Well you can't deny the "review" into data security isn't turning things up can you? I bet Brown is cursing the fact he announced it. I just walked past the TV screen at the front of my office and Ruth Kelly is making a statment that a hard drive with 3 million driver license details has been lost in Iowa of all places.
Update: Seriously though, I said in November that HMRC might just be the beginning. The review that has been laucnhed across Whitehall looks like it is going to show systemic failures. The information security implications are huge, but the political ramifications could very well destroy the Government in the New Year if another Secertary of State has to come to the house and admit that the whole basket of eggs is broken.
