Governments And Data

Oh dear - the bureaucrats have done it again!

Reported in the Daily Telegraph today is the fact that Neath Port Talbot council has launched an internal investigation after an employee allegedly lost the data on a memory stick, believed to contain confidential information about vulnerable children.

In the same article it is also reports on the fact a primary care trust in Lincolnshire lost two memory sticks containing details of 26,000 smokers.

And the government asks us to trust them that all the details on a national ID card scheme will be 'safe'? Personally, I would not trust them with my Christmas card list and there is only ten names on that!
