Passport error ages traveller

A YOUNG man's relief when his passport arrived in time for his holiday disappeared when he opened it to find a picture of a middle-aged man inside.

Girls, you might think Valentine's Day is about romance, but your bloke probably has earthier ideas.

Ears Clubbing in Ibiza

The waiter who won't get out of bed for less than pounds 1,000 (and other ways to milk the Millennium)

There may be more than 12 months to go before midnight on 31 December 1999 but if you haven't already been invited to the party to end all parties, let's face it, you won't be. There is, however, an alternative to staying in, watching television and inventing resolutions for the next millennium. You could go to work.

Travel: passport - Danny Rampling: 'I haven't got a stamp from the moon, yet'

In Tel Aviv I had my worst encounter with customs officials. They took everything apart - my records, clothes, shoes, everything. There was this backlash against dance culture in Israel at the time of my visit. I played at a party for 5,000 people during the clamp-down. As a result, I think they might have wanted to give me, or any DJ, a going over."

MICHAEL BIRKETT, our Vice-Consul in Ibiza, may have quit his job yesterday in protest at the rowdy behaviour of British tourists, but all across the Mediterranean the partying will go on - and, if the latest trends are to be believed, things are getting even rowdier.

It's a disgrace

The vice-consul calls them `depraved' while tabloids condemn their clubs as `pornographic'. Yes, thousands of young Brits on Ibiza are having the time of their lives. By Alister Morgan

Letter: Terror of a Bill

Sir: You report that the so-called Terror Bill will provide that the uncorroborated evidence of a single individual (a policeman) will suffice to convict someone of being a member of a banned group. Such a provision must be absolutely contrary to the need for justice to be seen to be done. This part of the Bill will make very bad law and safe verdicts are very unlikely to result. It has the side-effect of converting the police into a prosecution service and makes the dissolution of the Royal Ulster Constabulary ever more likely.
