Adams quote no. 3 would justify Brexit. If there was ever an example of attempting to do the undoable, this is it.

Prior to the 1930's, Dutch municipalities registered people's faith in their administration. You know, it's convenient: you can share that information with the religious institutions when someone comes to live there. And of course you had nothing to hide, right?
In the 1940's, there was a group of people who looked at these lists with great interests. And some people found out that yes, they did have something to hide and the did have something to fear from the government.

Is it alarmist of me to be reminded of these things with this talk about registering 'foreign' workers and 'foreign' students in schools? It doesn't really matter which definition of 'foreign' you use.
