This is an ‘html-only’ version of Scribblings with no database behind it. This means it is not possible to search it. I am working on a new version with which I am hoping to eventually put back into the main site. The new version is here but please note that there is no link directly back to the main site.

Say ‘No’ to ID cards in the UK
No2id is supported by a diverse range of people and organisations; there’s a list on their website. The site also has a good article on why ID cards are not a Good Thing, won’t solve the problems which Blunkett says they will (such as crime and terrorism) and why introducing them will be a bureaucratic nightmare. If you like you can also subscribe to their monthly newsletter.
Definitely a site worth looking at if you’re at all worried about the slow erosion of civil liberties which has happened over the past few years.
Since moving the site to a new server Scribblings is not as easy to find your way around as it used to be. It used to depend on a script and a database on the server but is currently served as ‘flat html’.
I have some ideas about how to make it a bit easier but they depend on writing another script. I hope to get around to it ‘eventually’.
Searching Scribblings is not available at the moment.
