The ‘Guardian’ Never Met A Statist Intrusion They Didn’t Like…

…especially if it’s for the chiiilldreeeeennnn!

As the government prepares to introduce the new system, do you feel it is a positive step towards rooting out child abuse, or are you more concerned that the database will breach your and your children’s privacy?

Bit of a loaded question, as the answers fall mainly into the ‘nothing to hide, nothing to fear!’ camps, gleefully monstering any dissenters as being incipient child abusers themselves.

None of them seems to have read another story published in the very same rag:

Nearly 12,000 people over the past five years were wrongly labelled criminals due to inaccurate record checks, leading to Ā£1.9m paid out in compensation, campaigners have revealed.

Or…perhaps they consider that an appropriate sacrifice to their god?

    Hypocrisy and the Guardian go hand in hand, take a look at their tax arrangements.
    The ability for the readers of that socialist rag to twist reality whilst ignoring inconvenient facts is about as notorious as the Daily Mail readers civilisation is coming to an end narrative.

    I predict a huge “unintended consequences” from this one:

    Right away, you will find child admissions to A&E will drop, which will steepen, as soon as the first fake-prosecutions & attempts to snatch innocent children from innocent parents hit the papers.

    The next consequence, of course, will be a quite noticeable INCREASE in child mortality, since no-one will bring theor child to hospital until it’s at death’s door – by which time it will, often, be too late.

    Wait & see?

      Wouldn’t slightly intelligent abusers just register in casualty under a false name?

      Oh, it’ll take a while for the penny to drop, I’m betting.

    I can think of a couple who are perhaps over-cautious with one of their sons who regularly hurts himself being targeted.
    He almost lives in the local drop-in centre.

    These two stories were bugging me too. Thank goodness I’m not alone.

    It’s just the next stealth attempt to create the National DNA Database. They got too many objections when they started to use the Police as the key data-capture agents, then the NHS Connecting For Health IT approach proved to be the expected omnishambles.

    So now, it’s the Mk3 data-capture exercise – let’s face it, how many kids have never been subject to some medical panic ? Simply log every young visit to A&E (and out-of-hours GP too) and you’ll soon have constructed a stealth database for the whole of the next generation.

    Took a little longer than they’d hoped but, once they dragged up the cynical ‘it’s for the cheeeldren’ argument, we know they’re getting desperate.

      We do indeed, but…they do it, because it works… šŸ‘æ

    I believe Baby Peter Connelly was seen by a multitude of “professionals” for months and even in the days leading up to his death.

    If those paid by us to protect small children from those intent on neglecting, torturing, sexually abusing and/or killing them refuse to act on the evidence of a living, breathing child stood before them that they can see with their own two eyes then what chance on the words on a computer screen.

    This is just another exercise in “seen-to-be-done” costing yet more money and actually doing sweet FA.

    Same shit, different day. Nothing to see here, just hand over the cash and move along…

      You are absolutely correct. Baby Connolly was killed by a combination of evil parents and a care system which completely bloody failed to protect him even when continued injuries were evident.

      But now we’re told that a national database is essential to prevent cases like Baby P from happening. It’s a measure of how fucking stupid the authorities think we are (and maybe the public is that stupid) and how weak our media are that statements like that appeared all over the press unchallenged this Christmas.

      Clearly many of the wrong people are still running the system.
