    Default Ban curtains for greater openness?

    A United Kingdom Conservative MP has said that if laws are brought in to force politicians to publish their tax returns, in the light of the Panama relations, he will call for a ban on curtains to aid openness.

    This would be a good idea in Ireland.

    It would facilitate the religious and the general busybodies to regulate our private lives and to keep us on the straight and narrow. For our own good of course.

    It would be curtains for extramarital affairs and other hanky panky.

    10,000 years of Middle Eastern civilisation and the place is not at peace but rather in pieces.

    The English are very protective of their privacy and quite correctly so, IMHO.
    They say an Englishman’s home is his castle. This is somewhat backed up by European Legislation. (Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights).

    This attitude obviously does not extend to Northern Ireland, as far as their politicians are concerned.
    In the South too, most people seem to be congenitally incapable of simply minding their own business and accept too readily laws and regulations that restrict freedom and privacy.
