Never trust a Government databasePosted on July 7, 2011
I’ve written before about my dislike of the Database State, and a new report released today by my former stablemates at Big Brother Watch reinforces exactly why they’re so dangerous. Next time someone says “if you’ve got nothing to hide, you’ve got nothing to fear”, make the point to them that over 900 police officers and staff were disciplined for breaching the Data Protection Act between 2007 and 2010.
That’s almost one breach every single day of the last three years. With so many bad apples in the barrel, why should we trust them with the crucial details of our identity and our private lives?
