I get some pleasure out of OpenStreetMap data, and I think it’s important that we have unencumbered access to this kind of data and combat the almost monopoly that G. has on it.

As such, I have become an associate OpenStreetMap Foundation member for a mere GPB 15.00 per year.

Care to join as well? It’s easy, it’s painless, and it keeps their engines going. :-)

Let's see if other European Governments will ignore the report or they'' start reversing some of the silly policies they've implemented up to now.
