Speaking too soon

A few days ago I commented on revelations by the Guardian that Police are targeting thousands of political campaigners in surveillance operations and storing their details on a database. I concluded by asking how long now before this database is found on an unencrypted memory stick on a commuter train into London?

Clearly, I spoke too soon. BBC Scotland report today that an unencrypted memory stick containing information on hundreds of police investigations has gone missing in Edinburgh. The USB memory stick contains 750 entries on vehicles "of interest" to police, along with other intelligence.

That will teach me!
There's only one thing worse than having your name on this database, is not having your name on this database!!
