Day 2846: Government Drops Dead Donkey: You May Resume Flirting By E-Mail (whatever THAT means).

Thursday:


Hooray! A small step forwards for our Civil Liberties as the Government offers "consultation" on its scheme to keep a record of every e-mail ever (presumably just in case Osama Bin Liner is either a Nigerian prince with cashflow difficulties, offering to donate one cent towards the treatment of a little baby with heart disease for every forward, or purveyor of the best herbal high on the Internet).

PS:
Does anyone see a PATTERN developing here?
