....this delightful card from the UK Border Agency (brought to you by the good people of Ekklesia). I don't know about you, but I just can't enjoy the festive season unless I'm sure our borders are tightly policed and those pesky foreigners are being targeted with the latest biometric technology. I hope Santa remembers his ID card!

Sign the petition: save our Freedom of Information

The UK government is running a secretive unit inside Michael Gove’s Cabinet Office that’s accused of ‘blacklisting’ journalists and hiding ‘sensitive’ information from the public. Experts say they’re breaking the law – and it’s an assault on our right to know what our government is doing.

We’re not going to let it stand. We’re launching a legal battle – but we also need a huge public outcry, showing that thousands back our call for transparency. Will you add your name?

Who is bankrolling Britain's democracy? Which groups shape the stories we see in the press; which voices are silenced, and why? Sign up here to find out.
