Data Disaster

Well, as they say you couldn’t make it up! After £25 billion of our cash is loaned by a desperate Government to bail out Northern Rock now 25 million private and personal details of parents and children claiming child benefit go missing apparently lost in the post. In Bury alone this affects over 42,000 children. How on earth after this latest disaster can the Government really contemplate proceeding with the national Identity Card scheme?
Today I visited Broad Oak School and heard about the tremendous progress this school has made since it faced possible closure in the review process of 2005.
Monday, was a quiet day on the work front as it was our Wedding Anniversary so other than a quick shop an engagement in the evening I spent most of the day catching up with my paperwork after being away for a few days.
