Datagate II - The Sequel
Another year, another IT scandal.
This time screw up, relating to the loss of a memory stick containing passwords to a government site via which people can pay parking fines and fill in tax returns, has been blamed on a private contractor (Atos Origin).
All very well, but it is the government that vets, approves and hires these firms.
Anyhoo, the extra icing on the cake is that Gordon "Smiler" Brown has admitted that the government cannot promise the safety of personal data entrusted by the public.
This coming from a government that wants to issue compulsory id cards, build a DNA database, place our medical records online and force us all to submit tax returns online.
Hardly reassuring is it?
There is some good news, the memory stick has been found...outside of the Orbital Pub in Cannock.
Tax does have to be taxing.
