ContactPoint - Another useless database.

After the usual plethora of delays we have come to expect in public sector ICT projects Cap Gemini have today begun the roll out of the ContactPoint system, a database holding the personal details of all 11 million children in England and Wales.

The first part of the roll out is to train 300 council workers as administrators, it will then be rolled out to 19 or so 'Early Adopters' - a motley group of Councils and (fake charities funded by the state) charities including Barnardos. The eventual aim is to enable access by an estimated 390,000 users throughout England and Wales.

Yep another database to be leaked, lost, dumped, filled with piss poor dubious and inaccurate data - much like the criminal records bureau - staffed by yet more pen pushing beancounting paperclip movers who wages come from tax receipts.

No proof that it will save a single childs life, stop any abuse or be of any use to anyone. Still that has never stopped Labour from spunking away trillions on poorly drafted IT projects.

Gordon's problem is he thinks that the way to resolve the rapidly deepening economic crisis is via 'stimulus packages' with magic money plucked off the magic printing press.

With the ultimate of getting the banks to lend again and rebuild the very credit bubble and circumstances that landed us in the shit in the first place.

Like holding an alcoholics meeting in the local pub, you get full attendance but they all end up dead.
