Why this Blog?

A place where I can lament the changing times; for eccentric comments on current affairs and for unfashionable views, expressed I hope, in cogent style; also occasional cris de coeur largely concerned, I regret to say, with myself.


I welcome your comments, so do please write. Please note however that all comments are moderated prior to publication. Whilst I fully appreciate that life can be frustrating, nevertheless, abuse, SMS language and illiteracy will not be tolerated!

I expressed a degree of outrage at the British Government's plans to capture every portable phone message, every text message, every instant messenger conversation, every webclick.

Now having seen this video, I feel that the plans are just part of a terrifying "jigsaw puzzle" which, when completed, will mean the absolute end of personal privacy.

The video is in French, but I am sure that all will be clear when you watch it. It concerns RFID - Radio Frequency Identification.

Coming soon to your town - if it isn't there already...

Until the next time.

Extra - Extra - Extra!

It seems that I have been asleep: please read this item - from 2004
