All Your Children Are Belong Us Database Goes Live

ContactPoint, the government's 'answer' to child abuse, has gone live today.

Childrens' Minister Baroness Delyth Morgan has admitted the database will be accessible to 400,000 people.

There was some discussion on this during today's Woman's Hour, but otherwise it was not mentioned on BBC's national news.

ContactPoint is just one more part of the government's all-encompassing database and surveillance system which, if it is allowed to continue, will track and record the life of every individual from birth to grave.
