Thanet NO2ID in Dover

Dover NO2ID and Thanet NO2ID joined forces today by, fittingly, the Dover War Memorial. In beautiful sunny weather, and in a good location, the campaigning was effective. We once again got our excellent leaflet into the hands of the public, many of whom may be thinking about this issue seriously for the first time. A few people argued with us, but all discussion was even-tempered and mutual respect was established—we are open to dialogue with anybody. Not a few people signed our petition.
There will be a NO2ID benefit gig tonight at The Whole World Café, The Old High Street, Folkestone.

It's good to hear that the art of mutual disagreement still exists. Perhaps (according to some reports) our local council could do with a training day in the subject. The ID scheme scares me on so many levels not least of all the fact the government can not handle the data and there is a better way to run the thing - just look at OpenID as an example and digital certificates as a second example. In comparison the ID card scheme seems positively neolithic in it's use of technology.

Keep up the good work, we have far to much surveillance in this country which unfortunatly now extends to the cretins who run local government.
