Tango on the Border

Posted in News by chrisfremantle on September 5, 2011

This is the current state of UK Borders: turning back artists, writers, performers.  There is a buzz of disquiet and anger, but it needs to become a torrent of vitriol against stupidity, bureaucracy and fear.  The video was highlighted in a short piece on PAR+RS reporting on an event which took place during a walk along the (open) border between Scotland and England.

I wrote to my MP ages ago (I use the web site Write to Them which makes it easy) and got an “Its all perfectly reasonable” civil servant reply.  I’m going to write again because the video and the writing is brilliant – more pointed and elegant than mine.  You can also sign a petition and read more.
