One thing to bear in mind is this governments track record of legislation overkill [more statutes in the last ten years than in the previous 100!!] and thier love of control, quango's,quoata's,and impingeing on personal freedoms, from I.D cards and D.N.A on innocent people to survellance on your bins! ESPECIALY, if it means they can have more jobs for the boys,and it enables them to extract more revenue!
I agree at the present time something like this nonsense would be very hard to implement,but considering the stakes an e-mail is a very good investment in our[and our childrens] future. Thanks Nos for flagging it up.I will be snding mine today.
