It is not so long ago that Tory shadow justice minister, Nick Herbert backed the call for "a new offence of reckless mishandling of personal data" and described the loss of data CDs by HM Revenue and Customs as suggesting "a cavalier attitude to the handling of personal information by government agencies".

Will he now be calling for those responsible for e-mailing the names, addresses, telephone numbers and intentions of 8,000 voters in the Crewe and Nantwich by-election to a radio station in the Isle of Man to be prosecuted?

As the e-mail came from the Conservatives I will not be holding my breath in anticipation.
It really is appalling, and shows that the UK citizen should not trust the Conservatives, in spite of their lofty words, any more than the current IT-ignorant administration.
