Making My Placard: UK Email Retention Plans

I’ve nothing much to add to this story -  The UK government’s plans to retain email data and rate online content will cost too much, destroy business, liberty and must be stopped – start making placards – except my support for any peaceful demonstrations that get planned. Just posting it here in case even one additional person finds out about the plans. More also from the BBC: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/7819230.stm. Off to think of a whitty slogan for my placard.

    Totally agree Tom. Have you considered joining your local No2ID group to fight these sorts of issues?

    Hi John,

    Good suggestion, thanks. I signed up for the NO2ID Pledgebank pledge (http://www.pledgebank.com/refuse) a while back but need to actually honour that and cough up the cash! Joining my local group officially would be a good idea too. One of my goals for this year is to put my money where my mouth is and actively support more of the groups/causes I believe in. Best get on with it 🙂

    Yes I hope to be more active in supporting things. Been a bit of a slackivist of late. This might be of interest:

    Worth checking if there’s a satellite event in your neck of the woods. I’m tempted to head up to London. We tried to organise one for Southampton, but just wasn’t time.
