What on earth do people think the 'Broadband in every home' push is really

our favourite sites a bit faster??
'A webcam in every room' is more the idea.

Well let's all bugger up the system then by booking holidays and not
Well the information will be available soon anyway.
The immigration service will be checking everyone's passports on exiting the
