Children's Views of the Database

I apologise for this, but I cannot help it: I TOLD 'EM SO. I've been batting on about the consequences of abuse of confidentiality since the inception of the database fiasco. The Guardian reports that children agree and that it will stop them using services.

(Could this be the hidden agenda after all?)

It's great that children are not prevented from voicing their insights about the likely dangers. What chances, though, are there of their very valid objections being taken seriously?

I haven't, as yet, been involved in any campaign against this so would be grateful, Carlotta, if you could let me know of anything that individuals can do - as and when you know of course.
