    I think that you can put away your outrage for the moment.

    I do not support the principle of ID cards, and I expect a colossal and expensive balls-up to be made of introducing them, but I can't really see what the issue is with this particular story.

    Some people who have access to the database are looking up records without authorisation. There is some auditing in place that has identified this.

    Granted, I would expect them to tighten-up the monitoring for an ID cards database, but that is not an enormous step for them to take from where they are.

    Simple solution: make unauthorised access to the data a criminal offence with a long jail stretch.

    Oh, what's that, it already is.

    And these people haven't been arrested and banged up?

    I think that says it all about what they think of our personal data.

    pull out the plugs on the servers and shove screwdrivers through the hard disks. Burn any backup tapes.

    Typical CUK. Thread started on ID cards. In 3 posts it has turned into a link fest to pictures of people with metal through their bell ends
