The Unanswered Question
What with all the hoo ha over Nanny's HMRC losing the data records of 25 million people, and all the finger pointing etc, there is one question that seems to have been forgotten in all of this.
Why were the data records of 25 million people being sent to the National Audit Office (NAO) in the first place?
Are not these records meant to be confidential?
What possible interest does the NAO have in the data records of 25 million people?
Doesn't this constitute a breach of the Data Protection Act?
Would Gordon Brown (who set up HMRC) care to answer this?
There is no way after this that we should submit ourselves to a National ID Scheme. The time has come to put a stop to this government's plans, and to rid ourselves of a now fatally wounded and dying Prime Minister.
