A Government that wants carte blanche with personal information
I cant believe it. Theyre such a fine, upstanding group of politiicians.
The High Court has agreed to hear a campaign group's case against the UK's Data Protection Act, which they say leaves immigrants with fewer rights over their data.

Isn't it three times they've had their air pollution plans defeated in the courts, they've still to produce anything workable, but now they are banging on about wood burning stoves!?
I'm ranting, aren't I. I'll take my dried frog pills.
