Blackjack,

Sometimes pampered celebs and their asshole attitudes just get on my nerves. Like Joan Collins who recently asked a charity she had donated money to give it back to her because she had become a bit strapped for cash. Maybe she could have cut back on her extravagant lifestyle a bit if she found herself a bit short of cash (like the rest of.... Wait! I'm doing it again! I'm off to fix myself a drink.

Artemis,

There is a 'Sod-U-Ken' campaign running encouraging people not to pay, but the way human nature is, it will end up with a hard core of non-payers and most others will pay up grudgingly. I don't have much call to go into central London anyway and when I do the traffic is so dreadful I usually take a tube. I used to like Ken Livingstone, but he's a fucking arsehole for introducing something like this.

I see it as a golden opportunity to put a stop to some of this nonsense. Apparently, London's meat cutters, who aren't part of the congestion problem anyway, because of the times they travel in and out, are saying "fuck you, we aren't going to pay". If everybody says the same and sticks together it will be a big step in the right direction.

As for Michael & Catherine: It's the American Way. Where once there was a "right" to privacy, now there is the "commodity" of privacy. It's true of everything now.

Yes indeed, privacy in the UK is fast disappearing. Anyone caught on the new inner London congestion charge cameras will also be screened to see if they are a 'potential terrorist' (and no doubt potential anything else the authorities want to keep tabs on). If the congestion charge is a 'success' the government is talking about taking Ken Livingstone's idea and rolling it out to outer London and other UK cities. Apart from the expense, civil liberty implications are quite worrying.

When they put up a camera to see if you entered London, so they can make you pay for that privelege?

When they pass a law saying that if you have a PGP key, you have to turn it over to the government in case they need to read your email?

Better have an eye to your own privacy and let Michael Douglas take care of himself.

Since I'm in a celeb bashing mood, what about Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta Jones taking Hello Magazineto court for invading the privacy of their wedding by publishing photos of it? How can an event be a private event when they make it a public event by (for a fee of 1,000,000) letting OK magazine show it to the public? A bit of having your cake and wanting to eat it. Nothing to do with invasion of privacy, they're just sore that Hello were crafty enough to get shots of it without paying. It'd be disgraceful if the Douglases won their court action on the basis of invasion of privacy.
