Rob I used to love to read but with life speeding up for me I just dont seem to have the time or the inclination any more.
My Dad hated any form of censorship, when "Lady Chatterley's Lover" was banned he obtained a copy and asked me to read it then pass it on to my English Lit teacher Mr Davy Williams, Davy was the only teacher I respected he understood my dad which meant he had a good handle on me.
I still suffer from low level dyslexia which makes me a slow reader and a pathetic writer.
The part of the 2005 anti terrorism act that allows a suspect to be detained for 28 days without being charged, making it the longest detention period of any Democracy. Blair not satisfied with that tried to have it increased to 90 days.
Laws that are rushed in for a specific type of crime have always been used later to supress civil liberty. When younger the Queen visited Liverpool, I was arrested for standing still and holding a placard that said "Down with the Monarchy the charge was "incitement to cause a breach of the peace" I knew the freedom of speech sounds good but the police are very clever..

I don't disagree with you at all. I grew up in Washington DC and learned a lot simply by being there. I certainly could go on but this is a cooking forum.
