    Has anyone been there, or would go given the chance?
    Can you trust a narrative like Escape from Camp 14?
    Better to keep your mouth shut, of course.
    Train journeys don't seem too bad.

    I'm asking this because here in the UK we seem to be losing our freedom.
    We are under ever more surveillance and are subjected to the most irritating announcements and propaganda.

    I'd start worrying if they decide to rename the place "Airstrip One".


    There are no paradoxes in relativity, just people's misunderstandings of it.

    I would suggest that candidates for parliament should campaign against such measures.

    Most of the newspapers (if they can still be called that) in the UK appear to have become willing mouthpieces for government propaganda and lies.

    I guess people get the government they deserve based on the newspapers they buy.
