    Government reveals suppliers for the forthcoming ID card fiasco:

    EDS, IBM, Fujitsu

    Will they ever learn?

    EDS, with their almost unbroken track record of FAIL

    They're consistent if nothing else.

    Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

    Your Cut-Out-'n'-Keep Complaint Form For when The Government Loses All Of Your Personal Data:

    Dear F--k,

    I have just learned from The Daily Mail that some c--t in your employ has lost my personal details, having left a CD-ROM, his laptop and several USB sticks in a male brothel in Penge. His house is worth £340K.

    I am not claiming benefits, in jail, pre-op transgender, a single parent or Polish, and so have no rights whatsoever. Therefore, let me just say, "F--k you, w--ker!"

    Regards

    <write name here>

    Send to whoever is Prime Minister (tip: check first, it may have just changed).

    And who do you think they should buy off?

    Trotters Independent Traders?

    It's not the companies that they use that's at fault. It's the contracts that they negotiate that's the problem!

    Story I saw gave CSC not EDS. Not that there is much difference.

    EDIT : Double checked and It's CSC for the ID cards and EDS for the UK Borders, aka Immigration, project.

    Fujitsu and IBM are in for both.

    Ah sorry...in that case my picture was incorrect. Here is a replacement.

    Well the outcome could hardly be worse, could it?

    One could almost imagine board-room seats being kept warm for the fat backsides of our Labour lords and masters once the electorate have finally eliminated their careers as MPs and cabinet ministers.

    When is someone going to do some serious digging re. Pat Hewitt?
