'Phone calls database considered'

Writing about web page http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/7409593.stm

Oh for the love of all that's sane. Where to begin? No...all right? Just "No".

This kind of shit is why I have less than no faith in politics.

It was a stupid idea before, it's still a stupid idea, it won't work, it'll be too easily abused, and I seriously doubt it'll catch any real dingleberries.

Whatever happened to privacy?

Whatever happened to this being a free country?

What makes the government think they can protect this data? They don't exactly have a good track record...

You see, this is why I hate the Government…

One important line is the one way down at the very bottom:

The new law brings Britain in line with an EU directive on the retention of phone data.

I mean, why? What's the point? Is there a point?

Sorry, I didn't realise

If you've read the comments for my entry Union Elections then you'll know one of the comments I made was:

Don't vote awsome, vote for RON!
RON for all Union positions!!!
Who's with me!?

I have just received an email from Simon Lucas, the President of the Student's Union, in which he said

I'd imagine you were unaware that this comment constitutes a breach of the Union's Constitutional appendix on elections, which states that:

"6.9 - No member may promote Re-Open Nominations."

I'm afraid that as a member of the Students' Union you are bound by these rules whether you were aware of them or not.

and asked that the comment be removed.
Apparently,

If we were to go by the letter of the rules (as some people would have me do) then I should now be convening a disciplinary to look into this

So, of course, I'm very grateful that he'd prefer not to do this, and he also said he knew I didn't mean any harm.

The comment was not meant to be at all serious but, as requested, I have removed it and would just like to say:

Sorry, I didn't realise
