It seems hardly a week goes by without a new revelation of supposedly safe and secure private information being “lost” by the Government. 25 million records of those in receipt of child benefit. details of those seeking to pass the driving test and now the medical records of patients.
Incredibly the Government has already spent hundreds of millions of pounds on a national database on which will be placed everyones supposedly private medical records and of course there are the Governments plans to introduce a National Identity Card Scheme with yet more of our personal details stored on computer programmes. I certainly do not trust the Government with this information and I doubt many others do either.
Away from politics I have been busy helping Susan with preparations for Christmas. Susan’s mother and father and an Uncle are coming to stay with us over Christmas so we are having to step up our catering operation!
