Re: Not Good
Why should housing know anything about driving licences (note spelling)? Or health unless that is a specific reason for a specific kind of housing? Or education? Or even employment?
There should be no presumption that everyone, permanent staff, contractors, "outsourced" workers, who can put "civil service" or similar on his CV should be able to delve into one's life, put two and two together to make five or even to make four.
Freedom is a difficult concept because freedom entails risk for all parties. It often includes actual mishap. The dreadful mistake, perpetrated now in the name of ant-terrorism, is that "safety" trumps freedom.
If you really want maximum safety and to forgo freedom, lock yourself in your house in your gated "community" in your rigorously policed state, with your satchel full of permits for this and for that.
But note that dear old GB resists even the most basic, voluntary identity card even though this would reduce the need to display details of one's electricity bill or bank account to some jobsworth just to get a service and do away with passport requirements for the whole of Europe plus many other countries i.e. increase freedom.
It is this distrust of freedom that fuels the degradatation of our society towards a delayed "1984" and such idiocies as the desire to remove OUR freedom and our childrens' freedom to live and work where they want in, for example, the 26 EU countries - voluntary imprisonment in our own, possibly shrinking and ever more controlled little country.
Overall, the cost of safety and efficiency is infinitely higher than the cost of freedom (by which I do not mean each for himself and devil take the hindmost - I do believe in solidarity e.g. national health, education, social welfare, travel systems as disease ridden poverty and ignorance are not freedom).
