UK Child Database: The Worst Form Of Government Intrusion, Including All The Rest

Honestly, I don't know what's more whacked out over there in England:

  • the fact that they're actually serious about starting a single massive database with details on every child in the country, which will be available for use by hundreds of thousands of government, education, health, and police/security personnel.
  • the fact that they're excluding the children of celebrities and politicians--and some domestic violence victims--from said database in order to protect their privacy [pronounce it with a short 'i' for proper effect].
  • the UK Education Minister flacking for this totalitarian debacle is actually named Lord Adonis.
