    I was at a birthday do in Blues Kitchen. Was there till closing time and then a large group of us went to Market House next door. I wasn't asked for ID and not sure the others were, they are regulars and knew the security staff. I could easily have been mistaken as the father for almost everyone else in our group. Maybe that explains why.

    Exactly. And that's assuming the bouncer/door person is minded to start telling you such details (if they even know themselves).

    Everyone should be worried about having their passport scanned in at a club and the details put into a privately run database. Doesn't it bother you?

    Data breaches and hacks happen every day and I have little faith in such companieds holding my data securely forever.

    It's not about age at all - it's becoming like the USA where you can be 80 years old and still only get in a bar if you produce valid ID.

    It's generally OK in the week and Sundays - places like the Albert and the Dogstar generally don't ask for ID, although Phonox and the Electric, for example, always demand photo ID.

    You've really lost the plot now.

    No, you are totally right - you/we are handing very sensitive pii to a bunch of muppets.

    Scan of passport / driving license would be very useful for all sorts of bad stuff.

    Does anyone know the name of the company providing the terminal ?

    Here is an example of a data protection notice from this type of product

    Doesn't seem wildly unreasonable.

    There was something of a Biblical cloud over Brixton an hour or so ago!

    I managed to keep just ahead of it on my journey coming from Chelsea. It was ridiculously dark for 7 pm and looking menacing but I managed to avoid the rain. Started pouring down five minutes after I made it home. One advantage of travelling west to east.

    Majestical Lips on Atlantic Road has just been closed down under a bailiff possession notice.

    Must have been someone else then but are you implying I'd partially lost the plot before ?

    No, I thought you were someone else for a minute. Not concentrating properly. Pls ignore!

    I saw some camera-lovin' all-struttin'n'poutin' bloke parading around in front of the cameras on Atlantic Road earlier and he's now being filmed charging into the Dogstar with an entourage of PLEASE LOOK AT ME hangers-on in his wake. Apparently it's some bloke from whatever that terrible cod-reality Chelsea show is.

    Surely that is an advert? Experian and equifax and use this line to get you to sign up for a monthly fee.

    Seems in my own case my details have been hacked and sold on because someone opened a BT account in my name giving both my address and theirs (linked addresses). So now even without me buying anything on credit myself I have the privilege of having my details auctioned off in a data breach.

    It's someone trying to steal the bike by lifting it over the pole - that or the owner lost the key & was trying the same.

    Or the bike is owned by an 8 foot tall guy with little legs.

    Where is best to get fish these days? I thought Ilias had a good reputation but haven't been impressed with what we've had from them.

    Winot I wholeheartedley agree with your viewpoint

    We go to Jeffrey's since LS Mash closed. Next to Franco Manca. It's actually better than Mash.
