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!

  1. It is the fault of us all for allowing our public institutions and services to become infected with twats, sadly the twats have become a majority within our government, public bodies, institutions, schools, broadcasters and the upper management of so many agencies that have power over us; The ultimate organisation populated by twats is the EUSSR.

    What’s the point?

    The average adult criminal has a string of offences behind them before they eventually get caught and get themselves a criminal record. For instance, nonces rarely get caught for a first offence.

    OK, there may be a tiny amount of under 16 year olds that are nasty little bastards with serious offences against them, but they would probably already be known and it is unlikely that they would want to become team leaders or coaches of sport.

    I would have thought that the majority of criminal records held by kids would be trivial, so what kind of criminal record would bar children from wanting to turn their lives around and do some good in society?

    When I was a child, there was a most effective method of dealing with children who stepped out of line: it was called corporal punishment. It amazes me that there hasn't been a squeak out of those who abolished this tried and trusted method, in respect of this blatant assumption of guilt in Nanny's 'brave new world'. Presumably, this is because they approve of this 'everyone is a criminal' approach, which is far more damaging to children than a dose of the cane!

    A guy that I work with was commenting on the number of forms and the fact he had to present his 10 year old daughter's passport for her to take part in a play. I made an off the cuff comment about being surprised that she didn't need a CRB. Not realising how close to the mark I was!

    I must be out of touch - how many 10 year old children have a passport?
