Finally someone notices...

I know it's not my whinging that's highlighting the loss of personal freedom and the expansion of the nanny state into a police state-lite in the UK but I'm still taking credit for this:
A group of eminent lawyers and scientists is calling for anyone not convicted of a crime to have their details wiped from the DNA database.
The Nuffield Council on Bioethics said it is "unjustified" to keep people on the National DNA Database when they have not been convicted of any offence.
Fucking right...
There's even a call so that:
People who volunteer their DNA for elimination purposes, such as victims or witnesses, should have the right to ask for the DNA to be removed, said the council.
Can you believe they can't now? These days you can only ask, 'Where does it end?'
