Passport required to travel from Portsmouth to the Isle of Wight

Yes, you read it right. This mad law making government is passing yet more legislation to stop Osama Bin Laden sneaking his way around the UK.
In future you will need to carry recognised photo ID (passport, driving licence or ID card), provide your name, address and date of birth any time you purchase a ticket to travel within the UK, whether that be by ferry, plane or train. Just think how many different databases there will be in ticket agencies, travel agents and airlines just waiting to be lost or sold to those who would misuse the information.

My only question is, what on earth will this achieve apart from yet more delays in travel?


  1. Im from the USA and even I think this is a bit like Big Brother!

  2. Nup.. don't know what to say to this.. it's beyond stupid and wins awards for unreasonable.
