Talk About A Waste Of Money

ContactPoint, the Government's latest data base, only cost £224million - which for this government is probably, so far, bargain of the year - and once introduced will be accessible to 390,000 staff, according to a report by the BBC.

Beverley Hughes, speaking in the House of Commons,  said the database would allow people working with children to "put their particular piece of the jigsaw into the whole picture". 

And if parents of children did not wish to have details of their children on this data base? Showing how democratic this collection of control freaks (freaks being the operative word) who are also known as our Government-in-Departure really are, Children's Minister Baroness Morgan said parents would not be allowed to remove their children from the list.

In his first speech as Prime Minister, in Brighton 1997, Tony Blair said "And we need to bring a change to the way we treat each other" and "This is not about preaching to individuals about their private lives" whilst talking about the relationship between government and the people.

T'would appear these Labour people have pretty short memories - when it suits them!
