There's a great movie coming out on DVD (it had a limited theatrical release a few months ago) in a few week's time called "Taking Liberties" which shows how quickly our freedoms have been eroded in the UK since Blair came into power. It's mainly a humourous
film but it's shocking to find out how much has been done "under the covers" with no real publicity in our mainstream media.
There's also a rather nifty video that The Pet Shop Boys have put together on the subject of ID cards and surveillance which is currently playing on the home page of their web site at
(I think this is the point where blowdart pops in to make some reference to Barbara Streisand or Judy Garland )
