Big Brother - Nanny's DNA Database For Babies
Nanny's desire to record all of her subjects on a DNA database will not be mollified by ethics, decency or public outcry.
Nanny's best chum the ever hapless and hopeless Home Economics Minister (sorry Secretary of State for The Home Orifice), Jacqui Smith, has found herself trying lamely to defend a decision to place a baby's DNA on the national database.
Smith admitted that the child was aged under one at the time its profile was taken by police and stored.
I would remind everyone that, aside from the obvious point that a baby is unlikely to commit a crime, the age of age of criminal responsibility is ten in England and Wales.
Why therefore did the state choose to take the baby's DNA sample?
The most likely explanation is that the baby was at a crime scene, and all persons present had their DNA taken.
OK, that sounds just about plausible.
However, could Ms Smith explain why the baby's DNA sample (having been eliminated from the enquiry) was not then destroyed instead of being place in the database?
Even our "friends" in Europe think we are overdoing this. The European Court of Human Rights condemned the system as excessive and disproportionate, claiming it "could not be regarded as necessary in a democratic society".
Oddly, back in December Ms Smith said that the Nanny would take "immediate steps" to remove the profiles of children under ten.
So why then does this baby's DNA remain on the database?
To further expose her lack of comprehension of the basic tenets of a democratic and just criminal justice system, Ms Smith said it was her intention to treat innocent people with "greater flexibility and fairness".
Errmmm...call me old fashioned...but isn't that what the system was meant to be doing already?
Is Ms Smith suggesting that the system does not, at present, treat innocent people fairly?
Isn't that the hallmark of a dictatorship?
Ms Smith is a fine example of a ZaNuLabour frontbencher:
- lacking in initiative,
- lacking intelligence,
- lacking understanding of the basic principles of law,
- lacking empathy with the voters,
- a failure,
- disliking democracy and,
Vote ZaNuLabour for more of the same.
