A Big Fat Rasberry To Nanny's Child Catcher Database

Computer Says No
How splendidly entertaining and refreshing to see that Nanny has been so very publicly humiliated by her own Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF).

The DCSF has had to publicly admit that security flaws in its internet database (ContactPoint), designed to hold the details of 11 million children and teenagers, have forced it to stop work on the project.

Seemingly the "bugs" present serious security concerns over the ability of the system to protect the identity etc of 55,000 vulnerable children on the database.

ContactPoint, given the security flaws it seems to be rather an apt title for such an "open book" listing of children, cost us £224M. It contains the names, addresses, dates of birth and details of schools, GPs, social workers and support services of all 11 million people aged under 18 in England.

Here's the real is intended to improve child protection!

How can a database, containing all of the above, improve child protection?

Don't the dimwitted members of Nanny's government and civil service realise that the more data you store in one place, the more vulnerable it is to hacking and theft?

Another farking IT shambles, brought to us by our elected representatives!

This of course is the same government that wants all of our details on id cards and a massive database.

Anyone out there seriously think that this will work?

The bottom line is that governments and politicians are not capable of being trusted with IT projects, they have neither the understanding nor the time horizon (usually 5 years or more) to see the project through.

    It will be back. Nu labour, the sock puppet of the EU, will never stop trying to spy and control every aspect of our lives. From the cradle to the grave what an apt socialist phrase.
