Guilty Until Proven Innocent
I see that Nanny's obsession with her mantra of "won't someone think of the children?", has reached dizzying heights of intrusiveness and zealotry.
Criminal records checks are still being routinely carried out on children as young as ten (the deemed age of criminal responsibility), despite the "promise" by the government that these checks would be scaled back.
Children are having their background vetted when they volunteer for such normal childhood activities as; cricket/tennis coaches, doing work experience, leading girlguides and scouts etc. Additionally, the children of foster carers are also having their records checked.
It seems that there were nearly 60,000 applications for CRB checks on children aged 16 and under (including four 10 year olds) in the last year.
Some councils and organisations engage in blanket vetting of all youngsters, ie they assume that all humans are threats to others until a bureaucratic check "proves" otherwise!
Hardly a nice message to send to children entering adulthood!
This of course provides a nice little earner for the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB), for you see they are paid a nice fat fee for every check requested!
