Continued Nastiness

Here's another bit of nastiness that came in under the radar (though oddly enough this link is to the BBC website - not that this kind of information ever gets onto the TV news where most people are likely to see it): the National Staff Dismissal Register. Further info here. The database is to contain details of all staff dismissed for gross misconduct.

The nasty touch, typical of anything promoted or aided by New Labour, is the fact that the database also records details of 'individuals who have been dismissed (whether prosecuted or otherwise) or left the company whilst under suspicion'. In other words, you don't have to have been charged with a crime to be treated as guilty. This is similar to the Allegations Management System being operated by various local authorities, and the Independent Safeguarding Authority.

Obviously, fiddling your expenses if you're an MP isn't covered by this system.

The Mail has a pop at DroopersList. A bit easy, but we need something to cheer us up.

Gordon Brown, Destroyer of Liberties. Arsehole.

Which is more corrupt - Bulgaria or the EU?
