Home Office Watch


I just got around to looking at this site. Home Office Watch is a Liberal Democrat site and is being run by the Liberal Democrat Home Affairs Team.
Latest quote from the site is as follows :
Mr. Clegg: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what databases are controlled by his Department and its agencies; and what percentage of the data in each database he estimates is inaccurate or out of date.
John Reid: The information requested is not readily available and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.
as they go on to say
So: they don’t really know how many databases they have, and they don’t really know how accurate they are. And they expect us to trust them to run the National Identity Register, potentially the most complex citizen database in the world?
Thanks, but no thanks.

Not only that, but it doesn't look like he wants to find out or make any efforts to do so. 'Disproportionate cost'? Disproportionate to what? The importance of knowing exactly how right Kafka was? No, that couldn't possibly be important, I suppose.

Same old same old , "don't know, don't care" - and don't even start on the 10,000 plus false passports issued!
