Basic competence is just too much to expect.

The other day the British Government lost an absolute butt load of personal information. They sent it in the mail. Unregistered. On CDs.
And it just gets worse. News - Missing discs 'hold witness protection scheme IDs'
DETAILS of hundreds of people given new identities under witness protection programmes are included in the child benefit discs lost in the post by HM Revenue and Customs, it was claimed today.
Up to 350 people who have been given new names and re-homed after giving evidence against criminals are said to be among 25 million parents on the register.
It is claimed both the old and new identities are included on the discs, potentially putting their lives at risk and raising the prospect of a costly exercise to hide them again.
