So what do you make of this new Police database?   It is going to contain the details of 15,000,000 British Citizens.  We're told that only 9,000,000 people in the UK have criminal records.

I'm sorry but I find those figures ridiculous.  How the fuck can there be 9 million people in the UK with criminal records.  Does that include speeding in a car?  What do they deem to be a criminal record?  They are trying to tell us that roughly 1 in 6 are criminals.  I can't believe that figure.  Maybe they're all Romanian Gypsies or something.  I don't know how many criminals you know, but I am failing to think of any!

If they're are 9 million criminals in the UK, then prison must be a deterrent, because there are only around 95,000 in jail in the UK and I make that about 1%.  So then in other words there must be 99 criminals on the streets for everyone that's in the clink.  I don't think so.  So what have the other 6 million done that are going to be on the database?  Farted in a pubic place and been caught on smelly vision CCTV?  Scratched their balls in public?  Worn tight leggings in public, (known as mumbling pants in Scotland because you can see their lips move)?  Does the database even operate in Scotland as our legal system id different from England?

No, in my opinion, it is just another way to extend state control over the citizens of this country, in much the same way as the 'terrorism' threat has been used to restrict the freedoms of individuals.  We are my friends moving towards a police state which will one day make some of the Arab states look mild.

Aye - Scotland is at the forefront of gathering data on its citizens and have entered into a share agreement with the rest of the UK.

Mcgonners, I remember seeing that at the time and having some disquiet about it. The difference I think is that the Scottish NHS initiative is done with the best intentions without any ulterior motive in mind. In saying that these projects are easily shanghaied by Government departments.

I just don't know why they need to keep details on 15 million people with supposed 'criminal' records and indeed what these records are.

Niko, they certainly like to manipulate large lists of names aka the referendum vote in the 70s.

You're starting to sound like a Cyprus market trader. Does Cyprus have extradition with the UK yet or are you going to be like that Polly Peck guy?
