I spent yesterday in a communist country bordering the EU. In order to get round indifference by the miserable conscript who has unlimited powers to create diffcuIties which are of his or her own fabrication it is recommneded to offer an inducement. You know what I mean, nudge, nudge, wink, wink comrade. 10 USD per soldier seems to lubricate the machinery and lift the barrier, or a set of 2 of them to be precise. Had this been a business trip would the Act have rendered a passenger on the bus liable to prosecution for failing to grass up the tour guide or is the tour guide himself guilt of a heinous crime? If so, is it better to do nothing and spend the rest of the month in a snaking mile long queue of vehicles?
