They Are Already Doing it in Scotland

by Charles Pooter

Some moron named "Lord" Warner was interviewed on the Today programme this morning. He was defending the Govenment's evil plot to steal our medical records. One of his arguments was that "they've already implemented the scheme in Scotland" (I paraphrase).

As far as I'm concerned, if the Scotch implement a policy, that is reason enough not to do it here. When Scottish-puritan-protestantism meets the nannying impulses of nu-Labour-style socialism-lite, liberty is damned. From the screaming harridans of the snowdrop campaign, who confiscated the last pop-guns used by sporting shooters after Labour-connected Thomas Hamilton shot up a Scottish school, to the full ban on smoking in public places, to this latest medical database - Scotland is a testing ground for petty legislation that endangers our liberty and privacy.
