All people in UK should have DNA recorded: Judge

ChiefGeneralManager (600991) writes | more than 6 years ago

The Courts 1

ChiefGeneralManager (600991) writes "Lord Justice Sedley, a UK appeal court Judge has proposed that the all people in the UK (inlcuding visitors) should have their DNA recorded on the national database. Sedley's argument is that the current database is 'indefensible' because it contains a hotch-potch mix of people, including children and those who've been in contact with the police. His view is we should make it compulsory for all DNA to be recorded to remove this anomaly. The UK Information Commissioner has expressed some concerns, but not dismissed the idea outright. Yet."

No doubt George Orwell's shade will be proud to graduate from a mere writer to a prophet. One of the last bricks in the wall of nightmares for a tiny 3rd world island of the not-so-distant future.
