pacific Ocean including Easter Island. News from: 'Navasola', in the hills of Aracena at Fuenteheridos; Cabanas de Tavira in Portugal; the cool cool banks of the muddy Humber; and from Pedro (Coelho), Max (Happydays), Tigger, Georgina (my Georgi girl) and Theo and friends in the Great Wen.

A succint summary of why everyone should refuse to participate in the ID scheme - not a lot to choose between this and the Gestapo's/SS yellow stars for Jews. (Think about it! "Who are you?" "I'm ME!" "No, you're who we say you are on this piece of paper and in the records of the state police!")

NO2ID:stop ID cards and the database state
