Downing Street on Phorm: 'Meh'

Craig McLean

Oh great

So when independent bodies return results the government don't like they are challenged and thrown out, vis the comments from Ash, but when the independant body whose ONLY JOB is to protect our private data pisses away said privacy with staggering negligence the government don't want to get involved.

Way to go, Waqui & co. One more shining example of your coundn'tgiveafuckery in action.

The ICO is a well-acknowledged and long-running joke, and until we get a government who takes their role seriously and sticks a rocket up them, none of us are safe from this and many other kinds of data-rape.

RE: Illegal?

(so many ACs in this thread....)

No it's not stopping anyone joining the union, it's banning access to a website - like many companies already do (places like facebook and myspace are good examples here). You might as well say they are "obstructing members from joining the union" because they won't give them free stamps, envelopes and pens to fill out their applications.

It is a bit po-faced though.

Now get that jerked knee back down where it belongs.

Jesus, this place is turning into the bloody "Sun". At least I'm not paying for it.
