sadly, my husband and i fled uk in 2001 after many years of loving that green and pleasant land. Unfortunately, the government do not represent the people in any country that i am aware of.
my husband was arrested in 2000 leaving a protest site in crystal palace (london). he was accused of bearing an offensive weapon (later thrown out of court - it was a swiss army pen knife that is still currently available for sale in uk with a locking blade - they even returned the object to him). so, why did the police ask him for a strand of hair? he said no, they said, then we will forcibly remove one. he said that is rape, they took the hair.
no to id card
no to tony bleurgh
good luck people who live in that lovely land
peace and community and stick together...emanwela lowry, 14 years ago.
