Hello Jason,

With the UK Government announcing that they plan to snoop on all our emails it's only fair
that we encrypt. We are all under the social pressure to conform in what we are allowed to
think and what we are allowed to say. The greatest form of tyranny is not the Stalin's of
this world - it is collective self-censorship.

Am sorry  to have missed your key-signing party - having just got out of hospital - so I
hope you have another one (with a beer) soon
