MPS Banking Group (the oldest bank in the world) are promoting the construction of a massive airport in the heart of beautiful unspoiled rural Tuscany. Please join us outside the National Gallery to protest against this monstrous proposal.
Like the many times I have travelled through a UK airport over the last two years (see the first and second times), yesterday too I had a Special Branch officer picking me from the passengers crowd at Birmingham Airport to ask me some 'very important' questions; important to the 'security' of this country and all the 'free' countries in the world. Sometimes I pass through quietly; at others with a few routine questions. But occasionally, especially when it's a new airport or a new officer in charge, I get stopped and questioned for up to an hour.. only to practice in how many different ways I can say "No comment"!
