Recommended reading: Coroners and Justice Bill – destroying data protection

23 Jan

Lee has penned a piece of essential reading over at LC regarding the newly announced Coroners and Justice Bill, which promises to have devastating consequences for our civil liberties and make a joke of the Data Protection Act.

It’s time for a change, people. These guys just can’t be trusted any longer. Power corrupts.

    Modernised the civil service?You see from where I’m sitting, the government has pretty much had its ass handed to it whenever it’s looked to make significant changes. Many civil servants got the pay they wanted, but were less inclined to actually agree to reforms. This is why outsiders, brought in by Brown to bring some commercial experience and business savvy, became frustrated by the archaic and resistant civil service. They’ve emasculated the BBC. They’ve almost killed it with a thousand papercuts. Its irrelevance is growing. Way to go.Northern Ireland? Thank 9/11. Terrorism isn’t cool any-more. Lessons for the French? I know, don’t the French wish they’d followed Bush too?The Germans have the sort of balance of trade we’d die for. Germans, in the main, have a far better standard of living than Brits, and are much less indebted too. Also, German GDP is higher.

    by lessons, I mean that we can learn from other people’s mistakes as well as success.think the current developments with the Beeb are very interesting, ultimately it is the public and not the politicians who will decide what kind of organisation would be best.modernised the civil service = a new direction has been set.
