"And who does not have a mobile phone or a credit card ??? The powers to be have all the information they need on you just from them ....."


Well, I bought a mobile in February after 12 years of doing without because my landline was faulty, but I’ve only used it twice. It’s in my bag I think, just for emergencies.

Never had a credit card and never will as I live within my means so I pay for what I buy by debit card/cash; even my car which I bought last year. If I can’t afford to pay cash, I can’t have it.

Never done any online shopping either.

It may be of interest to know that personal emails can be monitored by Police/Security Authorities if they find you to be of interest to them, so can read what you say, and to whom you say it so, if you put your personal details on the internet, they’re no longer private, and that of course applies with social media as well, especially Facebook.
