Clegg asked what Brown meant when he talked about liberty given the DNA database and fingerprinting in school. Brown responded by saying "I take it that the right hon. Gentleman and the Liberal authorities support CCTV". Then Clegg said
Why has he consistently refused requests for more power to be given to the Information Commissioner? Why does he not do what is already done in Scotland and remove the DNA of innocent people from the database? Why will he not act immediately to stop the scandalous fingerprinting of our children at school?What does Brown say? "People in this country are reassured by the presence of CCTV; I hope that the right hon. Gentleman is not proposing to remove it." Now I know that David Cameron has pointed out already that Brown appears incapable of answering a question. Is it just me or does he also seem incapable of hearing them as well?
He's a bit like one of those old people that has selective deafness. At no point did Nick Clegg even mention CCTV, yet Brown seems to think he did. The guy's weird.
