Boycott Labour's demands

Sam Coates flags up  Labour's demand of journalists who want to attends its election press conferences:

In addition to home address, home telephone number, work or mobile telephone number and e-mail address, which is already stretching it somewhat, they have just ask for:

» Passport Number (if you have one)

» National Insurance number
» Driving Licence number (if you have one)

» Your private and company vehicle registration numbers

»A passport style photo in an appropriate digital format

I've a suggestion. If everyone simply wrote back 'no thanks, too much information' they'd have no choice but to reduce their demands, or face holding their press conferences in an empty room.
