Keeping this short and sweet –

The Digital ID they are proposing is a slippery slippery slope as they are bringing it in on the basis that they can add any types of data that they want to in the future.

Furthermore it will be very hard to avoid as they will make it a requirement to do so many things.

I don’t want to consent, you don’t want to consent, but there’s things on that list that I do want and need.

It is why we must object now as they will take our silence as consent.

Maneuvers from Minsk?

Monday, 27 February 2023 — The van says…

Geography is destiny, but what does the future hold should Belarus enter the fight?


In the multitude of dynamics that make up the current conflict in Eastern Europe, a potential operation from Belarus cannot be dismissed. A previous article stated that

‘…recent rumors indicate not only a large buildup of men and machines in the Belgorod region, but also in Belarus. Another front opening on the Ukraine’s borders would open a real can of worms for Kiev and its backers, already overstretched resources now being taken way beyond breaking point. Some would say there is excellent logic behind Russia carrying out such a plan, yet viewed objectively, it would be madness for Russia to not follow such an agenda.’ 

This piece shall examine the possibilities offered should Minsk enter the fray, and what it may mean for both Kiev and the world as a whole.
