Orwellian database (from the it’s-for-the-children department)

Email Print

The State (in the UK) continues to replace families:

The home life of every child in the country is to be recorded on a national database in the ultimate intrusion of the nanny state, it has emerged.

Computer records holding details of school performance, diet and even whether their parents provide a ‘positive role model’ for 12 million children will be held by the Government.

Police, social workers, teachers and doctors will have access to the database and have powers to flag up ‘concerns’ where children are not meeting criteria laid down by the state.

The database will also contain information on church attendance and the amount of veggies that kids eat. And no, this is not from The Onion.
