IT and NHS

Filed under: Politics/Current Affairs — Deryck @ 6:00 pm

After listening to Ross Anderson on Radio 4’s Today programme this morning I went straight to The Big Opt Out and filled out the opt out templates for myself, Mrs Deryck and Deryck Junior. Until any British Government is able to deliver a big IT project on time, to budget and without a jungle full of bugs I will keep my information well away from it’s databases.

Thatcher guilty

Thatcher pleads guilty. Heh heh. I blame the parents. It’s such a shame he plea bargained to just a fine because I like the idea of a Thatcher in jail.

The Observer

Here’s why war is bad; it brings out the worst in people. Just when we thought things couldn’t get much worse in Iraq.

Back home, British police and security services in new incompetence shock. Poor Kurds, haven’t they been through enough?

And, again. I have no wish to see members of the UK Royal Family become the victims of terrorists, no really, I simply can’t face another royal funeral.

The more astute will notice that I have just discovered the Observer’s website.
