The UK is on guard after a huge database containing loads of trivial details of everyone under 18 and accessible to around 400,00 people is called ‘unsafe’ – duh.

At the same time the US is parading it’s huge counter terrorism database – which no one will ever hack. Really.

You’d have thought they’d have learnt what having these large databases can do after the Germans marched into the Netherlands and used the most comprehensive people registrar in the world (at the time) to round up all the Jews. Guess not.
