Reasons to be fearful, Part Four

Here in the UK, there exists an organisation called the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA) who issue driving licenses and tax disks (you need a “tax disk” to show you have paid Vehicle Excise Duty to keep your vehicle on the road). It has been revealed that they have made £9 million since 2002 by selling details of drivers to car clamping companies. Given that most clamping companies are run by ex-convict thugs, who like to extort money by clamping cars with pregnant women, elderly people and the disabled, what chance is there that this information won’t be used for other criminal purposes?

And while we are at it, it turns out that way more people than necessary, will have access to your National Health Service data.

National Identity database anyone?
