ID Cards Are Bollocks

ID Cards Are Bollocks
Almost exactly three years ago to the day, I wrote:

"The IT requirements, necessary to effectively manage the huge database envisaged by Nanny, are not feasible. No IT project implemented by politicians, of any party, has ever worked properly or met budget."

Over the past month or so, the media reports that:

-25 million data records have been lost by HMRC

-Learner driver details have been lost

-Pension details have been lost

-NHS records have been lost etc the list will keep growing

The connection?

-They are all data records stored on Nanny's IT systems

-All the data records are the responsibility of Nanny

-These are the private data records of individuals

-Nanny's IT systems have failed

Given the above, how the fark can we trust Nanny to protect the data records that she intends to take from us in order to set up her ID card system?

The people who have had their personal security compromised in this way by Nanny should take a class action against her for negligence.

  1. The short answer is that we can't trust Nanny to look after our personal data.

    The problem with taking a class action to sue Nanny is that we are suing ourselves....Nanny has no money of her own, she just has what she can extract from us via taxation, so if we sue Nanny, we sue ourselves, we shall pay. It is a similar situation we have achieved in insurance claims for personal injury etc....All our policies have rocketed as the compensation and legal costs are passed on to policy holders....Even Nanny has got in on it through her insurance premium tax and as the premiums go up, so does Nanny's cut....Kerching.

    tonk,

    One might see it the other way - all the money is Nanny's but she just lets us play with some of it to give her something to watch over.

    Net result the same of course.

    And this wikipedia article is mild in it's observations.

  4. Does any political party undertake to abolish the "National Identity Register". Have the Conservatives said they would close the Passport interrogation centres?

    The most frightening thing about all of this is, that Nanny isn't even bound to comply with it's own Data Protection Act - a quick read through the act (ha - it's anything but quick) and the majority of it seems to be there for OUR benefit (especially chapter 9 coving the loss of data and our right to have copies of our own data) - yet, of course, there is a clause that exempts Nanny from having to comply.
    They are the worst offenders of this act, and yet have written themselves out of it. Typical.
