Oh dear, oh dear, it appears that the wheels are coming off Nanny's much vaunted id card scheme.
Leaked documents suggest that Nanny is delaying her plans to roll-out identity cards to British nationals until 2012.
Well how surprising!
In order to initiate a national id card scheme Nanny would need to upload 50 different pieces of personal information, including addresses of 60 million British citizens, into a massive single database.
Given the complete shambles that Nanny has had recently wrt her handling of personal data (eg HMRC Datagate, lost drivers details, NHS details lost and MOD stolen laptops etc) it is hardly surprising that she has finally twigged that she is not up to the task of managing a database, and that the British people are not prepared to trust her.
Those of you who need reminding as to why id cards are bollocks, please have a rummage around my earlier articles on the subject: id cards are bollocks.
The wheels are really coming off Nanny's wagon, she may still be in office but she most certainly is not in power.
Please will someone put her out of my misery?
Now for a little sing along!
